    Amazon always sends me those emails "We thought you might like this based on what you bought" emails. This is the one I got today. Don't know why, but I thought it was pretty funny.

    Franklin can count by twos and tie his shoes. No idea if he watches The Wire, though. And Bruce Cockburn sings the theme song to the Franklin show. Yeah, I know this all belongs in the parenting thread.

    Here comes the helicopter -- second time today
    Everybody scatters and hopes it goes away
    How many kids they've murdered only God can say
    If I had a rocket launcher...I'd make somebody pay

    I don't believe in guarded borders and I don't believe in hate
    I don't believe in generals or their stinking torture states
    And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
    If I had a rocket launcher...I would retaliate

    On the Rio Lacantun, one hundred thousand wait
    To fall down from starvation -- or some less humane fate
    Cry for guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
    If I had a rocket launcher...I would not hesitate

    I want to raise every voice -- at least I've got to try
    Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes.
    Situation desperate, echoes of the victims cry
    If I had a rocket launcher...Some son of a bitch would die.
    Bruce Cockburn's classic

    If I had a rocket launcher Bruce Cockburn (apprently related to my wife way, way down the line) would die.

    I kid....I kid. "Mama Wants To Barrelhouse All Night Long" is my fave Cockburn song. "Tokyo" gets the place money.

    Bruce Cockburn's most famous song, "If I Had a Rocket Launcher."

    This thread is exceedingly strange.

    I'm guessing there are a lot of parents ordering "The Wire" for themselves and something for the kids to bring their total up to free shipping level. :D

    Bunk: Them Greeks sure have weird-ass names.

    McNulty: Hey, don't knock the Greeks! They invented civilization.

    Bunk: Yeah, and ass-fucking, too.
