Bad blood rising

Ominous signs

     before the dust cloud settles
          in Berkeley
               left protests, nothing new

     after the dust cloud settles
          at Ground Zero
               right protests, something new

Zealotry begets



       Solomon's wisdom ... or not

Sacrificial lambs
     not an inconsequential act

       All this, and Pluto II
