Can I Start Crying Yet?

As the mother closed her tear drained eyes she squeezed the tiny hand one last time. Never again would that little face bring bright sunshine and the glow of unbridled love into her life. If only her two jobs had brought in enough money for some health insurance maybe the cancer would have been discovered soon enough to treat.

Today in the NY Times:
After spending more than $4.5 billion on screening devices to monitor the nation's ports, borders, airports, mail and air, the federal government is moving to replace or alter much of the antiterrorism equipment, concluding that it is ineffective, unreliable or too expensive to operate.

Change the details and repeat this scene how many thousands of times? The impact of this administration will echo across the centuries. The negative karma and bad juju generated by Bush and his cronies will stain humankind forever.
