Blink. Blink.

Sometimes you come across something on Antonia Zerbisias's blog that seems as if it were written by aliens. Yesterday, she wondered if the stories about rapes in the Superdome and babies with their throats cut would turn out to be true or not. Then she wrote:
These stories, true or not, are very much on the minds of the public, especially those people who support the administration despite its tragic neglect and incompetence in this disaster...
If the tales are not true, it would be an even greater tragedy for the Katrina victims. Haven't they suffered enough? Must they also be tarred with such ugly notions of class and race?
Okay, if I understand the English language correctly, Zerbisias is saying that it would be less of a tragedy for the Katrina victims if stories of rape and baby-killing turn out to be true, than if no rapes were committed and babies did not have their throats slit...
Unbelievable! Doesn't make any sense any way you slice it! It's like rock beating scissors... No rape beats rape. Live babies beat dead babies.
