smirk - by me

well well well

I was waiting for this to happen. This morning, I woke to the news that some guy in America (the secretary for defence or the vice president or something) officially announced that "the tragic events in Bali are the Australian September 11". I find this a little off colour. Are we not allowed to have our own tragedy and react to in in our own way? Why must we be included in the trauma of an event which has not yet been proven to be linked? Sure, it's likely that they were done by similar forces, but what ever happened to 'innocent until proven guilty'?

Sometimes, I get so angry at the world...
