The heavenly body of Jolie has eclipsed most real news stories, but I would like to point out that it’s been two years since Beslan, and the Russian special forces are commemorating the occasion by arresting elderly human rights activists:
Bravo, assholes. Way to go. Grab a terrified, frail old man off the street. THAT’LL show the world how much we’ve learned since those children were slaughtered.
(My mood is slightly off this evening. Perhaps it has something to do with the filth and violence of everyday life, or maybe the fact that tomorrow is Monday and I don’t even get paid until the fifteenth, and we’re almost out of beer)
