Make the talking voices shut up, already.

You know what?? Why in the hell do we have to hear that a blast occurred in a baghdad restaurant? Even better, in an restaurant in an upscale baghdad neighborhood.

That’s an oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one. Upscale Baghdad. damn, we’ve blown the place to bits. I’m sure there’s not much left to be “upscale,” even though I doubt anything was upscale before we got there. remember, they were under the ruling of that Idiot for all those years.

Yes, people keep on blowing up busses and damn restaurants over there. I’m sorry, but I just don’t care. I don’t live there. It’s not like this is a “special” occurance. It happens every damn day. Getting on a bus in Israel is like playing ring around the rosies in the LA ghetto. You just don’t do it. Same with going to an F-ing new years eve party in Baghdad. Think twice, Jose.

Same with Iran and their lovely little earthquake. Yes, it was bad. But, helloooo– your freaking town IS BUILT OUT OF UN-REINFORCED MUD HOUSES. If you tend to have really bad earthquakes, perhaps you should use something besides mud???

It’s to the point now where I really don’t hear hardly ANY American news. Okay, wait. It was ALL about the flu, but now we’re on to Mad Cow. Who cares? I’d like our normal everyday news back. Give me gangs and presidential elections. Damn, just stop reporting on the fact that some terrorist took a dump on a street in the Middle East.

    My problem with the media coverage today was with Princess Anne’s dog biting a maid, and it was on the main page of CNN.com. I got bit by a dog once and my mom didn’t even want to hear about it.

    An upscale restaurant in Baghdad is one at which you don’t have to kill your own food. And they have forks, too.
