<jonathan> Far be it from me to downplay what's been going on about the war in Iraq, about the killer flu in our own shores, but there's only so much you can do, besides pray. I think practicality has to be the word for the day.How much can you do, what can you say? when it's time to go, it's time to go, no two ways about it.
Having said that, my sympathy goes to the families of those affected by both.

I ran into a cabbie yesterday, a malay/muslim cabbie who denounced the war in Iraq as having NOTHING to do with islam, and also basically said that OBL is a crock of shit.It's refreshing to hear someone on that side seem to see the same view as you do, even though you are on the outside looking in.

I also heard from someone about how a specialist in the Iraqi culture said on TV that Saddam was not a muslim, never was and he wondered why muslims are outraged about him coming under attack. I also think therefore that the indo's could be very badly misled. When you are living in a country where only a fourth of the population have actual jobs, boredom is like dry grass, catching fire at the tiniest spark. All over the world, psychologists have noted that riots and stuff like that abound from countries with low job vacancies as well as a few extreme ideas. this was something noted early in the 80s, and told to me by(of all people) an indonesian when I was in Jogjakarta in 93.
He himself told me that the young men of Indo are largely bored and that they will latch on to the slightest unusual idea.How do you explain that to a bunch of guys in masks and Osama/Che Guevera T-shirts without getting mauled?

Just watched Forrest Gump on HBO. Think if I ever start another emo band, it'll be called "Jenny and Me". The scene where he buries her at the foot of their tree gets me every time.

<jonathan> THIS FORM OF MARTYRSHIP WENT TO MARKET


I saw your blog yesterday.

I felt hurt. I couldn't believe you felt that way.

Being friends for many years and going through crap after a long time means nothing to you.Why say I that?
You obviously don't trust me, nor the rest of us who are concerned, even after we make it clear that your opinion matters.
If you did, you'd tell us the truth instead of relying on someone else to deliver bad news.
Instead you avoid us, as if we have been the ones causing your distress. Even if we had, why didn't you tell us?
I, for one believe in apologies. I, for one believe in learning to accept responsibility.I, for one, believe in acknowledging the one who created me.
I BELIEVE IN THINGS NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT IN THE EYES OF THOSE AROUND ME.
Was that so hard for me to say?
I can see your history repeating itself; in your previous other circle, in another time, you confided in us and said, "I will deliver my ultimatium soon".
You never did.
You were only freed because they made their own decision not to continue.
You never learnt how to say 'no' and we tolerated it, thinking you would learn to someday.
You tell everyone that you've matured. You tell everyone that you are grown-up now.
You still continue being led by the wind like a feather blown by a breeze, until it blows you into pieces like an up-turned umbrella.
We would have supported you whichever way you would choose, even if it meant that we would not work together.
I would preserve a friendship and lose a working relationship.I believe the others would, too.
You somehow don't believe us, I think.
I think that in avoiding us, you think you will be happy.
I think you believe that if you don't bring it up, and nothing else brings it up, the problem will disappear like something David Blane will do, that the issue will do a Houdini.
*POOF*.
Guess what?
Still there.
I think that you believe you have passed a level where your maturity has surpassed us. That you 'can handle it' now, and that if you leave it alone, really leave it alone, you will be happy for the rest of your life.
You think us to be like the tyrants that only denied everyone else, like Napoleon the pig, like Squealer,his cohort, while you continue like a martyr, a heroic horse named Boxer, that you are as wise as a Donkey named Benjamin, but that you remain silent.
I tell you, you are deceived. But you will never believe me, because you don't want to. You will never know this because I cannot tell you, you are avoiding me and those who really want to help.

You will continue this way, unhappy the rest of your life because you never learned responsibility and cleaning up a mess left half done.

You never learned to say 'no'.

Have a good life ahead. I hope it works out. </jonathan> <!--9:33 AM-->
