"both sides are about as bad"

I guess I see a serious moral difference between a side that drops leaflets warning civilians of incoming attacks and encouraging them to move/leave, so that military targets and weapons caches can be destroyed with a minimum of civilian casualties, and a side that straps bombs to 15 year olds and sends them into a Sbarro's to blow up 40 people who are trying to enjoy lunch.

Perhaps you don't see any difference, and that's your prerogative, but that kind of thinking ("we're no better because we do rotten stuff too") is exactly what is going to lead to the downfall of Western civilization. What scares me even more is that a lot of people think we deserve it. What scares me even more than THAT is that the people who think we deserve it are almost without exception educated an enlightened liberal thinkers who cherish the progress made in the name of liberty - desegregation, women's sufferage, the gradual triumphs of the gay rights movement, etc. These things would fly right out the window across the globe in the absence of countries like the U.K. and U.S.

I've begun a webcomic. Having been a corner-of-my-notebooks cartoon doodler since I was about 12 years old, I figured it was a good time to start actually producing something since I can self-publish it on my web site. Which I'm doing. Go to The Man Pages, my blog, and you'll find links to my comics on the right. As of this posting, there are only four entries so far, in various qualities.

Yeah, just like I was supposed to have a flying car, affordable robot that can clean, cook, mow the lawn, and feed the pets, AND my fully-automated home by 2000?

Please.

It's coming, fools!

To thine own self be true. (If not that, at least make some money.)
