DIDGE - The View From Down Under

An Aussie’s ridgy-didge view of world affairs and popular culture.

I’d have updated by now…

… if it wasn’t for the 24-hour Simpsons marathon currently running on FOX8.

Though I did manage to drag myself away from it to see a little of Bush’s third question and answer session with normal, everyday Americans*.

I caught one woman saying that her husband brought back a DVD from Iraq showing hours and hours of good things happening there. She said if only these wondrous things were shown by the evil media then not one bad word would be said about the invasion of Iraq. Not one! Well, maybe the people in Iraq who’ve had loved ones killed might still be pissed, but they don't count.

See, if footage of soldiers painting fences and giving sweets to children were shown on TV all the time then stories such as this one: 42 killed in Iraq, 14 more bodies found wouldn’t make anyone think that the whole invasion thing was a bad idea. Not anyone!

Oh, and by the way, YVAN EHT NIOJ!!!
