Oh, boy.

"I was just a boy when I sat down
To watch the news on TV
I saw some ordinary slaughter
I saw some routine atrocity
My father said, don't look away
You got to be strong, you got to be bold, now
He said, that in the end it is beauty
That is going to save the world, now"

- Nick Cave, Nature Boy, from 'Abattoir Blues'

Wow. I have a son.

: )

"Gimme an Ow! I mean Y!"
