This is usually a somber week. We reflect on the time our government slaughtered its own people at Waco, April 19, 1993. We reflect on the time when a couple of nutballs, with the help of some sympathetic islamists, killed hundreds of innocents in Oklahoma City, April 19, 1995. Now we have the mass-murdering Korean Christ-complex maniac to remember this time every year. What is it about this week?
On the flip side, let’s take a minute for remembering something good. Three years of meat.
To quote De La Soul (who were quoting Schoolhouse Rock…)
Yes it is, it’s the magic number
You may try to subtract it,
but it just won’t go away.
Three times one?
(What is it?)
One, two, three
That’s the magic number…”
You may want us gone, but we still up in the hizzy after three years, biatch.
