Contemplating Syria with The Firesign Theatre

In case I haven’t made myself clear, I am totally opposed to the plan, now being argued before Congress, to “punish” the Syrian regime, with U.S. air strikes, for that regime’s use of chemical weapons against its own people.

I am feeling a little better today though, and my…
