You're quite right to look at the kind of language being used about this crime. It is a technical, not an ethical,language. Wendell Berry: “Always the assumption is that we can first set demons at large, and then, somehow, become smart enough to control them. This is not childishness. It is not even ‘human weakness.’ It is a kind of idiocy, but perhaps we will not cope with it and save ourselves until we regain the sense to call it evil.”

What a great post.

I've been very troubled by the yellow journalism that attends the BP oil spill. Reading AP articles, it seems as if BP is a favorite sports team pitted against a particularly truculent opponent, go team.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
