Not Molly...

..goddamn it. Not Molly Ivins! She was what helped make Texas livable for us lefty types...

Rest in peace with some good bbq and a cold Shiner, Molly! We will sorely miss you.

I'm baaack... (sorta). Fox News rant

Well, happy people, what I can tell you is that if you blink in this country, a lotta shit goes down.

Are we escalating in Iraq (something sure is)? Yes we are! No we're not! And the troops are listening!

What IS it with Fox News? I was watching the Daily Show and Jon Stewart gave ashoutout to the news networks-- "that's a looot of news to do, folks!", referring to the beginning (arg) of the 08 campaigns. But it made me think, what IS it in our culture that makes it remotely POSSIBLE for fox to exist as it does? Every time I turn it on it's another blowhard making bombastic proclamations, and does he or she not KNOW the value of being thoughtful?

I wonder when the Canadians are gonna put a cap on depserate Americans seeking asylum in their far more civilized land.

A bit of a bad start to the year..

Kind of a personal post, to explain what the hell happened to me.

Well, my mother passed away Jan 2 in Texas, quite throwing me into anger and fright. I just got back recently form the event, and am still processing the situation. All I can say is it sucks.

Further sucking is the move to increase US troops. My mom's family and my dad's contributed a lot and continue to contribute to the US military-- and I think they'd be pissed off as hell at the events. I feel more than ever the need to push for peace and understanding, or at least another way to approach the world this year than "amorphous us versus amorphous them".

Peace to y'all this year--
