Fair & Balanced

When 32 students are shot to death at Virginia Tech, the media drapes over the school, the families of the victims, and the survivors with round-the-clock coverage in which every eyebrow flicker of emotion of everyone involved is lovingly recorded for posterity. We hear who said what to whom, who sang what when, who hugged whom and a second-by-second account of the incident.

When the same horrific event happens approximately every 6 hours in Iraq, America relegates it to a footnote in the ongoing narcissistic degradation of this nation.

But I'm not bitter.
