Morality Tale

Firestorms erupted throughout the unbiased media when Pat Robertson claimed that Haiti’s problems (with poverty, not the earthquake, as was incorrectly reported) were the result of a pact with Satan that voodoo priests made long ago. Yet there was little response when actor Danny Glover blamed the earthquake on Gaia being angry with world leaders for not reaching a climate treaty in Copenhagen. Ditto for Hugo Chavez, who blamed it on the U.S. military trying out its new earthquake bombs.

I fully expect to see Glover and Chavez reprimanded for their remarks with an Oscar and a Nobel Peace Prize, though competition for the latter will be fierce now that Osama bin Laden has taken to blaming global warming on American prosperity.
