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.

The most bizarre part of the terrorist attacks in Morocco was that, according to all stories I've seen, one of the targets was a Jewish cemetery. I can understand how it makes some sort of twisted sense to attack a hotel or a community center. But I can barely comprehend why anybody, without the aid of adolescent hormones or substantial alcohol, usually both, would want to desecrate a cemetery. And a suicide attack - giving up your own life to ruin some graves - is just beyond any kind of comprehension.
