Well, I watched the second installment of Inside 9/11 and it was really good. I have to say I am glad I invested 4 hours on this documentary. Brought back all the memories of that God forsaken day. I fear we as Americans are beginning to be a little too relaxed about the seriousness of our safety. We must never forget.
I think Pat Robertson has gone off the edge this time. He is advocating the assassination of Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela. Yee Gods. I thought religious leaders worked for peaceful solutions to craziness in the world. Yes, Chavez takes great pride in being the protege of Fidel Castro and we do get a portion of our oil supply from Venezuela, but come on. Let's take a deep breath, shall we?!
My hubby, son and I lived briefly in Venezuela in the early 90's. Hubby works throughout the world in the evil oil biz so it was a completely normal kind of gig for him to accept. The only thing making it an out of the ordinary experience was that our son and I would go with him and we would live there. So off we went. Our son was the tender age of 16 months. It was an interesting/horrible experience for this spoiled American woman! Apparently I don't do very well in third world countries! I want electricity, clean water and non uzi-toting policemen. Demanding, I know. We lived in a multi-story apartment bldg and had nice neighbors but I don't care for electricity going out for unknown reasons whenever it felt like it. It was all surreal on many levels but we met some good people and my eyes were opened to many new experiences.
God Bless America!
