The Bobo of Job

As tomorrow is theme day, and the theme is not "Bobo Sucks" I suppose Attaturk might as well get his regular shots at the clown prince of insipidity now before the clock runs out on 2004.

Tomorrow Bobo puts up a column that replaces his love of the "Natalist" with his disdain for the "naturalist". Apparently, Bobo thinks that Mother Nature is a cruel mistress...

The nature we saw this week is different from the nature we tell ourselves about in the natural history museum, at the organic grocery store and on a weekend outing to the national park. This week nature seems amoral and viciously cruel. This week we're reminded that the word "wilderness" derives from the word for willful and uncontrollable.

This catastrophic, genocidal nature is a long way from the benign and rhythmic circle of life in "The Lion King." It's a long way from the naturalist theology of Thoreau's "Walden" or the writings of John Muir.


WTF? Does the man not have a dictionary handy?

gen·o·cide noun

The systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group.

Look, Davie, the natural world is dangerous because it works of its own accord that neither loves nor loathes a meat puppet like you. It is not an out of control dog that requires a rolled up newspaper and time in its box.

Jeebus the guy is just awful.
