I don't know whether to be amused, scared, or both.

Didya ever pick up a turn of phrase from another blogger?

I find myself thinking "this is a real thing in the world" from time to time. That's a title used for an ongoing series over at Shakesville, and boy oh boy, does it apply to this product.

About Constance's prom...

There's probably not much I can say about the Itawamba Agricultural High School prom that hasn't already been said. I hope as they go through life, some of the students at Constance McMillen's high school have experiences that lead them to open their minds and learn to treat their fellow human beings with compassion. It's disheartening, though, that the adults in the town were complicit in the high school meanness bullshit, and in fact facilitated a lot of it. Strange, I thought parents and teachers were supposed to teach children about kindness, civility and, you know, manners. Shame on you, so-called grownups!

Okay, folks...

I'm really gonna start blogging again. Soon. Really. Honest.

By the way kids...

Did you know that once you vote in an election, you should trust those you've elected to do the right thing, and not try to have further input?

What? You're writing a letter to your congressman? Why do you want to micromanage Congress?

Note: This post is not actually about the U.S. legislature.

Cryptic? perhaps

Calling people Klan members directly or by implication unless they're actually burning crosses or lynching people, is, at the very least, tacky. When the people you're talking about comprise a mixed race group including most of the POC in a larger very very white group and they're trying to fix an organization that has been unresponsive to all attempts to make it more democratic in the way it works, man, that's really classy.

And I wonder why I get so much use out of the fyyff tag.

Oh, I am feeling so belledame-ish right now.

It's very simple...

You want to read a good summary of l'affaire Polanski, read Kate Harding's piece, or Little Light's. Me, I'm through reading reading about this. People's apologia for this admitted criminal is not funny stupid, it's sad stupid.
