God loves Dolly Parton and I do too

Dolly Parton has been touring the country doing old classic songs, including what could be termed anti-war songs like Blowin' in the Wind - she is not being overtly anti-war, but she is making her case for peace. Dolly wrote a song called Hello God after 9/11 and I want to quote it here:

This old world has gone to pieces
Can we fix it, is there time?
Hate and violence just increases
We're so selfish, cruel and blind
We fight and kill each other
In your name, defending you
Do you love some more than others?
We're so lost and confused …

Hello God, we beseech you
In the name of all that’s true
Hello God, please forgive us
For we know not what we do.
Go Dolly! Let me conclude by saying I have been appalled as usual at Donald Rumsfeld's public
commentary in a place he has no business - the Constitution of Iraq. Condi Rice must just tear her hair out everytime this witless asshole steps beyond his bounds. If foreign policy were in the hands of this man, we would all be dodging bombs daily.
