"A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own. – H.G. Wells (1866-1946)"

Now, I'm not anti-war (so don't go there). And since I don't have cable I won't be able to watch the Glenn Beck documentary tonight, so... hopefully H.G. Wells doesn't belong in the George Bernard Shaw ranks!! I'm not a diehard GB fan either (so don't go there). I DO really like the new Glenn Beck theme music which apparently is Muse per people in the know. I wouldn't mind putting the GB intro up but I can't find it without the talk-over. "Search for answers, everywhere, we will be the key. We must remember who we are." (Doom-doom-doom-doom-WHISH!) Now I'm not a Muse fan either (so don't go there). But I really like this song (The United States of Eurasia), not necessarily for the words (so don't go there either!) as the musicality of the Queen/LofA/Chopin artistic imitation.

And whilst we're at it, speaking of artistic, when you have time, turn off the playlist and take a look at this youtube clip. It's the Ukraine's version of "You've Got Talent" and she won the top prize. She depicts The Great Patriot War which purportedly resulted in the death of about one in four of the 42 million Ukraine population. That's 6.5X the population of Utah, 5.3X Houston city, 4.4X Las Vegas metro. I snoped it: nothing. Looking it up in Wikipedia it fits within the WW II military conflict in Eastern Europe. Adding the Holocaust alone, add 11MM. Altogether perhaps 70MM. At the end she writes, "You are always near." Are you one of the over 11MM who have seen it?
