Sometimes I do not read books as much as I should. It happens about as often as in my days before a computer entered my life. Now is one of those times. I need to take a trip to a book store soon.
The only newspaper I read regularly is the Daily Racing Form. Besides all the usual bullshitting the Form's regular writers contribute each issue, there is a little corner reserved for two very short general news stories. This past Sunday's Form included this story headlined Missile Strike kills 10 in Pakistan.
At least 10 people and six others were injured in a suspected U.S. missile strike Thursday in Pakistan's tribal region. The attack apparently targeted a religious school operated by a Taliban commander. It took place in an area known to be a haven for al-Qaida and Taliban insurgents.
Which just goes to prove that if you bomb enough countries, sooner or later you will start bombing the right ones.
I do read a lot of shit on my computer. Some of the shit people publish from their homes is fucking good. Mostly though I like to look at pictures of roller derby girls and think of distant places.
