Everything is connected 

One of the last few rooftop antennae (antennaeus paricapitis) remaining in the wild. Captured in Topeka, circa 2005.

Saw 'Syriana' yesterday. Watching it was like taking a crash course in the dynamics of the oil industry. Very few movies like Syriana and Network come close to capturing the cut-throat atmosphere behind billion-dollar enterprises. With new players like China and India with their increasing fuel needs, the game is only going to get dirtier.

1) When Clooney turns into an unwitting suicide bomber at the end, I wondered if it was an ironic twist that the director intended.
2) Why haven't suicide bombers targeted oil tankers yet? Sometimes I feel that movies and books just give them more ideas to kill more people.
