Re: Thousands March on Washington Supporting the Right to Li

Sort of reminds me of how this happened in Canada recently.

But in the case of the story, it's nice to see people being actively engaged in politics, even if I disagree with their views on the matter.

We need more of that.

Re: Bill to make Rape/Incest Abortions "Destruction of Evide

I'm trying to find the words to describe how utterly terrible this is, but they all seem to have wandered off somewhere. Like...even if you have an anti-abortion bill that provides exceptions for rape/incest cases, this bill effectively makes the exceptions illegal! And if they get accused of doing ...

Re: Screechings of the Great Unwashed (Meander to the Morgue

If occurs to me that a lot of my writing focuses on the Internet and/or the effects it has on people.

Kind of weird to realize how much of an impact this thing has on my life.

I also hope I'm not a one-trick pony in terms of my writings.

Re: Hostess Closing Down after Strike (Twinkies No More?)

Sometimes I absolutely love the internet.

In short - it is quite possible that this closure is part of a cover-up of White Collar crime.
