Robby's Words on the Impending War

From Maximum Ink March, 2003

LK: What's the one question you wish someone would ask you?

RT: As a matter of fact, in lieu of current events, I'd like to state my belief that there is a huge, huge tragedy about to happen in this country, and this world, that's based on a very greedy and self-serving government, and I beg everyone not to let it happen. Some very terrible shit is about to go down.

LK: I take it you're referring to the impending doom of war?

RT: Exactly. I think this is a terribly wrong thing that is happening right now, and everyone should check our current administration's motives. It's really a sad situation that we're dealing with. This is not about politics; it's a humanitarian call. I actually went out campaigning with Al Gore for months against all this, and all our fears are about to come to fruition if people don't start speaking up very loudly. My wife is Japanese and watches the news from home and I have learned that the world as a whole is not seeing things the way our government is. I don't know how they're fudging these polls because everywhere I go people seem to be against all this. A lot of people are gonna die....we need to stop it.

LK: I agree.
