Ray Harryhausen and Political Unrest

Ray Harryhausen is fun. I wish those people who are bombing embassies over cartoon drawings would take a moment and enjoy some fun things that life has to offer like a good Ray Harryhausen movie. My favorites are the "Sinbad" ones and "Jason and the Argonauts" and "Clash of the Titans". This seems weird to discuss politics with stop-motion monster movies I suppose, but my point is that the people in the rest of the world need to lighten up. It's strange to have a religion whose basic theme is "kill or be killed". Wouldn't it be more fun to get lost in a good, campy movie for a change?

Don't people in the rest of the world have anything better to do than bomb places, or behead people, or shoot guns in the air, etc.? Why not do something more constructive? Perhaps they could build a Disneyland of sorts? I don't know, but if anyone reading this could start doing something more creative like write or draw or compose music or poetry instead of killing people, life would be more bearable for the rest of us. The next time anybody thinks of killing someone, start with the man in the mirror first...
