[url=www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/living/columnists/dave_barry/3972571.htm]On hallowed ground[/url] Dave's columns are normally very funny. This one is very serious. This one proves that very funny writers must first be very [i]good[/i] writers.

It also suggests that for one to be truly funny one must also be very intelligent and observant.

Dave Barry can be outrageously funny, I love his stuff. But his best writing is serious. In one of his books he recounts a trip from Hong Kong into mainland China. With a keen eye and searing wit he tells what so many writers wouldn't, that the communist system is soul-killing decadence. Its in one of his books, and well worth reading. It should be required reading for socialist/communist sympathizers. I just went and looked it up. Its in his book [b][i]Dave Barry is NOT making this up[/i][/b] in the chapter titled [b][i]The Great Mall of China.[/i][/b]

Beautifully written! His very brief reference to people violating the crash site with metal detectors absolutely infuriates me! [pissed]

Doesnt' reading this make you want to strangle the jackasses who insist that the plane was shot down and those on board did nothing. The final messages spoken by several indicates otherwise. God Bless them.

His column right after Sept. 11 last year was great too. You should still be able to read it at his newspaper's web site. GunLvr
