This may be my last apology

And I may not be blogging here much longer.....

In fact, if Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is right, very soon I might not be blogging at all:

Israel and the United States will soon be destroyed, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday during a meeting with Syria's foreign minister, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) website said in a report. Iran's official FARS news agency also reported the comments.

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad... assured that the United States and the Zionist regime of Israel will soon come to the end of their lives," the Iranian president was quoted as saying.
How much time I have, I really don't know, as the president didn't set a definite date. But all this blogging has been fun while it lasted, and had the United States made it to May, I might have had a four year anniversary.

Surely, when Mahmoud says "soon," he means before May?

Damn! I hope I didn't contribute to the problem, for I recently compared Mahmoud to Coco's favorite ShihTzu, Tristan. But honest, it wasn't meant as a particularly unfair comparison, and I didn't mean to offend the Iranian president, much less cause the end of the world. Honest! All I was trying to say was that Coco and Tristan (the ShihTzu) probably had more fun than Mahmoud and Hugo (the Venezolano).

Is that really so bad that things had to come to this?

And on top of that I'm starting to really feel guilty about something else. I'm remembering my well-meaning attempt to send Ahmadinejad a necktie. Might that have been misinterpreted? Like, you know, him being from another culture and everything?

I swear I wasn't trying to insult him or make him feel bad or hurt his self esteem, but I thought that if he would wear a necktie that might lead to him being put on the cover of Time Magazine, where only peaceful people go.

Anyway, this was how I visualized world peace:

Laugh if you want, and I know it sounds naive in retrospect, but I honestly thought that if I could get the man to put on a necktie, not only would he see the light, but it might stop the end of the world.

Hey, at least I tried. And hey, if it turns out I really have caused the end of America, well, I'm sorry!

There. I apologized.

Shouldn't that be enough?

Perhaps he just doesn't know how to put one on. You should invite him to a necktie party -- to show him how of course. That couldn't be misinterpreted, right?

If you want to really get him to speed up the effort to nuke us, I still have an old Rush Limbaugh collection tie you can send him..
