real horrorshow

a clockwork orange

"Nobody likes to see violence on the TV screens. Nobody wants to see little children blown up when a U.S. soldier is trying to give them candy. Nobody likes to see innocent women die at the hands of suicide bombers. It breaks our heart." -- George W. Bush, "President Bush Discusses Global War on Terror" 4.6.06

"It's funny how the colours of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen."-- Alex, A Clockwork Orange (1971)

Well met, wg. Another beast for your hobbyhorse (pony?) collection:

VARGAS: When you look back on those days immediately following when Katrina struck, what moment do you think was the moment that you realized that the government was failing, especially the people of New Orleans?

BUSH: When I saw TV reporters interviewing people who were screaming for help. It looked — the scenes looked chaotic and desperate. And I realized that our government was — could have done a better job of comforting people.

And we all remember he was too busy (or sleepy) to watch those TV reports live. He rented the video from staff.

There were two copies and I tried to erase one of them and seem to have erased both. Not sure if I can retrieve it. Talk about memory hole!

I might try to put an abbreviated version up later tho.
