Who do you trust with your children?

I keep see­ing news sto­ries about kids dying in day­care or at the hands of oth­er peo­ple to whom their par­ents have entrust­ed them, and every time there is so much shock and rage as if peo­ple can’t believe it’s hap­pen­ing. I am so tired of it. Pay atten­tion!  How many of the peo­ple in […]

WTF? Georgia Senate Threatens to Secede!

Geor­gia Sen­ate threat­ens dis­man­tling of USA They real­ly did, by a vote of 43–1. On April 1, but it was­n’t an April Fool’s joke. The res­o­lu­tion goes on to endorse the the­o­ry that states have the right to abridge con­sti­tu­tion­al free­doms of reli­gion, press and speech. Accord­ing to the res­o­lu­tion, it is up to the states […]

I missed what?

It was Nation­al Gram­mar Day AND Gamemas­ter’s Day, and I did­n’t real­ize either until the day was almost over! It was date night, though, and my favorite GM and I did play, so at least there’s that. I’ll have to get him a make-up present, though. You know all those dif­fer­ent click-to-give sites? I very […]

Urgent! AB+ blood donors needed in Atlanta!

ETA: This was post­ed in Feb­ru­ary 2009. I haven’t heard of any ongo­ing need, so I think we can assume that the lit­tle one is healthy now. Thank you for all your kind offers of help! I just received this from Elise Witt, who received it from a fac­ul­ty friend at GSU: Pro­fes­sor Anu Bour­geois delivered […]

Linky Linky

You know all those sto­ries and wor­ries about immu­niza­tions con­tribut­ing to autism? For­get them. The doc­tor who wrote the study that start­ed the scare back in 1998 has been charged with “fix­ing” the data. What’s more, the “study” only involved twelve patients! The sec­ond sto­ry is a very good arti­cle about how the obe­si­ty scare […]

My Hometown

While brows­ing the AJC this after­noon, I was sur­prised to find Gads­den, Alaba­ma fea­tured as a “one tank trip” des­ti­na­tion. I lived there for 7–8 years as a child and spent sev­er­al sum­mers there in my teens, and had­n’t ever heard of any of the men­tioned attrac­tions oth­er than Noc­calu­la Falls. I was even more […]

What’s an “internet wife” anyway?

Police allege man mur­dered by inter­net wife’s ex-hus­band It’s the head­line that both­ers me. Just at a glance, I’d think that the mur­der vic­tim had an online-only rela­tion­ship with his “inter­net wife,” like those peo­ple whose MMORPG char­ac­ters or Sec­ond Life avatars get “mar­ried.” But, no, he met the woman on the inter­net, and married […]

Tell-Tale

I sup­pose it’s a sign of the AJC’s real pri­or­i­ties when the only sto­ries they ever con­sid­er “urgent” enough to send out an email alert about are sports items. That’s the only part of the news that I have nev­er cared about at all, in the least, peri­od. I’m not being drawn into any heightened […]

Another Homegrown Terrorist, This Time in Tennessee

Police: Man Shot Church­go­ers Over Lib­er­al Views Knoxville, Tennessee—An unem­ployed man accused of open­ing fire with a shot­gun and killing two peo­ple at a Uni­tar­i­an church appar­ent­ly tar­get­ed the con­gre­ga­tion out of hatred for its sup­port of lib­er­al social poli­cies, police said Mon­day. That makes a lot of sense. This whack­job is unhap­py because he lost […]
