oh the irony...

when i heard that first lady Laura Bush has skin cancer, my first impulse was to kinda laugh obnoxiously at what i perceived as a burning case of irony:

the wife of our unequaled president, George Bush --whose environmental policies have proven exceedingly and increasingly laughable and ignorant, delusional, noncomittal, ineffective, and damningly negligent-- is apparently suffering one of the symptoms indicative of the impending apocalypse: squamous cell carcinoma, the 2nd most common form of skin cancer.

the skin cancer is one of many manifest risks of depleting ozone, a direct result of our government's inability to acknowledge harmful and PREVENTABLE pollution as a cause of environmental problems, and its inability to prioritize environmental protection (rather than big oil).

you'd think this personal event would make the deteriorating ozone more salient to our boy George (especially since his recent trip to the doc to get 4 sun-induced lesions removed from his face).

but sadly, the administration's wind-up monkey marches on...

hey, at least we can enjoy 50+ degree weather in december...?

p.s. for fun, watch this (below). my favorite part comes at 3:05. "go home and die." wow.

I had a squamous cell cancer removed from my arm two weeks ago. I wish First Lady Laura Bush had revealed hers sooner. It has made me realize that there are far worse things than than the removal of cancerous lessions. I could be married to George Bush as well.

haha. indeed, polymath, there are far worse lots in life than contracting squamous cell cancer.

sadly, there are some cancers that are not as easily gotten rid of, and not as easily explained by science.
