I’m still watching way more

I’m still watching way more television than I ever normally would, even though there are rarely any new events I still turn on the news any chance I get. I don’t know why I feel so compelled to watch and wait for every new development, but I remain glued to the news. What worries me is that so many people seem to be crying out for war and military action. While I totally understand it, and I myself think it would be satisfying if we had one visible foe that we could engage and defeat, that just doesn’t seem to be the case here. Even if everyone even remotely associated with the attack is hunted down, there can be no treaty that would signal the end of a war. As much as we would like to belive this is a war in which we can use our impressive military might, I believe it is instead a criminal act of incredible magnitude. Unfortunately, no trial or sentance, no matter how just, could seem to be enough to pay for it so we feel the need for war.

Life goes on here in Columbus though, as my sister moved into the dorms here at OSU yesterday. That makes me feel so old. Ancient really. I’m almost done with school. Where did that come from? I really miss the times I had living on campus, but visiting her dorm now made me realize that without even noticing it I’ve just outgrown that part of my life.
