Do terrorists even have ankles?

I wondered this as I settled into my seat on the bus this morning, and draped the tail end of my scarf over my exposed ankle. Why would anyone want to disassemble one? Such a rather contrived bit of bone and connectors, hardly a real joint at all. Suceptible to crushing, bending, all horrible things, to contemplate, let alone try to reassemble it.

Battered humanity got me thinking ahead, expecting to see Gibson's flick tonight. About humanity. Its destruction and death. About how hard it is to believe in the reversal of it all, right through the center of horror and wrath.
