Who is the Designated Mourner? – An Addendum to the Previous Post

Posted in Uncategorized by echan on April 19, 2007

Yes, yes, craziness abounds right now.  If I had one wish at this moment, it would be a direct line to the president of NBC News to beg him not to play the video footage sent to NBC by the VT gunman.

And on another completely sad note, on Marketplace today, they ran a heartbreaking story on farmers in India committing suicide out of desperation.

I, however, am still stuck on last week’s news.

I am a broken record.

I just remembered that I noted Joseph Heller’s passing with a Vonnegut-penned elegy. Now, that these two dirty old men who write of war’s horrors are gone, who among their tribe is left to mourn them?

    I guess we just have to wait for the next generation of dirty old men.

    Also, that Bright Eyes cover is amazing.
