    Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror

    I'm easily amused by satire and witty humor. Thus, Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror: Observations and Denunciations by a Founding Member of Monty Python tickles me a bit. Because the pieces in it were written as newspaper columns from just after 9/11/2001 to July, 2004 some have dated a bit but I still like them. They're pointed yet light.

    I particularly like Mr. Jones's observation about the grammar of the "War on Terror." "How do you wage war on an abstract noun? It's rather like bombing 'murder.'"
