One of TPC's contributors, Andy Marquis, linked me to a couple of the items that I will not write about today, and I included his comments. See, sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them.
Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health:
GA seniors push for integrated prom: Yes, "students at Wilcox County High School have two separate proms-- one for whites, the other for students of color." As Andy said, I thought it was 2013 not 1963.
Virginia woman pleads no contest in death of unborn child: She faced charges of involuntary manslaughter and DUI. Andy: "'Unborn child' - how the fuck can you kill something that isn't alive, idiots." And so the endless debate over when life begins continues. I have no doubt I'll be hearing about this one from Twitter trolls galore.
Mike Huckabee: Obama May Be Planning To Grab Guns And Launch A Nazi-Like Dictatorship: HuckaTwit does it again. Lather, wince, repeat.
More Sandy-Style Superstorms Likely Headed For Europe, Thanks To Global Warming: Why do we continue to push our luck? What does it take?
STUDY: States With Loose Gun Laws Have Higher Rates Of Gun Violence: Duh. DuhduhduhDUH.
See what I mean? So who’s up for a couple of Margs or a trough of wine?
