Letters From A Random Life

This morning, on my way into work, I nearly hit a man as he darted across the street in front of my car. I was going to fuss at him, but then I saw why he ran across the road. Someone had let several horses out of their field and they were getting really close to the road. The man was running across the street to try to put the horses back in the field. The horses seemed to be laughing at him.

“You could argue that we’re having a genuine debate about economic policy, in which Republicans sincerely believe that the things Mr. Obama proposes would actually hurt, not help, job creation. However, even if that were true, the fact is that the economy we have right now doesn’t reflect the policies the president wanted…. When Republicans took control of the House, they declared that their economic philosophy was ‘cut and grow’ — cut government, and the economy will prosper. And thanks to their scorched-earth tactics, we’ve actually had the cuts they wanted. But the promised growth has failed to materialize — and they want to make that failure Mr. Obama’s fault.”

“Trampire:” Why the Public Slut Shaming of Kristen Stewart Matters for Young Women: Although no young woman shouldn’t think it’s okay to cheat, what we are teaching them right now is so much worse.

What really bothers me is the fact that we, as a society, act like we have the right to know what’s happening in people’s personal lives in addition to the right to be judgmental.  Regardless of how famous someone is, their personal lives are none of anyone’s business.  Unless, of course, they choose to disclose that information themselves.  Digging through people’s trash or using massive telephoto lenses to snoop is seriously uncool.  Let’s keep those telephoto lenses for taking awesome pictures of zebras and stuff people.

Say What Now of the Day: Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns, Jr. recently sent a letter to Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, in an attempt to discourage linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo’s support of a state ballot initiative that would legalize gay marriage.  The letter didn’t sit well with teammate (and punter) Chris Kluwe, who unleashed an all-out, expletive-laden blitz attacking Mr. Burns’ proclivities:
If gay marriage becomes legal, are you worried that all of a sudden you’ll start thinking about penis? “Oh sh*t. Gay marriage just passed. Gotta get me some of that hot dong action!” Will all of your friends suddenly turn gay and refuse to come to your Sunday Ticket grill-outs? (Unlikely, since gay people enjoy watching football too.)

Lots of jobs and fewer snakes.

I can totally get on board with that fewer snakes agenda.

Fair winds and following seas Neil.  That’s the same thing I had engraved on my parents’ headstone.  If you’re ever at Arlington Cemetery, they have a pretty good view.

Bill Clinton “doesn’t read from a Teleprompter: he converses with it. He talks back when it has omitted a crucial detail; he one-ups it when its rhetorical flourish is insufficient.”

This is so true.
