THE BIGGER HALF

My children argued over who got the bigger half of a cookie or candy bar. They wanted to know who I loved the most. That's the way children are. Fair measure and equality is important. However, as we grow older we learn not everything can be equal. We mature -- at least some of us do. Who knew some people would apply this child-like measurement to world conflicts.

The media is favoring Lebanon in their reports because, as MSNBC stated, the casualties are disproportionate. Israel has created more casualties than Lebanon.

Shouldn't we reflect a moment on the first blow? Hezbollah (hidden in and harbored by Lebanon) kidnapped Israel soldiers, thus retaliation began as it did for the U.S after 9/11.

It seems so easy for our liberal media to only grasp and amplify tiny pieces of the big picture. None of this is a game and human life is being lost. Yet, the show must go on. The coliseum audience spurred on by a frenzied media still applauds the lions!
