How the other side lives

Like everyone else, I've been shocked by the devastation caused by BP's folly and reckless conduct in the Gulf of Mexico, and how the lives of millions of people will be wrecked for keeps. And like lots of others, I haven't really noticed that so many others have had to suck up the same devastation of their lives at the hands of Texaco and Royal Dutch Shell for decades - and did we really care about them?

Ellen Cantarow, writing in Asia Times:

In so many ways, large and small, we keep getting reminded that when we're indifferent to the plight of others - especially when our willful blindness serves to let us profit at their expense - we're asking God to serve us what we prescribe for others. And these prayers are sometimes answered. For our own good, let's learn to pray differently, both in word and deed!

Some people are so confused and mixed up they believe their own lies.
