Don't Expect The
Rest Of Us To Join In
Really sickening -- they are showing the religious ceremonies on TV here as I write this. It really is very creepy. If there is a god (which obviously I don't believe there is) where was he on Tuesday? What's this stuff about giving thanks for those who survived? I notice they're not blaming god for those who died, but that would make the same amount of sense. I'm so annoyed, I don't think I'm making sense. If it makes them feel better, fine, but don't expect the rest of us to join in.
A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
