Gassing Geese on the Green

A curmudgeon we know writes privately:
"Why it is comfortable middle class retirees can get so upset over a gaggle of geese disappearing but say and do nothing about hundreds of thousands of Iraqis being killed by our own Government with bombs bought with their tax dollars?"
When we passed that same question along to a friend, this was the reply:
"Maybe if people lived in Iraq and saw people disappearing instead of geese they would care. Or, if our Government came in and took people randomly out of their homes on the golf course and gassed them on the greens they would care."
Good point, but don't tell the Cheney Administration. They might think that's a great idea.
