tragic irony

Mumbai draws the thoughts and concerns of the whole world (well, those with cable news at least). Just like September 11, many around the world speak of feeling a "moment of unity" against terror. People renew their faith. Innocent tourists and civilians killed by rampaging terrorists bent on nothing less than the destruction of society.

No cause or grievance can justify indiscriminate attacks against civilians.
- UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon


Meanwhile, over in Valley Stream, New York, a crowd of rampaging consumers trampled a Wal-Mart employee to death in order to be the first to get the best deal on stuff they don't need.

Forgive me for pointing out the absurd on a day filled with such dark news.
