And the band played on

It's getting to be a little mind-numbing: Suicide bombings that kill scores of people, while the survivors condemn Bush's "peace"; the joke also known as the Republican-lead US House of Representatives engaging in GOP gutter politics, better known as when all else fails accuse your opponent of treason.

On the home front, the moral power of religion is on full display; Americans can feel safe in the streets and in their homes and compassion is the watchword as the holidays begin.

Meanwhile, George Bush and Dick Cheney insist that they have been and always been right.

Perhaps it's only right and proper that one TV network is using this sweeps weekend to re-create a fictional maritime disaster. But in the real world, the Titanic is going down and the band is still playing the stale tune that got us in this mess in the first place.
