The Red Wings got swept by the Ducks!

I wanted to write that in all caps. It's like Hell Freezing Over. Last year's Cup winners swept in the first round by the DUCKS seems incredible. Takes my breath away. Of course, I haven't been following the Ducks' season at all. But wow.

Of all the things I don't understand about human nature...

... why anyone ANYONE would loot or destroy a museum or library is just completely and totally beyond me. Even with mob mentalities or whatever the fuck, it just... confounds me.

Hearing that the seven POWs that were rescued Sunday decided that they wanted to stay together, as they'd been through so much together, until they were home, just made me cry. Not totally sure why, but maybe it's just the concept of human relationships that are that strong.

I've been kind of half following, mostly approving of bryant's coverage of the war and his take on it is pretty close to mine. He's a bit more acerbic than I am, but that's good. John and I have been watching about an hour's worth of coverage every evening, even as most people turn away from overload. We still do, even with the hockey playoffs going on.

Jet calls hockey "Owie Game." *giggles* He has Truth.
