Title taken from one of the best commentaries on this entire fucking travesty of a media I've seen in awhile.
As usual, I've got a lot to say but not the time to say it. But the great thing about blogging is that there's usually someone who's already said it, and said it better:
- georgia10 tells us about some people who aren't John Mark Karr. If ever a thing needed to be said...
- And there's this diary, which I've had bookmarked for almost a month now, that just so perfectly captures how I feel, and have felt for so many years now that I've forgotten what it was like before. Before I screamed as Americans were left to die in a city that was drowning. Before I faced a future of losing my rights as a citizen and a woman. Before I learned how broken our voting system is. Before I saw the picture of a young Iraqi girl, covered in the blood of her family. Before I read about everything, every front, every issue I ever cared about, under a brutal and sustained assault by the most evil agenda imaginable. Before I watched two shining towers of gleaming steel and glass crumble to the ground and before my country lost its collective fucking mind.
