SO MUCH TROUBLE IN THE WORLD

Wish You Were Here

My Uncle sent me this picture today. He is standing on the deck of what used to be a million dollar house in Hit, Iraq.



When I see this picture I think:

1) I really hope this amazing guy makes it home safe and sound. He is one of the finest and most honorable people I have ever known.

2) Thanks George Bush ... You enormous piece of crap.

3) Since we are already importing an American style democracy, that might make a great location for a Starbucks. After the war, I am sure people will be dying for a caramel macchiato.

Starbucks is taking over the world!! And make mine a tall mocha frappacuinco please!!
But on a serious note, I hope your uncle is ok. It is so scary to be in a war and really for what purpose are all these people dying?

My brother's picture to me was of him and two friends sunbathing in lawn chairs on the roof of an "undisclosed location" in Baghdad.

We had to laugh at it. He has the whitest arms, while his friends each had tans.
