Comments on the World at Large

Yes, yes, I'm notoriously absent.

Here's an interesting link to a woman who lost her son in the war in Iraq. According to the article, when the President met with her to "comfort" her about the death of her son, he was fairly glib, and continually referred to her as "Mom." As of right now, she is picketing outside of Bush's Crawford ranch, stating that she will not leave until she receives a face-to-face with the President. Apparently, the best the Bush camp can offer the poor woman is the threat of jail time.
