i'll post about it, too
I have a ritual when I sit down at the computer to begin my blog-day. I check my email first, and spend however much time it takes to weed out the spam comments (252 this morning). After I get rid of the shit, I try to reply to as many emails as I can, although I never get around to all of them. If I missed you, I apologize.
I usually surf a few blogs before I start writing. That exercise gets me in the mood. I check some news links and see if I find any good fodder. Sometimes, I find EXCELLENT FODDER, but other people already wrote about it before I did. Just Damn! If somebody else already beat that horse to death, I'm not going to go there.
But occasionally, a story is just too good to pass up, such as this one. EVERYBODY will be blogging about Arafat's death, and I'm not going to miss that boat. I'm going to write him a damn good obituary.
Besides, I think the bastard is already dead. You don't think "Arafat's spokesman" would lie to us, do you?
Sleeping??? Yeah, sleeping WITH THE FISHES.
Some have said, that even if he was dead, it wouldn't be announced as such until 72 hours after the fact so that the body bombs could get their shit in one sock.
It will be interesting to see if we ever really "know" when he died, if he's dead.
With France, you can't tell. It could be another oil for food type thing with them. Although I'm not sure what benefit they'd get from it other then not pissin' off all the people of Arafat's religion in their country.
Did you get my second email with the offer of help with the comment spam?
"Right now he's sleeping" = "He's not dead, he's just asleep." Death be not proud, for Arafat only sleeps. Ah to sleep. Perhaps he dreams, but of death only, the fiend - death of others and himself. May he experience the torture he enacted upon others, eternally in his dreams. [Thanks, to John Donne]
He's been dead for some time now. What has he done besides blow kisses to the French? The question is, Who's running the place?
They're planning his funeral, according to MSNBC. I have the link posted on my blog.
Gee, why would they do that for someone as healthy as he is supposed to be?
I wonder if the Palestinians will now declare an Intifada against Paris. One can only hope.
Arafat? Brain dead? How does one tell?
