Biting the Bullet
Question: The Globe-Guardian has sunk to a yet another new low with its May
FutureNews stories. Where's your humanity? Have you no sympathy for the family and
friends of those who were killed in the Columbine High School shootings? (Maybe Mass Murderer Sparks Media Frenzy, Higgins Graduates without Incident)
AnswerMan: A mass media mania question. Bad people will always kill people --
with guns, knives, candlestick holders or whatever other weapons happen to be available.
In the face of that reality, we are only suggesting that a little media restraint in
covering such incidents as the Colorado student shootings might do more to prevent future
such tragedies than gun control. It goes to motivation, your honor.
Q: How dare you trivialize the efforts of our brave boys in Yugoslavia with
your cheap rip-off of a "Star Wars" scene? (Fighter
A: A forceful question. The Globe-Guardian has difficulty buying the
proposition that bombing a country back into the Stone Age is an acceptable route to
peace. When you consider the growing list of non-military targets, including refugee
trains, hospitals and the Chinese embassy, which have hit by NATO weapons, the real
question becomes: How did chimpanzees gain control of this operation? On the charge of
committing a Star Wars rip-off, we plead seduction by the Dark Side.
Another Other Woman
Q: I think your QuestionMan interview with the "Other Woman" was
grossly unfair. Doesn't the U.S. Constitution guarantee "pursuit of happiness"?
(The Other Woman)
A: A less than scholarly question. No, you're thinking of the U.S. Declaration
of Independence. Among purposes expressed by the Constitution is "preserving domestic
tranquility." Now, how, exactly, has the "Other Woman" contributed to
attaining that objective?
Charge of the Card Brigade
Q: What was the point of your uranium credit card story in the last "Quick
Takes? (HEAVY METAL CHARGE CARDS)
A: A highly charged question. No point, other than a comment on how fiercely
silly credit card company competition has become. Watch your mailbox for
"pre-approved offers" on the new Plutonium Card.
