THIS IS WHAT I GET FOR MISSING THE NEWS

Can someone just tell me one thing, please?

Where the hell is Timor?

East or west Timor - I don't care - but where is it?

I have been working my butt off for the past couple months with one full-time job, one part-time job, a web site, a girlfriend and hopeful career and as a result, I haven't watched the news in easily two months.

Now I hear that there is some UN sanction fighting force going to someplace called "Timor" to stop some killing there. Gee - I wonder why we, the United States aren't leading the assault.

Actually, I don't - here's why we aren't leading the charge: two colors, green and white. Specifically the green of money that we DON'T have at stake in Timor (wherever that is) and the white of the skin of the people whose lives are NOT being threatened in Timor.

Oh sure, we care, but not enough to lead the charge because ONLY human lives are at stake and the skin of those human lives is kind of a light brown. They're Indian, right? (I know approximately where Timor is!) Wow and to think I almost missed this great opportunity to bitch about America's white-centricity.

That's what I get for missing the news!!
