Really? Really?

The story is of interest to people. How did this happen? What could have led someone to make these kind of choices, especially when their life seemed pretty normal to begin with? They're asking legitimate questions. There's nothing wrong with that.

I'm guess I'm sorry if people don't like the picture or the caption; maybe next time TIME should draw some horns on him and a pointed tail and caption it "evil mcevilpants: evil, or pure evil?" Because, you know, people didn't get that from the whole bombing thing.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

PM me if you have computer troubles. I work in IT for a living and can probably solve your problems. My rate is $expensive/hr, but I'm still cheaper than Creep Squad and, unlike them, will actually get the job done or let you know if I can't.

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
