Today I feel like one of those monkeys that we shot into space in the 60's.

I'm strapped to the damn chair without the slightest idea of why I'm hurtling out of control to a certain doom.

Maybe it's just the state of this country making me feel powerless. The hawks have completely taken-over, we're a sham across the planet - this morning I actually heard a lawyer for one of these soldiers in the Iraqi prisoner photos using the "they'd do it to us" defense. Is this now a legitimate defense here? Have we completely lost our minds?!?

Even Diane Sawyer blinked and paused for a moment...
...but she didn't say anything.

I think we're all strapped-in.
