Haha good one Sean!
Jams,thank you. Perhaps not good, but fitting. Unfortunately. Well, Mr. Bugliosi made some bucks, but where is the district attorney having the guts? ...
An excellent punchline, Sean, but a regrettable one.
I'm lending you a book to put under The Trial. From Michael Wood: In Search of the Dark Ages.And here to confirm the facts.Adding an odious but true comparaison.My heart is so heavy for my many American friends. I'm weeping...Sadly things are not getting any better.
Stan,thank you. Yes, it's a pity I could come to think of this punchline. Did I write pity? A shame it is!Claude,touché!That's why I can get furious: If some - unfortunately too few - criminals responsible for torture, after all, are being called to account (in Cambdia, Liberia, Yugoslavia): why are the like of Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush not behind bars, yet?! And mind you: The most wonderful democracy on this planet enjoys to let even innocent people enjoy what they call justice.Thus, again: Why - in this context - are evil members of homo insapiens like Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush and their henchmen still alive?Just a question.
USA is an Empire, not a Democracy. It's a political continuity. A little bit might change from one party to another, one election to another. Not much. Just enough empty promises to get in. Only a revolution would clear up the desk, and clean the country. I can't photograph my books, but here's how I see the American Story on my bookshelves *(writers are below):A BASIC HISTORY OF USATHE PROMISETERRE DES HOMMESA CHOICE OF FUTURESCIVILIZATION ON TRIALLOST HORIZONLES MISÉRABLESEVERYMAN FOR HIMSELFVOL DE NUITBONJOUR TRISTESSEIS ANYONE THERE?Sad isn't it?

D'accord, Claude,alone: a revolution wouldn't necessarily change much, per se. I do like your story, though.
