If you are feeling good about anything – life, sports, a new job, the stock market, yr morning coffee, anything – SoD invites you to peruse the headlines at CNN.com right now.
Let’s see… what do we have? Oh, the terrified screams of the flight crew and passengers who were about to relish a fiery death… can we get the audio? Yes? Sweet! A mild-mannered professor/murderer dug his own grave in a desolate forest and killed himself in it. Awesome. Another soldier went crazy in the desert and gunned down his comrades, and he’s being charged for it. Et cetera.
I do see two partially redeeming headlines. First, we have the brilliant insights of Dr. Qanta Ahmed that Islam does not condone wife-slapping. Of course, even bringing this issue to the Rotting Brainfruits of America is sure to engender more ignorant email forwards from yr closet-racist relatives. Second, there’s a link to Time’s piece on how stupid you are with yr credit card. It’s OK, I know you don’t have time to read the article because you are driving yr H2 to the lake for a day spent on yr boat avoiding creditors. Thanks for “buying” American, at least.
To paraphrase Charlie Blackwood, I’ll have what you’re having. Hemlock, is it?
