Well, the baby’s cryin’,
and momma needs a break,
he’s always so hungry,
he wants all that he can take,
We try to keep him happy,
try to make him smile,
but the baby he’s so hungry,
it hasn’t happened in a while…
I caught a bit of the president’s interviews with the two Arabic networks. He promised “openness”. It seems so funny that it gets promised only AFTER something happened. The president and vice-president haven’t exactly been models of “openness” in a lot of their dealings.

Next thought: I was discussing with Laureen the idea that where strictness and regulation go, violence usually follows. This is not just true of many “islamic” uprisings, but also true of the extremely conservative religious groups in the U.S. (such as the ones who advocate killing abortion providers.) Does intolerance always lead to violence?
