Skip the Great Public Piety

NPR insults us again, broadcasting at the top of each hour and during ATC the Occupant's praise of those for whose deaths he is responsible. Enough to make any decent person sick. Even Garrison Keillor can call a spade a spade, noting in his essay "
On Memorial Day we'll hear about men who gave their lives for their country, but many lives were not given, they were taken, and taken stupidly and carelessly. And there has been great public piety about those men and their "sacrifice" on the part of politicians who blithely sacrificed them."
If NPR and the rest of the corporate media had done half their job, the only speech Bush would be giving would be his final statement before being sentenced in in a federal court or The Hague.
BTW, it's interesting to note the disappearance of Joe Galloway, who used to be a regular on NPR.

Got that right. But Rome wasn't built in a day, and ever so gradually (and even from sources outside this one) NoPR's gettin' the whoopin' it so deserves. Go MYT!

As Bertolt Brecht said:

«There are men who struggle for a day and they are good. There are men who struggle for a year and they are better. There are men who struggle many years, and they are better still. But there are those who struggle all their lives: These are the indispensable ones»
