THAT WAS THE INSANE WEEK THAT WAS
In Arizona the police are now empowered to demand US citizens prove their legal status by producing their papers. In Oklahoma women are forced to watch an ultrasound, hear a detailed description of the fetus, and be subjected to other pro-life propaganda before they can receive an abortion. In Louisiana, the vastly bigger-than-predicted oil slick is reaching the beaches on the Gulf and coating the birds, while a second rig capsizes. In Kentucky, the roof of another coalmine caved in. In Washington, Fabrice (Fab) Tourre of Goldman Sachs – clearly a graduate of the Gordon Gekko business school – arrogantly denied intentionally cashing in on the housing crash by betting against home loan securities and misleading Goldman’s own investors to a Senate sub-committee. And that’s only this week. In the larger timespan, unemployment remains the norm, two wars drag on, and the atmosphere is tainted with even more ugliness. Do I weep, scream, hit the streets, or hide under the bed? The aliens can’t get here soon enough.
