Satire Dies Again

In 1973, when US war criminal Henry Kissinger was laughably awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, satirist Tom Lehrer announced his retirement, claiming that “Satire is dead”.

Well, if it wasn’t dead then it certainly is now, as I’ve just read the following headline:

BLAIR HANDED MIDDLE-EAST PEACE ENVOY ROLE

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, and I assume the millions of Iraqi bereaved, homeless, displaced and maimed feel the same way. Really, I am absolutely lost for words.
