As I was sitting eating a burger in a Park Slope (Brooklyn) restaurant last night, I overheard the conversation taking place at the table next to me. One man was telling the other two people at his table that he would rather be killed in his car if a bomb went off opposed to from a blast in the subways.
Hearing this conversation made me think of a few things. It made me think of where I would want to be if I had to be blown up by a bomb; and the answer to that is sitting on Dick Cheneyâ€™s lap, for the obvious reasons. It also made me wonder if this man knew that while he was worried about a bomb killing him someday, he was actually being killed right now by Bushâ€™s policies on the environment and health care.
Isnâ€™t it nice to know that the president makes us feel so safe that a conversation like the one I described had to take place? Think about it!
