Still - After 2 Days!

Man oh Manischewitz. It's Tuesday and I'm not recovered. What the hell? Good thing I didn't drink, I'd be down for a week!

While I've been otherwise occupied, continuing stories keep rolling on and new stuff pops up.

Wait, he's still running?

Why kids draw monsters was a really good read, including all the comments. Very interesting.

As for Behring, he's an intelligent man who knew exactly what he was doing, all be it from a warped, pyscho mind.

Breivik has to be completely and absolutely insane...I wonder what his pictures of monsters look like...himself likely.

Carrie- When I saw that I thought of you immediately.
I've never understood the insanity plea. You have to be insane to do these things. Which doesn't, IMHO, make you any less guilty than any other planned murderer. Planning of murder makes a big difference.

Lawless- His statements last week showed that he knew what he was doing and that he carefully and quite brilliantly devised the whole thing. He also knew it was wrong, but he wanted to make his mark, and he did. He is a monster.
