Questioning: “Is this the same America that decried the Soviet Union and other oppressive states for ‘disappearing’ people?

I love M.C. Escher and immediately found great enjoyment in these Escher-esque drawings.  Be sure to follow the link at the bottom to the second in the series (the third post no longer displays the images).  [also via Biomes Blog]

If you haven’t visited the Hubble telescope’s collection of images, I suggest you do that now.  It is a photographic discussion of the universe in all its splendor and glory.

I agree wholeheartedly: “There can be no doubt that the combatants in the battle between Hezbollah and Israel engulfing southern Lebanon have lost all moral credibility. Both sides are waging a war without any regard for innocent human life, except insofar as it is regard for the public relations problems it causes.”  Both are guilty of war crimes, but then again, so is America.
