I'M SO GLAD THIS ISN'T PAKISTAN.

The year is winding down, and the world is still one crazy f**king place:

- Pakistan is the only Islamic state with a nuclear arsenal. And Washington has private concerns about the security of those weapons. Those worries will intensify in the wake of Benazir Bhutto's assassination. An arms control expert says one thing is certain: It is "not a good idea to have 70 nuclear weapons in the hands of a country that is falling apart."

Yeah, isn't that comforting? And we here in the United States have a major presidential election coming up too; would terrorists somehow decide to strike us too? Don't kid yourselves, Iraq still sucks, and there are car bombs/terrorists going off there all the time. I dunno where we're headed, to be honest, or what horrors to expect anymore.

On a lighter note, the USPS has issued a stamp in honor of Bette Davis' 100th birthday. Ah yes, good ole' Baby Jane herself. It's a cool stamp dontcha think?

I was in a traffic jam not too long ago, and this song popped up on my iPod and kept me company whilst stuck on the road, and boy what a song this is! A genius artist, and NO he wasn't once a Beatle either, but surely inspired by them:

I'm not sure Pakistan is falling apart, but there will be some major problems coming up. With everything happening in Turkey and Iraq and Afghanistan, things will soon explode.

Elton used to write terrific songs. His talent has seemed to wane a little though.
