Well, too bad -- not really in the mood to emote about the war and all. I've been listening to the news all day (both actively and passively), from waking up to hearing that the Iraqis had drunkenly lobbed a few Scuds over the Kuwaiti border, bouncing them off the desert surface like they were trying to win a tennis match, to now, with Ted Koppel posing next to a line of M1 Abram tanks trekking across the border into Iraq, the drivers no doubt whistling "Over There" with their sardine-esque buddies. Definitely was surreal watching the initial bombings this morning -- very odd seeing live, static views of a city bombing. Sort of like a Jerry Bruckheimer film directed by Aleksandr Sokurov (film geeks: cue laughter).
