A Bad Week for Sanity

In a time capsule some day, this week will go down as one in which the human race lost ground.

The Virginia Tech slaughter reminds us of how shaky the ground under our feet really is, and the TV screen pours true madness into our minds, showing us how helpless we are against it.

In Baghdad, suicide bombers give us even more than more of the same.

In Washington, Alberto Gonzales demonstrates the fallacy of the comforting old saying, ”They must know what they’re doing or they wouldn’t be where they are.”

And the U.S. Supreme Court shows us what the Bush madness can really do. In the words of a Yale Law Professor, the arbiters of civilized behavior go “beyond Alice in Wonderland: criminalize abortion to protect women.”

Coming next week: plague and pestilence?
