Dreaming Again of Africa

I have had very vivid dreams of Africa since I was a child. I do not know that I believe in reincarnation, and while I suppose it is possible, there is a fragment of my logic-destroyed and moth eaten soul that does believe I lived there before some how long ago. That, or I have a kindred spirit that shares these dreams with me and lives somewhere close to the middle of the continent and occaisionally dreams about life below the Mason-Dixon.

I'm in a much better mood now, but this piece of news makes me want to cry.

Back on Dec. 28, before the U.S. had committed more to tsunami relief, their total was $35 million.

But all of Bush's inaugural festivities will reportedly cost $40 million.

All this money ceases to mean anything to me after a while, but I really don't get how $40 million of our hard-earned dollars are going up to glorify this terrible man.

Actually, it wouldn't matter who the president was going to be. This country is a fucking rip-off.
