Choose Wisely...

I found a link to the Nick Berg video the day the story broke. I pulled the link up and hovered my cursor over it, my index finger poised to click on it. I thought of his family, and of the reports that they had collapsed on their lawn, not so much at learning of his murder but at the knowledge that the video was available worldwide for viewing. In that instant, my choice was clear. I opted to skip it. I already know the horrific lengths men can go to in the name of religion or fanaticism. And now I'm really glad.

I'm not going to bore you with requests for donations for the AIDSWalk tomorrow. It seems only a couple of well-meaning souls are interested.
