Lileks is no fun today. His screed is about how the kids today don't know what they're rebelling against, and how rappers don't use good grammar or spelling, and how the teevee has too many cuss words on it. It's like watching an old man die.

Instead, how about this? It seems Sudanese security forces beat the shit out of some of Condi Rice's entourage and a couple of reporters while she was paying a state visit. Aside from the meta-comedy involved (the US figuratively bullies the world, so the world literally bullies US citizens) and the accompanying photo of Sec. Rice with her default "someday I will piss on all your corpses, tiny fools" look, I think it's funny that she's so upset that they beat up some reporters, while back at home, the administration she represents is trying to make it easier to send reporters to jail. It takes different strokes to move the world, yes it does.
