The early bird...

One of the things I'm finding pleasant about being up at 0-dark-thirty is that when I surf through the Times (the local newspaper) website, people haven't made any comments in their forum yet so I can just read the articles and move along.

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Seriously, those forums are terrible, you have people from throughout the US making some pretty despicable comments (racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-everything-but-their-very-narrowly-defined-group-of-people-who-are-ok), launching personal attacks, and basically demonstrating all the worst traits that we've come to associate from online interactions. Even better, if you try to have a serious debate with someone someone will come along and screw it up (by making racist, sexist, elitist, pretty much any obnoxious comment you can imagine).

It's really pathetic and it's linked right off the the newspaper's website, on almost every article every day. Reading some of those posts makes me acutely aware of how it was possible to end up with 8 years of the current moron sitting in office... it also makes me worried that these same idiots who can't spell, can't write, and apparently can't think will have a hand in electing a bitter angry old man who tells them it's ok to be the worst we can be instead of appealing to our better natures.

Bah. I need something less depressing to think about. Time to get to work.

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
