Wild day in the world / on the internet today:
Obama is waging war on pirates
And trying to nationalize the student loan system.*
People are trying to forgive their spouses**
and others are fainting on Glenn Beck like it's a tent rivival.
Spain is putting the smackdown on torture since our courts won't
because they are too busy not being good.***
Ok, so maybe it was mostly a good day for reading The Paper. But still, kind of a wild mess huh? Watch this to wind down (free for a limited time!).
*the discomfort I feel over stuff like this-- even though it's for the good of the students-- ME-- is really making me wonder if I'm a fiscal conservative, or maybe if having GWB for president for my entire adult life screwed me up to the point that I can never be on the same side as the Prez.
**I liked this article because I felt like yelling at the whole planet this afternoon. Very tense afternoon. I pretended that I, like the main character, got to throw my fit.
***I could talk about the Supreme Court all day. Fascinating stuff.
