A land forged from the fires of strife, blood of heroes, and touch of the gods.
Where deeds of great valor, vile evils, and blazing passions intertwine
to shape the course of elven and human history within.

Late again!

OK, I was going to post earlier this week, but the events in Libya and Japan just made me realize how unimportant what I had to say really was.  So I gave it a few days, and watched the news, and it really hasn't gotten any better.
The rebels in Libya are losing, and the rest of the world stands by and watches. Now even the Arab League is calling for a no-fly zone over the country, but no one seems to want to be the first to take a step.  So my feeling is, the dictator will win and remain in power, and everyone will say what a shame it is.  Politics just makes me sick some times.
In Japan, we have one of the worst natural disasters in recent memory, and a proud country and proud people doing everything they can to cope.  The outpouring of aid so far has been amazing; still, there are millions of people homeless, and a devastated area in Japan that will take years, if not decades, to rebuild.
The contrast of these tragedies is important to note; one is a struggle against an oppressive government, and a man too long in power.  The other is a struggle for survival, and the efforts of a country and a government to aid its people.
It's too bad the bad stuff seems only to happen to the good people.  How does that happen, anyway?
