Last night's BBC map showed vast areas of Pakistan affected by an enormous flood. Huge. Debilitating. Outside words even as words like "cholera" or "starving" or "helpless" were voiced over the scene.
In China, clips showed cities and towns inundated, though on a smaller scale ... but still huge to those swept away or simply disappeared like woodsmoke on the evening breeze.
And somewhere in the past -- a month was it? or two? or three? -- was an earthquake that literally decimated Haiti.
Elsewhere in the world, men and women prosecuted one war or another -- shot, hacked, maimed, imprisoned, tortured, bombed, won, lost ....
On a comedy channel, a very funny woman once did a riff on situations that individuals got themselves into and yet clearly deserved the question, "What the fuck is the matter with you!?"
I don't care what flag you're flying ... what the fuck is the matter with you?!
Sure, we can all be dickheads, but do we need to institutionalize/find excellent excuses for the condition?
What the fuck is the matter with you?!
