More ranting on Zimabwe:
The people are starving. The US has sent many tons of corn to the starving people. The US is evil because the food we sent to the starving people contains some GM corn?
A. Let's ask those starving people if they want the food.
B. Ok fine you don't want our help we'll give it to someone else. Beggars can't be choosers you assholes.

Many people said it at the time but I'm glad someone has a visual now. How the WTC should be rebuilt.

Lileks has commented more than once that if Target sold burbon he'd pack up the family and live in the parking lot. What with the new super-targets that's more plausible but, much as I like target there are a few things they lack. On the other hand Walmart really does carry everything, (though they don't carry burbon in this state they do in the south.) It would be entirely possible to live in a Walmart for months, in fact that was part of the plot in the book/ movie Where the Heart Is.
Ok. So, although Walmart has that subtle trashy feel, they do in fact cater to almost every human need. Well now they're branching out into the
spiritual as well.
What do you think? Are people so busy that they need to be able to get a religious counseling pit stop between the toilet paper and the lawnmowers?
