Whatever floats your boat...
First off Kirb is still with us. He has done extremely well, but I the past couple days his lymph nodes in his neck are much larger... I suspect this is a sign that the disease is progressing rapidly. He still goes on walks, eats vigorously chases hawks out of the yard and tries to be normal around the rest of the pack.... but I know the disease is catching up with him, and this time I don't think I can alleviate some of the discomfort. We shall see. He had a very excellent week up until the day before yesterday. I am grateful for every day there is a sparkle in his eye and a joy to be alive.
Regarding the title of the blog.
Now, I was just pondering something about a 60 minutes sound byte from the President. I am not taking any stance or anything, but rather just trying to understand the logic of a logical man. This is a President that appears to be thoughtful and objective on issues before acting. At one point he was so concerned about justice he was suggesting that the Guantanamo detainees receive a Civilian Trial. I know he reversed that recently to Military Trials but left the door open for Civilian trials. Okay Justice is not as black and white as it seemed to be earlier. That may just be a sign that more facts presented themselves to the President. Civilian trials.. then military trials must be done, trials must be done..... Yet he chooses to state that when Osama was shot unarmed in a bedroom (although I hear there was a weapon in the room) that "Justice had been done". Would that suggest justice for some of the detainees,like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Guantanamo would mean to just open up their cells and shoot them? I know at one time he pushed for a Civilian Trial in New York for him. I am just not quite able to resolve the logic here.
Perhaps he is suggesting it was the smart thing to do to shoot Osama..That more than likely would be correct.. Using the term Justice is a poor choice of words? However, Presidents often have their words carefully crafted. This just baffles me when I try to figure out how this objectively represents justice in Obama Logic . It sounds to me like give everyone a trial unless the President says a bullet is more appropriate, and that is Justice.
