April 9, 2003

I've learned at least one vitally important lesson from this tumultuous day . . . if you ever manage to wrestle absolute power from a subjugated population, resist the urge to erect colossal statues of yourself unless you're absolutely sure they can't be toppled by an angry mob. Funny how this is so often overlooked.

My fat-brained niece found some cheery images while pretending to listen to her professor's lecture today:

New York City -- 1776

Paris -- 1870

Budapest -- 1956

Moscow -- 1991

Baghdad -- 2003

"Heartless killer preparing to oppress"

"Infidel harlot tool of the Zionists"
