Lucky Sperm Club

Some folks are born into money. Loving parents, good schools, great beauty. If everything goes well, really well, and they find love and enlightenment, is it "bad luck" when they die?

Kids are born in the occupied West Bank every day. They know hunger and fear from the start. With no opportunities available for education or employment anything that we might describe as a good life is unavailable. Is it "good luck" when he dies?

Great men and women struggle with the plight of the poor, the hungry, the disenfranchised every day. Most of those brave souls never become media stars. There are no reality TV shows about suffering. Oh, we might take some pretty couple's Abercrombie & Fitch shorts away so that they're naked on the island but we're not about to focus on the shameful facts of the world's population.

Every ten seconds a child dies from hunger-related disease. Lucky?

I'm not sure what mystifies me more: biology, sociology or religion.
