Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

It occurred to me not long after 9/11 that this was an ideal opportunity for somebody who had been in the Towers to just walk away and play dead. Now one case of that has actually been confirmed. It isn't clear from the story that this person ever really was in the WTC - it seems he probably wasn't. But he pretended to be so that an ongoing criminal investigation of him would be dropped.
That at least I can understand. The disturbing part is that I found it looking to see if I could confirm this genuinely warped story I found at jekyl.com. (Jekyl has no permalinks.) I just have no comment on this one.
