More kudos.... all U.S. television stations that chose not to show us the land mine public service announcement.

Apparently TV has decided to spare us such unpleasant imagery, thus maintaining American's purity, dignity, and apathy through ignorance.

Save for the History Channel who ran it one time in the middle of the night, the Ottawa Treaty, which bans the development, manufacture, stockpiling or trade in terror-fying weapons that kill and maim 26,000 per year--mostly women and children, it's off our radar screens.

I guess one could make the case that 26,000 injured and dead from land mines is an insignificant drop in the bucket when we're busily engaged in killing hundreds of thousands in the middle east and don't give a shit about that either.
