Worth the Wait

I caught a little bit of Randi Rhodes on the A.M. dial earlier this week, and she had a male caller from the Phoenix area. He was expressing his concern that the Bush administration has not been held accountable for all the harm it has inflicted on us and the rest of the world.

He said that he himself had been convicted for a crime and that he had served out his prison sentence. He felt that Bush and Cheney should be impeached and tried for their various offenses, some of which have cost the taxpayers of this country trillions of dollars and some of which have caused deaths of tens of thousands of innocent people. True enough. They should be justly punished, as he himself was, he said.

He added that it was in prison when he had started to tune in to Randi on the radio. At first Randi balked at asking him what his crime was, but curiousity got the best of her.

He said that he'd been homeless for about a year and one day he just got sick of it, so he robbed a bank.

It either that or he was going to kill himself.

He walked into a bank, approached a teller, and told them was going to rob the place. But he had to wait around for the police to get there. They finally showed up about ten minutes later and arrested him.
