Two acquaintances posted a bulletin board message containing some of the most ignorant stuff I’ve ever heard said about the war in Iraq and the mistreatment of Iraqi POWs. I took half an hour to write a lengthy reply to their post, which I’m sure will accomplish nothing in terms of opening up their minds. I can’t really say why I did it. Maybe it was a relapse of my old usenet addiction.
I probably should have just sent them a link to Inside the Monkeysphere.
