First, A Correction

Back in July, I said that Scientologist Bodhi Elfman was composer Danny Elfman's brother. I am so glad an eagle-eyed reader caught the mistake. I really like Danny Elfman's music and it makes me happy to say that Bodhi Elfman is not nearly so close a relative to Danny Elfman as I had thought. Bodhi is Danny's nephew. Whew! Keep those Scientologists at arms-length, I say. Or better yet, boot them out of the family altogether. But Onto Things That Matter Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was seen buying shoes at Ferragamo on 5th Avenue in New York yesterday and checking out the new collections on Seventh Avenue. Plus she got in some tennis practice sessions with Monica Seles. And Prez Bush will do a fly-over of New Orleans today. God forbid either of them should dirty their hands or feet with the reality of what the Bush administration policies have wrought. George W. Bush is an insane sociopath of course. But what is Rice's excuse? She's buying shoes and playing tennis while people of her own race are being murdered, raped, and die from neglect because she and the neocons used federal money on an unnecessary war of aggression in Iraq rather than fix dire problems at home. And the bottom line is: They knew. George W. Bush, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and everyone in top jobs in the White House and Pentagon knew an attack on the World Trade Center was imminent. They knew there were no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. They knew Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks on the WTC. They knew Iraq did not try to buy uranium in Africa. They knew the levees in New Orleans would burst if a Category 5 Hurricane hit the Gulf. They knew 100,000 people had no way to get out if the levees burst. They knew that the National Guard could not be deployed to avert civil unrest in the US because too many National Guardsmen had been sent to Iraq. They knew. And nothing they say or do can ever change the fact that now the whole world knows THEY KNEW.
