I cannot believe this

I cannot believe this.  Take a breathe, brace yourself, and click here to see a something you won't believe over at the New Yorker.

This is to help parents teach children about 9/11?  Give me a freakin' break!  A Bin Laden double-tap coloring book?  Where are the lynching coloring books?  Where are the atomic bomb in Japan coloring books?  How about an electric chair coloring book?  I know!  Let's make a coloring book of dragging people down the road behind a truck full of rednecks with rifles, shotguns, beer, and not an IQ point to share among them.  Even better!  Let's have one of Mathew Shepard tied to a fence gate.

This book is NOT about teaching children the events of 9/11.  It's about promoting hate in this already hate-filled world where compassion is a weakness, education is held in distrust, and fear stalks the land as thinly veiled concern, a world in which "Love Thy Neighbor" only counts for the few who are secretly worthy, and "Feed My Sheep" has been supplanted with "Build a Bigger Church."

If this is the best we can do, we do not deserve our place in this world.  We only assist the terrorists as they continue their march unimpeded to our assured destruction.
