"This is a war for the soul of Islam."

Forgive me for any repetition...

But I have officially reached the point in my life where I don't know what to do. Had I been born ten or fifteen years later, I might still have some fight left.

As it stands, I simply have no idea what to suggest to address, nor reasons why people decide that wanton violence will solve their aims.

Or maybe it's just too close right now.

My point of view on "terrorism" has been that if you get all these people willing to commit suicide in order to strike out at seemingly larger groups political and economic power, they would suddenly stop being so willing to strap on explosives with deadman's triggers...

And I imagine, if I take enough deep breaths, I would say the same about whoever is involved in these most recent attacks...

But there's something about it that seems too burdensome to ponder. Much like 9/11, I am avoiding news sources because I assume I am going to hear more about it.

And news hear more about all of the ridiculous posturing that will take place in its name that really has nothing to do with it.

I will begin to think that the political prattling is all show, subterfuge and manipulation,

but I then start thinking that maybe the people responsible for the deceit actually believe it...and I can't tell which prospect is more dire.

But I have reached that point in my life where I realize why my parents generations tended to not feel like dealing with it when I was younger,

because I just don't feel like dealing with it now.

Remind me to say something later about the lingering effects of global colonialism and the difference between Buddhist immolation and radical middle eastern self-detonation.

I pray he never gets popular so I can keep liking him.

A couple weeks ago I turned down an audition because the character seemed....stereotypical,

and a job because it was below rate,

and I just emailed my manager that I'm not interested in doing a soft drink commercial and included why.

I should probably find a new job.

Is there something I can do where I get paid to be self-righteous?
