The Facts...as they stand January 22, 2008

Goodday folks.  To borrow from a mentor...as far as I know, my name is still Turbozo, and I do the news.  It has been my blood stained battle for the better part of a decade now to deal with facts and unmitigated truth.  Though often dosed in the perceptions of a warped and suspended brain, the facts are unflappably tangible and able to seen even from great distances where the sun mangles both pupil and retna. 

The facts of today are not the same as those of yesteryear.  Todays truth's are more rugged and harder to swallow without first beating your dog or taking multi side effect enducing pharmaceuticals in mass.  No longer is an ice cold gulp from the information troph sufficient to get factual evidence of the world you live in.  More and more the brass tacks of it all are burried a few hundred feet deep, often in rubble or shredded documents. 

So imagine my joy when I came out of a day dream listening to REM sing "Its the End of the World as We Know it, and I Feel Fine" and realized that the general populous of the United States are not moronic beyond all saving, that they are not so damn far from the truth that any mention of it binds their guts and groins...they simply don't care.  I'll say it again so as that the gravity of the scenario catches you, dear reader, broadside. Its the End of the World as We Know It, and They Feel Fine.  Currently (as within 4 minutes from the time you read this) a man woman or child will die as a result of the Iraq War.  Yet, check your major news outlets...they are debating the hell out Oscar Nominations...cheering or jeering a 3/4 percent rate cut, or pontificating on the lambasting prowess of Simon from American Idol. 

The average intelligent, well adjusted, educated and quasi successful American adult has carved out an island so distinct for themselves that any of the issues that will have to faced in the future (literally beyond 10 minutes aways) are filtered out, easily explained or confronted with the compacency of a distracted toddler at play.  So I will lay out a few facts for your consumption, some mild..some alarming even by the standards of a infomongering, truth addict with singed synapes and fried nerve endings.
