Finally gay pride is over and the bulk of loud and obnoxious tourists have either left the city or are in the process of leaving and once again the city belongs to those of us that live here. Prices are back down to normal and the number of loud talking people in white socks, baseball caps and sneakers that refer to a 500 year old building as "neat" is reducing.

Glancing though the headline news off CNN, I was surprised to come across the following information: "Teens whose iPods are full of music with raunchy, sexual lyrics start having sex sooner than those who prefer other songs, a study found." - Hmmmm. Are there any studies that show how preoccupied teenage guys are with sex in the first place? And, to further complicate world matters, Paris Hilton is going celebate (Has she finally swapped 'Lil Kim for Karen Caprenter? Why can't she pull a Greta Garbo and just leave us all alone?) and George Dubya himself is calling for an end to the violence between Lebanon and Israel. Amazing how the very same man who invaded a country based on lies is condemning others for their violence... As Garad would say, "Hello pot? This is kettle...

The term democracy indicates a form of government where all the state's decisions are exercised directly or indirectly by a majority of its citizenry through a fair elective process. When these factors are met a government can be classified as such. I am still searching for words and phrases like "imposed", "shoved upon", "put into power by a foreign government". And then I see that Tony Blair (Paris Hilton, who, when asked about him in an interview said "Who? ... Oh, yeah, he's like your president. I don't know what he looks like." - nice one, girl! - Just goes to show that 300 million dollars doesn't buy a whole lot of brains) said he thinks the Middle East should embrace Western values... I wonder why the rest of the world finds the West so arrogant? I'll be awake all night trying to figure that one out... Or better yet, I'll think about that tomorrow.
