My views of the Iraqi invasion have been vomited upon this blog in the past. And of late, politics have been limited to fringe infestations on otherwise happy-go-gey-scribblings. But this morning, the depression boiled inward and I find myself curling over a knotted, sickened stomach.

fuck us all. each, every, one of us.
