Word Isn't Out Yet

A-Minus: 2 Weeks, 4 Days

I'm still getting back into the swing of things after my vacation here. At the same time, I'm getting ready to leave.

I was walking down the hall and bumped into one of my semi-retired coworkers I hadn't seen for a while. His face beamed delight once he caught my eye.
"Oh, your here! Great!"
"Uh, yeah," I responded, "Good to see you too."
"I noticed you've been out of the office for a while. I thought maybe you had gone to Israel or something. I've been watching the news, it's CRAZY out there! What's that? You just went up north? What a relief!"
He clutched his chest, mimicking a near heart-attack.

Little does he know.

glad u r safe. sad for victims on both sides, but now after Qana, i'm sure i have no place in my heart for anyone but those poor Lebanese children died today. 37 children under 15 years old out form 57 dead. All out of 64 was living in the building.
shame olmert. shame Israel. shame UN for standing silent watching Israeli DF slaughtering civilians.
I hope when u come back to Israel, will find it enjoying peace that’s based upon mutual respect and wills, not on "law of strongest" forced by some maniacs bombing children.
And Evan, yep, so little does he know.
thank u Evan for commenting on my post. i'll sure consider.

did you see the reports that the building in Qana collapsed 6 hours after it was bombed and that it was attacked 12 hours after 2,000 liflets were dropped in the area PLEAING people to leave and telling them that the building will be hit ?!... got to learn the truth, got to have guts to face the consequences of brutality of the offenders who hide behind those poor children (may they rest in piece)! Read a book about Nazi's, Stalin, Castro --- they kill their countrymen for nothing and wouldn't shed a tear if that kids blew themselves up in front of an Israeli tank !!!

Evan - sorry, I forgot to mention -- if you see liflets on the strees -- please read them !
