More bat-shit crazies from the U.K.

It’s been reported that before his death Bob Marley converted to Christianity. I hope so. In one of my favorite Wailer’s songs, “Wake Up and Live”, the song begins with these words: “Life is one big road with lots of signs, So when you riding through the ruts, don’t you complicate your mind.”

Yes. life is one big road with lots of signs, and unfortunately, my generation–in too many ways–became a sign and instrument of the culture of death. Take for instance, Virginia Ironside, a columnist for the U.K.’s Independent newspaper, who has caused public outrage by saying that she, like all “good mothers”, would put a pillow over the head of her baby if it was suffering from a disability and would have a poor quality of life:

Virginia, Virginia, Virginia… Convert to life, and above all, wake up and live…
