Because the time has been tough for quite sometime, especially since the Tohoku disaster, which is still now going on. I’ve been reluctant to expose my usual stupidity in the situation like this. And yet as I am such an idiot, it is impossible for me to write anything non-stupid… Besides, I do not want to fill my pages with this and that daunting stuff.
Nonetheless I finally decided to waste my e-pencil writing about them. Otherwise I won’t be able to resume my えいごのれんしゅう.

And the killing is praised as the greatest achievement of relentless efforts which have lasted for nearly 10 yrs. Further more, some kind of people gathered around big places like Times Square to celebrate the homicide. Incomprehensible.
And then finally an opinion came out in NY Times, “Why We Celebrate a Killing“, saying the celebrations are “healthy and even altruistic”. More incomprehensible, because apparently the author (a professor of psychology) is aware that there are people who are disgusted by the celebrations, and also aware that writing in praise of the celebrations will be regarded still more disgusting.
