Groundhog Day [Feb. 2nd, 2005|08:21 pm]
We Are The Universitards

[mood |energeticenergetic]
[music |52metro - "lockdown"]

With much speculation to the concept of groundhog day, I pose these questions:

If the groundhog sees his shadow (and he did too, rats!) then that meant that winter weather will last longer... for the groundhog to see his shadow, there must be a sufficient amount of sunlight present, meaning that the weather is getting nicer... so why then, does it mean more winter?

should we really base our hopes of the future on the paranoia of a small fuzzy woodland creature?

do you believe that what the groundhog's actions predict are true?

i read somewhere that when the shadow is seen, it means that because the weather is good now (when he sees his shadow), the only inevitable reason, is that it will get worse and bad before spring. personally, i don't think it could get worse... up here in boston we just received about 2 feet of snow... anyway, i was just wondering about your thoughts on the subject of the groundhog and his shadow.

It's time to party.

As the families of bomb-flattened Fallujah huddle in make-shift refugee camps, drinking from sewage-filled streams, Iraqi policy mastermind Paul Wolfowitz fastens the last stud into his starched collar.

As the Iraq Survey Group ends its search for WMD, concluding that there was no imminent mushroom cloud or even a smoking gun, Condi Rice draws herself a hot bath.

As Sgt. Kevin Benderman, an Army mechanic with nine years of service, refuses a second deployment to Iraq, saying, "You just don't know how bad it is," Colin Powell pours himself a drink.

As Specialist Charles A. Graner, miscreant and major-domo of Abu Ghraib, shuffles off to prison, Donald Rumsfeld straightens the black tie of his tux.

As the 9/11 widow tucks her children into bed, wondering why the recommendations made in "The 9/11 Commission Report" weren't implemented, Tom Ridge tightens his cummerbund.

As prisoners charged with no crimes, and given no recourse, languish in the hellhole of Guantanamo Bay, torture apologist Alberto Gonzales clicks his cufflinks into place.

As Dan Rather retires in disgrace over forged documents, former CIA Director George Tenet, proponent of forged documents about Iraq's nonexistent nuclear program, adjusts the Medal of Freedom around his neck.

As the working mother in Chicago wonders how to keep her child from being left behind now that her special-ed program has been cut, Armstrong Williams polishes his shoes.

As Valerie Plame walks away from a distinguished career as a CIA "operative," destroyed when her identity was revealed by columnist Robert Novak, Mr. Novak walks to his limo.

As Osama bin Laden chuckles in his cave to see America's fortunes sink in the morass of Iraq and as fresh recruits to his cause multiply like flies, Dick Cheney pops the cork on a bottle of Dom Perignon.

As America's trade gap surges and the red ink in the national debt bleeds to a record level, Treasury Secretary Paul Snow finishes shaving and dabs at a spot of blood on his chin.

As the Republican Congress gets ready to underfund everything from Head Start to veterans' benefits, Speaker Dennis Hastert checks his profile in the mirror.

As Pfc. Francis Obaji, oldest son of an immigrant Nigerian family, is zipped into a body bag for the sad journey home, Laura Bush zips up her Oscar de la Renta gown.

And as his corporate pals slide their millions across the table to dance at his ball, forgetting for a moment the bottom line that forces them to ship jobs overseas, George W. Bush pulls on his snakeskin boots.

Susan Lenfestey is a Minneapolis writer.

We Are The Universitards
Is television an excape from the real world, masking any real facts or human emotions, or is it a window into the entire world, or universe, for us to explore?
