CNN.com – Reports: Car bomb explodes in Beirut – Mar 18, 2005

BEIRUT, Lebanon (CNN) — A car bomb has ripped through a predominantly Christian area of Beirut early Saturday, sheering off part of a multi-story office building and raising concerns about more violence in the volatile Lebanese capital.

Some people hate peace.  Tonight, some of them detonated a car bomb in Beirut.  Likely, the goal is to divide Christians from Muslims. 

For the life of me, I don’t get these people.  Why is peace so shameful, so dangerous?  How defective a mind it must take to equate with “wrong” Lebanese independence wrought by the peaceful withdrawal of Syrian occupation forces.

  1. I saw tonight in the observatory, through Alvan Clark’s telescope, the Dumb-Bell nebula in the Fox and Geese Constellation… I have rarely been so much gratified… Of all tools, an observatory is the most sublime… What is so good in a college as an observatory? The sublime attaches to the door and to the first stair as you ascend; – that this is the road to the stars. Every fixture and instrument in the building, every nail and pin, has a direct reference to the Milky Way, the fixed stars, and the nebulae, and we leave … the Americas and history at the door when we come in.
