Pessimistic ...

Yesterday's bombings in Spain have made me feel nothing but pessimism. Since I don't want to be mistaken for someone who is calling on the state, whether it be US or Spain, to mount an equally bloodthirsty response, I'm going to mostly just say nothing ... except to note that in contrast to the response of the world after the events of 9/11, I've yet to run into many people who appear to give a shit. I suppose some of them are thinking "Hmmm, Spain, Spain ... I've heard of that place ... somewhere in Europe, maybe?" The exception would be people like one of Mark's co-workers, who was almost gleeful at the thought that this might propel more people to support Bush.
