Random Quotes on Our Condition

Just some utterances that struck a chord recently:

"Doesn't it seem sometimes 
that the darkness is winning."

"If a family member is having an emotional breakdown and holding a knife, calling the police is probably just going to get him/her shot. Cops are not counselors. They have only one tool: violence."

"A new state law in Arkansas will result in police collecting saliva during routine traffic stops. This is the latest tool they will be using in fighting the oppressive and unjust War on Drugs."

From the Bradley Manning trial: "Armed military police peering over journalists' shoulders, no Internet access in the remote media room, Army staff frisking everyone for phones -- those weren't the only obstacles for reporters covering the trial. The military also refused to publish key documents the government used to build its closing argument."

It's getting better all the time

I used to get mad at my school
The teachers who taught me weren't cool
You're holding me down, turning me round
Filling me up with your rules

I've got to admit it's getting better
A little better all the time
I have to admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine

Me used to be angry young man
Me hiding me head in the sand
You gave me the word, I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can

I've got to admit it's getting better  (link to the boys singing this little tune)
