Random thoughts.

Recently, while pondering what Mount Rushmore will look like with Ronald W. Reagan's and George W. Bush's busts on it, I thought of a line from MASH. It was actually written and delivered by Alan Alda as a sardonic comment, but look at the Middle East today and imagine if it would be a better or worse place if the following came true:

"I don't know why they're shooting at us. All we want to do is bring them democracy and white-bread. Transplant the 'American Dream'. Freedom, achievement, hyperacidity, affluence, flatulence, technology, tension. The inalienable right to an early coronary sitting at your desk while plotting to stab your boss in the back. Now that's entertainment."

Entertainment indeed.
