Respites

A douchebag geek hippie responds

(via Andrew Sullivan)

Being a geek, I will close this by invoking the Silmarillion: Morgoth destroyed the Two Trees and provoked the Noldor into atrocities and self-destruction. Yet even after he was thrust through the Door of Night and into the Timeless Void, the seeds of evil that he planted remained to bear dark fruit until the end of days. Likewise with Bin Laden: He didn’t start US imperialism, but he did light the fuse for a very ugly chapter in the history of US imperialism, a chapter that will continue even after his death.

Yes, he has a ponytail.
