Better Off Dead

As everyone probably knows by now, someone posted some bitching about Bush that could be construed by the picky as a threat on his life, some person reported this to the FBI, and the FBI (naturally) came to her place to see what all the hoo-ha was about.

Asshats, the concerned, and those required by law to report anything that might be a death threat to the President can and will report even a facetious post that could be interpreted as a threat. It's a fact of life.

I'm not saying to not post fervent prayers to the powers that be to, if it is within their Divine will, have someone important and dangerous to the very fabric of the Constitution choke on a pretzel, say. I'm just saying, if you post something like that or grouchier, that someone who may or may not be doing so out of a sense of justice and right (or malice and obnoxiousness) could report it, and you, too, could have someone unamused on your doorstep at odd times of night.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
