everything in its right place
all the beating drums, the celebration guns
you can't kill us all
silence kills the revolution
to be someone must be a wonderful thing
you're old and your hands are grey
his life was warfare
tell your friends and your cousins we need you
i say we line em all up and we gun em all down

pablo picasso never got called an asshole:
Doug Feith -- he of the Office of Special Plans, holder of the title "fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth" (given to him by the second-stupidest) -- has this to say about those concerned about torturing dudes. Via Paul Kiel, when Feith was asked by a Vanity Fair reporter if he was concerned that denying Geneva Conventions protections to suspected terrorists in U.S. custody would harm America's moral authority, he sagely replied:
"The problem with moral authority," he said, was "people who should know better, like yourself, siding with the assholes, to put it crudely."OK, show of hands. Who wants me to violate ground rules and tell you all about my off-the-record lunch at TNR with Doug Feith in 2003?
Admitting that you ate lunch with Doug Feith is shaming enough that you've already done sufficient penance in advance -- therefore you should definitely go ahead and pass on the good word.
