Okay, this is just WEIRD
CNN this morning (about 8:30 EDT) had a charmingly surreal lil' story about a couple of kids in Israel who have found a new hobby - collecting shrapnel from landed Katyusha rockets. (Whee! Think of the collections all those Lebanese kids could do if they were as enterprising! And not dead.)
I've tried to find a transcript for the damn thing on CNN.com so's I can link to it here, but no dice.
All I can figure is this whole thing has finally gotten to me and I'm starting to hallucinate.
EDIT: Nope, I found a link to it on the transcript for Anderson Poochscrew:
ELISHEVA SILVERBERG, COLLECTS KATYUSHAS: It's kind of cool that you have all these remainings of Katyushas. It's like evidence to what's happening.
COOPER: Their father, Barry a teacher, thinks his kids' collection is a way for them to cope with their fears.
BARRY SILVERBERG, FATHER: In collecting the rocket fragments, it gives them a bit of a feeling of control over something that was trying to kill them.
COOPER: Control over something trying to kill them.
Well, isn't THAT lovely.
Meanwhile, 20 or so miles West in Tyre, their peers are getting blown to shreds and learning to "cope with their fears" the hard way.
