The Rock and Roll Soldiers are now shilling for Verizon.
Crazy stuff. Ah well, I guess you can't be that rockin' and that cute without the fat cats coming around and promising to make all your dreams come true.
In other news, I'm not really surprised that they haven't found a "mastermind" behind the London bombings yet. I actually wonder if these kids (and they were kids- from the suburbs) acted alone out of much the same kind of anger and resentment that fuel such events as Columbine.
I have to wonder what consitutes a "terror cell." Is it just that a couple of kids had had enough of Britain's passive aggressive racism, and were impressed enough by the ideologies of extremism to think that they could make a real change in the world by blowing people up?
The Coultergeist would call me a traitor, she'd say I have sympathy for the devil here, but there is a vicious cycle at work. The more anger the non-Muslim world directs toward Muslims, the more likely it is that the odd extremist will act out. The more the extremists act out, the more anger is created against them. Which is why a "War on Terror" is like a kerosene-filled fire extinguisher.
