Just a random headline from this morning's paper. It's such an abomination to talk about a war as "popular" or "unpopular". For fuck's sake. Just or unjust, horrible or as un-evil as possible.... WAR.... not the contest for Homecoming Queen. As if the war itself or the substance of it or reason for it could be summed up into it being popular.
Many people my age or a bit older grew up watching war atrocities on tv. I don't watch tv and don't know what people are seeing. I should at least be checking cnn. What are the images or lack of them, what are the stupidities or cowardices of reporting, that make it even remotely possible that a war could be "popular"?
I know, the point of the headline is to let us all know that we're not as stupid as the government thought we were. It's just so fucked up.
