Falling from up high

To the Editor:

For the most powerful few (who could bring peace to this earth overnight), the deaths of millions means nothing. The masses of us are insects down among the grass roots, to be stomped upon and obliterated for this whim or that, here 10, there 10,000, or a million, or ten million, etc. Unbeknownst to us, they also stalk and kill each other, from time to time, for this reason or that. Out of self protection, they are constantly spying on each other. Thus, they have few secrets from one another. The one with the most to hide is the greatest danger to the others. Each one of them is a Stalin.

Sincerely Yours,

Remembering a Madeleine Albright book signing last year in Canada

To the Editor:

Madeleine Albright signs her name

The old dried up bitch Madeleine Albright
The unrepentant sow, a disgusting sight.
Memoirs written in Iraqi children's blood
For shrew and bitch the price was right.

She sits shriveled signing books without shame
Washing blood from hands and blame
The old crow sits, cackles, signs her name
To death to profit to crime the same.

Those who came to see the ugly do
Witnessed scream from bitch, crone, and shrew
Get out, Get out this is human organ sale
For heart, a liver, kidney, lungs she writes her name.

Separate the Wheat from the Chaff

To the Editor:

It must please the senses of the critics right and left to mollify the FBI and all the other police authorities for the tragedy in Boston (though they did solve the case in three days). But I wonder how these critics would separate the wheat from the chaff when officials are dealing with some 100,000 threats a year.

We live in an unstable and violent age. If people believe that revolution will solve the problem they should only look at the Arab Spring and beyond. As a conservative, I am fully aware that we are facing a structural and ecological crisis to which we have yet to find a response, if there is one. Scapegoating officials won't do.
