    Thank you for some comic relief,

    It’s nice to see the human side of all these great minds at CFR.

    Cute stuff, now back to work 🙂

    I feel kind of dirty now. Like laughing at a racist or sexist joke at a comedy show, then looking around to see who saw you doing it.

    Yes, it is comic relief, cute stuff. Innocent people are being killed but sadly they are not right kind of people. So, tough luck.
    Lets get back to work.

    I like “Droney”, McLeod Cartoons. Too bad he’ll never get a cartoon series.

    As well as the “wrong kind of people” being killed, they are conveniently located in an especially hard-to-access part of the world, so it’s even hard to get people like the Stanford Law School students in to expose the situation.
