On hearing Screams from Abuja

Today is another day of apoplectic speech by cretins abandoned by the lexicon of reason.

This is a shameful day for the so-called religion of the bombers, for their morality, and for their claim to a common humanity. Today some men – women even – will sit down to a meal with their families, having denied other innocents of their kin. They will cradle their own children, having murdered the children of others. They will even kneel down to prayers, having damnified their souls many times over. As proximate countrymen queue up in Abuja’s hospitals to donate blood, those of us far away stand near in spirit, guarding our common humanity against the mongrel dogs of war that salver in our midst.

Condolences, one and all.
