Everything that Rises...

Wow. Things do happen in threes. Two were on a personal level: both my brother and I had very good news today. The third: Moussaoui was given a life sentence in jail for his role in the 9/11 attacks, rather than the death penalty. The jurors aren't quite as insane as Moussaoui himself. Good sign. I hope he gets treatment for his mental illness inside, though I sincerely doubt it. At least we aren't moving completely backwards: exterminating the mentally ill (or, if we want to split hairs, castrating them) for "the greater good."

Yes, the 9/11 attacks were . . . well, there are no words. But Moussaoui should not be our scapegoat. Just put him away, get him help, and stop letting him yell fire in a crowded building. It just shows us how insane he really is.
