Overheard some children talking around the swimming pool of our townhouse complex today.
Topics included a returning war vet (Iraq?) killing himself and family--the child saying this didn't know why it would happen since "he [the vet] should be glad to be back in the United States."
Another child wondered aloud whether World War III (nuclear war, if I heard the child correctly) would begin if Israel were to bomb Iran.
This is the world according to Canoga Park, CA children on August 30, 2010.
