Just when it becomes absolutely, positively, and incontrovertibly impossible for moral confusion to become, well, more confused, along come the 9/11 remembrances, the global "outrage" over Pope Benedict's speech, and the virtual dead silence on Mohammed Khatami's utterances (and non-utterances) at Harvard. All in the same week no less. The 9/11 commemorations were nauseating, even terrifying in their sentimentality; the Pope's political non-apology apology (apology for what?---didn't Jesus get angry at moral hypocrisy?) wasted an opportunity to create a modicum of moral clarity; and Khatami pulled a Kerry on executing gays ("I was for executing gays before I was against it"). The moral and intellectual core of western civilization was utterly mocked this week but we seem to not know or care.
However, other crucial observations were in sharp focus. For example, even if the weightlifter outed Plame, Rove also outed her-----oh yeah, and the new father, son and holy ghost (McCain, Graham and Powell) have got it right on Geneva convention rule 3c, paragraph 98, sub-section 2, footnote 843, sentence 47, line 6, index reference number 14. Which as far as I can tell means Guantanamo prisoners can still play soccer between prayer call.
The only ones who know what they believe are the one's who want to convert us or behead us.
