still trying to get my work done, while scary thoughts run through my head. my hands are shaking & cold, my stomach is churning. (cramps not helping.)

news reports, carried by co-workers & metafilter, say that palestinians are dancing in the streets. I am trying not to be zenophobic, not to be racist, but it’s hard. it’s going to be hard for our leaders to avoid doing something really, really stupid. because I think bombing whoever into glass/stone age would be stupid. call me crazy, but I fear it would only make things worse.

but GWB is our president, so stupidity is unlikely to be avoided.
