Yesterday, I wrote about the pope’s visit to Israel, which has been inevitably controversial. If you can’t please all the people all the time, you can’t really please the Israelis and Palestinians, um, ever. Or, “Opinions differ as to whether he is fostering peace or creating fresh conflict.”
When eternal conflict is on my mind, I always think of the Barry McGuire song, “Eve of Destruction.” It’s kind of a “bummer” that a song that was written so long ago is still totally applicable today.
Also a bummer was the fact that, as a reminder of what will happen if the world is completely nuked to pieces, a giant cockroach (I’m talking like 4 inches long at least, sans antenas,, which were also 4 inches) came to my kitchen last night. Yes, he will own my kitchen after the whole world blows up.
