Mankind is basically a battlefield... a dark cellar in which a well-bred spinster lady and a sex crazed monkey are forever engaged in mortal combat, the struggle being refereed by a rather nervous bank clerk. -- D. Bannister
Is it just me, or is it that BOTH the WTO and the
chunderheads protesting against the WTO in Seattle are
starting to look equally repellent?
Sure, the World Trade Organization is big-time Evil With Capital Letters and is
probably doing voodoo on trees and Ammurican jobs even as we speak, BEHIND
CLOSED DOORS and whatnot, but some of these protesters look like they would
lose an argument with a ball-peen hammer or a variety of other simple household
It's the "Fuck the issues, let's tear shit up" crowd out in force, and, as

Like the damned witches, for instance. CNN reports "60 San Francisco-area
witches" have made the trek to Seattle for the big marshmallow toast. "We are

of tossing a Molotov cocktail makes the occasion a festive one.
Three cheers for lockstep know-nothingism. Maybe the John Brown Anti-Clan
League will show up and address the really important issues here.
