Taking Advantage

Dave, oblivious as ever. Good thing Steve's there to call it how he sees it.

Today's news is still saturated with Joe Wilson's outburst during Obama's speech, Obama's address to school kids, and the fact that it's the eighth anniversary of 9/11.

Eight years. Think of that. Many of us can vividly remember the events of 9/11, and yet there are high school children out there that have little to no recollection of this. Why do I bring this up? Because we're still waging war, occupying, whatever you wish to call it, but we're still flexing military power on something that diplomatic power could have, and SHOULD have, resolved ages ago.

Think about that. Many of us, myself included, tend to forget that we're still sending our young men and women to the Middle East for something that many of us don't even think about, for something that the newest generation of Americans can't even recollect. Sooner or later, we have to ask ourselves, "what are we still doing over there?" I have to believe that the current powers that be are at least asking, "how do we end this?" I have to believe that, otherwise my growing cynical side will find a way to sour my entire outlook for our futures. My circle of friends doesn't need another cynic... Joel and Dee fill those roles quite well (I <3 U 2).

Enjoy the strip.

Joel walked into my office to say:

"I take offense to your post. I am not a cynic, I'm a skeptic, there's a difference".

I felt that he felt that you should know that. Why he didn't post that himself is beyond me.

Joel = Cynic + Skeptic.
