We've moved past the terrorist stuff here, which is good. However, I
suggest that you check out The Onion web site: http://www.theonion.com/

For those who don't know, "The Onion" is a hilarious spoof newspaper which
also has an online presence. Patterned after USA Today, The Onion is
sarcastic, crude, irreverent, iconoclastic, and funnier than anything
you've ever seen in your life.

This week's issue deals with the terrorist hijackings. I have to say that
I haven't laughed so hard since well before September 11th. I feel a lot
better now too. What they have to offer will not be for everyone, and many
will find it incredibly offensive. However, gallows humor has always had a
place in tragedy and I for one appreciate what they're trying to do. If
you feel ready to release some emotion, then by all means go check it out.
It's better than a bucket full of Man-Made Meteorites!

...But if it offends you, don't say you weren't warned.
