In two of my recent posts (Enemies in the Heat of Battle, Friends for 60 Years and Bush's reaction to the Johnson beheading), I contrasted Bush's outrage regarding the Johnson beheading with his apparent lack of outrage regarding our abuse of prisoners.

This morning I heard the first installment of Scott Carrier's report on Juarez: A City on the Edge, a border city in which gruesome murders seem to have become part of the culture.

This reminded me of Nick Kristof's series of reports on genocide in Sudan (Dare We Call It Genocide? and Sudan's Final Solution) with more to come, see Nicholas D. Kristof.

There are so many things in the world about which one might feel outrage that it's hard to pay attention.
