Ordinariness
An explosion’s echo.
Smokey mushrooms in the sky.
The smell of burning.
A shout.
An alarm.
People gathering in a mass.
Women crying.
Babies whining.
The storm after the silence.
A vision of the end of days.
Broken shouts of mothers at their children.
Tears of friends falling on fresh graves.
Fifteen seconds of life.
The wail of an ambulance cutting through the crowd
Freezes, threatens, and silences all.
Eyes suffering from what they see.
A heart shot through.
A child hurt.
Color Red!” the siren shouts, the color of blood.
A direct hit,
Hurts, chokes
the heart.
Prayer,
A shout,
A warning,
Eyes tearing
Fifteen seconds
Tzeva adom! Color red!
Fifteen seconds to count backwards
To life or death.

From Monkey in the Middle:

The people of Sderot have endured 8 years of daily attacks from Gaza. The return of Gaza to the Palestinians didn’t stop the attacks (as they were promised by President Bush and the UN), they escalated their attacks. Even during this so-called truce, the rockets fall daily.

Oh, Canada!

$290million and no change!

Canada’s third election in four years is over – except for the weeping and wailing. The “winners” have been congratulated and the “losers” have given gracious concession speeches (sometimes!)

Really, though, the BIG loser from this election is Canada. Despite over $290 million spent on this 40th election – that saw the 10th minority government in Canada’s history elected – voter turnout was the lowest in the nation’s history. That is a sad commentary. Of course, many streeter interviews were conducted with “average” Canadians as to why they didn’t vote, and the prevailing reason seemed to be: “Why bother?” Why, indeed. Stephen Harper and his Conservatives had been waging a negative ad campaign on a newly-minted leader, Stephane Dion of the Liberal party, from the moment he was chosen as leader, way before any election was called. …

A note from Radarsite: Smothered under the enormous accumulative weight of these ongoing and unresolved major scandals how can Barack Obama survive? Given the number and the severity of these charges against him, any one of which would have been sufficient grounds for immediate withdrawal for any other presidential candidate in our history, how could Barack Obama even dare to contemplate running for President of the United States of America? And finally, despite the best efforts of a shamefully biased MSM and of his fanatical legions of passionate supporters to dampen the fires of public outrage, despite the enormous damage already done to his shady character and questionable credibility, the biggest question remains:

Can Obama still win?
