The Lilith eZine Sunday Edition
Letter from the Editor
We are dedicating this issue to George W. Bush, the outgoing president of the United States of America.
Bush, the staff at the Lilith eZine (and indeed many people around the
world) have made fun of you for 8 years or more now. Your quotes and
antics are, to say the least, amusing. We may not approve of the stupid
things you do, and we question your level of intelligence, but we've
managed to deal with your mistakes and inadequacies during a troubling
time in the world's history.
Some of us would like to blame you
with the world's problems. We could saddle you with problems like
global warming, climate change, terrorism and war, but that would not
be fair. You didn't create the war, or the terrorism or environmental
problems. You didn't create the credit crisis facing the United States either, or the corporate crime. There is a convincing argument for blaming you for high oil prices, but we cannot make you solely responsible.
much as we hate your guts, you are just one person of many who deserve
the blame for a variety of problems. We humans created these problems
with our greed, our laziness and our unwillingness to change. It is
mankind that will be punished for our mistakes, not you. You had the
opportunity to change things for the better, but you wasted it just
like the rest of us regularly do. C'est la vie.
That said, there is also the issue of your alleged war crimes,
torture, imprisonment. You could be held responsible for those actions,
and we won't have much sympathy for you in that situation. Barack Obama
will no doubt be faced with the prospect of giving you a presidential
pardon, but that will not protect you from the International Criminal
Court should they decide to arrest and charge you.
taking bets as to when someone will attempt to assassinate you Mr.
Bush. Somehow, it seems highly plausible that someone out there is
feeling trigger happy. Will we shed tears should it happen? Maybe, but
they will be tears of joy. Your controversial methods are not
My colleagues and I have created a
comprehensive biography of George W. Bush's life and his time in
office. We think it is a fitting end to Bush's career in politics. What
will he do next?
If his father's post-presidential career is any
sign George W. will be serving on the board of directors for the
Carlyle Group and helping the Saudi Royal Family with their
investments. Considering the price of oil quadrupled during Bush's time
in office that seems like a fair bet. The Saudis must be rolling in
cash by now.
With any luck Barack Obama will be able to fix the
mess Bush left us with and finally catch Osama bin Laden. Bush couldn't
even get that one right, could he? Oh well, he's only human.
