I was on a plane this weekend from Boston to San Francisco and, as I often do when I fly long distances, I pondered this bit by the comedian Louis C.K.:
Mr. K is right; we really take too much for granted. Here are some other things I realized we take for granted:
|The above image came up when I googled "Childbirth Horror."|
|Of course, I have an excuse to post this picture.|
And, not to diminish the crimes at Abu Ghraib, but King Richard the Lionhearted was much worse to his prisoners.
|I have nothing funny to say here.|
Lionheart executed 2,700 Muslim prisoners, many of them women and children, because he thought they might become a burden. Kinda makes you wish for John, doesn’t it?
|Of course, he made a terrible lion.|
