    I bet, like me, you find it harder to forgive yourself than to forgive others.
    But creating the clusterfruck that was and is the Iraq War and its aftermath... how can one overlook the mountain of dead and the cries of the injured, displaced and abandoned on both sides of the Atlantic enough to forgive that?!?

    If I ever accomplish it, I will next try to walk across Lake Ontario to toast my accomplishments with my Canadian brothers and sisters.

      On this "forgiving myself": I'll be working on it for awhile.

      Hell, I might even start to like myself a little. :)
