There's a lot of depressing/infuriating shite that I could post about today. In the New York Times alone:
- We learn that Congress is simultaneously blaming Iraqis for the chaos that the U.S. has wrought in Iraq and making imperious "suggestions" to Maliki's puppet government.
- A guest columnist tries to convince readers that buying knockoff purses on Canal Street means supporting kiddie porn, human trafficking and terrorism. (I wonder if she works for Coach!)
- We see that the attempt to criminalize baggy pants is not just a one-town ass-backwards (as it were) fluke.
- And we find out that one of So Bored's favorite playwrights (and one of the most seemingly ethical of 20th century American writers) dissed his retarded son.
Bummers, all. But instead of focusing on these bits of grimness, I'd like to focus on the positive. Even though the world has lost its dog, so to speak, there's always a bright side:
Don't y'all feel cheered up? I know I do! On another note, I've been doing this bloggy thing for about a month now and my tech-deficient ass is just now learning about feeds and blogrolls and other neat stuff. Very soon I'll be adding a list of my favorite blogs to the site...
