Another day in the paradise I call life. My computer has been misbehaving terribly and, thus far, I've been unable to purge the gremlins by the usual means. Sigh. Hopefully, tomorrow the troops (aka the ex)I've called in will be able to locate the little devils and destroy them. Needless to say that this hasn't helped my mental and physical health at all at all. In technical terms, I feel like you-know-what. I do thank y'all for coming by to visit and hopefully, I'll be getting caught up with all y'all soon.
So the best I can manage is a few random thoughts and, hopefully, interesting stuff in the midst of trying to get a few things done here, I'll get caught up with y'all soon.
* Here's a really awesome photo of those creative participants at Occupy San Francisco. (Are you there, Jan?)
* I am appalled at the Penn State debacle. Yeah, I'm a college football fan but as the mother of two college athletes (not football), I know a bit about the NCAA and the 'dynamics' of its rules and at this point I'm thinking of the 'scandal' last year at Ohio State when a couple players traded their championship rings for tattoos and culminated in their leaving and the coach being fired. The Penn State debacle is definitely worse and that anyone is defending anyone tells me that there is something very, very wrong. The fact is that it's Ohio State Michigan week and I'm not doing my usual silliness here. I might put up a "Good Luck" piece later but that will be it -- just my take but I think it be tacky. I still love my Buckeyes (and hope they win) but the past week reminded me what's really important.
* Dylan Ratigan, who I've been watching a lot lately, had this piece on a new initiative to get money out of business and you can see it here and and sign on and/or donate here,
* Kudos: In the light of all the recent attacks on the "Occupy" by police there are some cops who remember that they, too, are part of the 1%. When the protestors set up in Cleveland, the cops donated some tents to the Occupiers. If you have ever been in downtown Cleveland in November, you know the bitter, cold winds that Lake Erie brings.
* Here's Bill Maher with a short (1:01) video on the Republican debates. If you get the vapors over profanity -- don't watch it.
Well, I really have to muster some energy so it looks a human lives here. Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!
