Steve, don't eat that

Just wanted to share something funny for a change. Found this blog/website, and I couldn't stop laughing. The language is pretty foul, but man - it is so funny. This guy eats random things that are generally meant for human consumption in some culture or another. Pickled Porkrinds, to Prison Wine. Good Raffs. He gets a little off track with Beggin Strips, but it is still enormously entertaining (He makes a BLT out of the Bacon shaped dog treats.)

Revenge begats revenge.

So I was poking around after Zarqawi (sp)'s death, on CNN's website.

They had an interview with a man who's son was most likely killed by Zarqawi about his reaction to the death.

CNN Story

Aside from the finger pointing, non productive political stuff towards the end of the article, I was really intrigued by his response. We humans thirst for Justice. Eye for an Eye stuff. It seems fair. But I identified with this man, as I looked at the picture of the man dead, there was no satisfaction for me. I felt satisfaction in the capture of Hussein, but not in this death. 1000 lbs of bombs didn't seem to fix the situation, and infact seem to encourage the violent culture that is part of the terrorist mindset.

My friend John seemed to hint at the lack of satisfaction provided by the ending of this life in his Blog:God, Baseball, Life: Where, O Death is Your Sting?

The forgiveness is what has gotten me - but it is little odd, because his forgiveness doesn't seem to include forgiving our President for mistakes an casualties of the war.
