taken aback

Today, at my direction, the United States carried out that operation… they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.

The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date against al-Qaeda.

Tonight, we give thanks to the counter intelligence officials who have tirelessly worked, we give thanks to the men who carried out this operation.

Finally, let me say to the families, we have not forgotten your loss, today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country.

Tonight we are once again reminded that American can do whatever we set our mind to … we can do these things not because of wealth and power but because of who we are.


black nights

last night i dreamt of a dead rat. it was in my car, still breathing. it’s body pulsing up and down.
it looked at me/ scurried away, leaving some of its guts behind.

morning news

A tarantula hawk is not a hawk, but a giant wasp that lives in California’s
deserts. An expectant female can be up to four inches long, and when the
time comes, she pounces on the nearest tarantula, which is also native to
deserts lit orange at night by the glow of Los Angeles. She paralyzes the spider
with her half-inch stinger, then drags the prostrate arachnid to an underground
lair where she lays a single white egg on it. The egg hatches after five days,
and the infant wasp dines on its hapless victim for about a month, craftily
saving the organs for last so that the spider remains alive—and fresh.

behind them on a hot Independence Day at the beach.
