Here's a writing prompt:

Defend US Foreign Policy.

For examples, be sure to mindlessly repeat '9/11' and further cannibalize the fetid corpse of American Political Discourse.

It is unhealthy to dwell on death - the final stage of coping is acceptance. What has this country accepted? That it happened. Not why, or how, or again how to stop something in the future.

The media, trivia, is our self-medication, our best intentions our motto, short-sightedness our method. We employ C students in our highest offices, and C students' best friends in ancillary posts. We deserve to be shaken out of our complacency again - but hopefully we will be shaken by a far-sighted leader rather than 19 constipated Arabs.

Until then, football.
