Oh, we are a screwed-up world.

Whim- You can say that again.

BP- Bruegel was a punk rocker. Critics are hooey machines.

JS- This year's DNC Convention might look like this...

CW- Well, if it's any consolation, Bruegel felt the same way in the year 1562 and yet here we are- 2008 and not extinct yet!

Hat- I see your tears reflected in my rain-covered windowpane.

Beth-Religion.
