The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Brief Observations

Observation #1: There is no difference between "secret vice squads" and "mafia enforcers." And, by whatever name you choose to call them, they run the "Palestinian" territories.

A note stuck to the door of his tiny music shop warned Mohammed al-Shaer several months ago that selling tapes and CDs of popular Arabic music was 'haram,' or forbidden by Islam. Al-Shaer paid no heed until a bomb went off outside his business this week — apparently the work of what Palestinian security officials now suspect may be a secret 'vice squad' of Muslim militants.

Observation #2: All of the "good intentions" in the world and $1.89 still only purchases a Venti Starbucks coffee. And "Good Intentions" plus $12 billion buys a lot of guns. It certainly won't do anything to appease those who hate you. With that in mind, notice the posters of "martyrs" which have been tacked on top of this "Feel Good" art project, along with the "pockmarks" in the poster, which I suspect are also not accidental. (It actually looks like someone had plastered other posters on top, and they had been removed.)

Paved with good intentions, indeed.
