Meet the Malarians

BushCo are hosting a summit on Malaria in December.

I wonder if Bush is planning on sending troops to Malaria?

Couldn’t help the comical interlude; its right up there with the joke about the ‘Brazillions’ (“how much is a brazillion”?) :)

Quip aside, we know that malaria is a very serious global disease indeed, killing 3000 children every day, and it is of course preventable.

    Sending troops to Malaria? :) :) Maybe not, new congress…

    Just as well, although many of the Republidemocrats are reputed to be of the same species. Nevertheless, the Democrats might misunderestimate (do not adjust your screen, this is a Bushism) the Decider’s resolve :)

    Feel free to delete this post, you are discussing serious matters, but I couldn’t resist to suggest to have a look at “Wordify” in amusements

    Thanks Homeyra, I love his use of flash and I appreciate the link. And your comments, whether on serious matters or humorous, are welcome any time :)

    I’ll put Naj on my blogroll as well. I’m becoming more Persianised as we speak ;)

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
