Nostradamus? Oh Please...

Before anyone passes me ANOTHER mutilated Nostradamus quote saying he predicted the Sept. 11 disaster:

"City of God"? New York City? No more than LA, Paris, Tokyo, Sidney, London or any other big city.

"Two brothers"? Really? Which two? I count at least three groups "involved". The Palestinians, the Israeli, the Canadians and the Americans. That's not counting the unknown/unofficial/underground groups.

"the fortress endures, the great leader will succumb"; "the third big war will begin when the big city is burning".

Sorry people, many "fortresses" have endured, "great leaders" have been succumbing for several thousands of years now and The Great Fire of Vancouver, BC that leveled the city was in 1886. There have been big fires in lots of cities since.

Nostradamus lived from 1503-1566. Pass me anything with a year outside that range, or even a fucked up section of that range (like 1504), and I'll SINGE YOUR ASS OFF.

Nostradamus does for BS what Stonehenge does for rocks. And he wrote enough of it to cover just about everything that could ever happen.

And anyone with a pebble for imagination could use Nostradamus, Shakespeare or, hell, even Isadore Freleng(!) as a script for acts of terrorism.

Yes, people. In a time of crisis, let's turn to a failed physician, wannabe beatnik poet, who was obviously on crack.
