What is it good for?

So, uh, Russia is invading Georgia? Or something? This, apparently, doesn't appear to be big U.S. news. Excellent commentary on that fact here. Of course I can't say for sure, not being very much exposed to media these days, but I'm inclined to agree with Kovalic's assessment, since what little news I do see is on CNN in the break rooms at work, and I didn't see shit about this. I saw mad John Edwards coverage, and I saw Olympics. I did not see nuclear powers going to war. So there you go.

Anyway. So there doesn't seem to be enough punch attached to this story. Here's what I'm thinking, to put things in perspective. Remember Watchmen? Remember when the headline first broke: "Russia Invades Afghanistan"? Remember how that newsstand guy felt? That's probably how we should feel right now.
