A headline for a story about the National Spelling Bee, above the masthead in my morning paper, says, “Kan U Spell? Word Nerds’ Time to Shine.” Congratulations kids! The regional newspaper thinks you are a big loser, because you can spell words correctly. I am sure that you won’t get your ass kicked today. There is no link to the headline – the AJC’s on-line version had the good taste not to belittle grade school children’s academic achievements.
Other things that are pissing me off today include:
- Christian Yoga – you know, because the regular yoga is little more than witchcraft.
- The Left Behind video game.
- The 50 best conservative rock songs – which could be the stupidest thing you see all day. How stupid is it? It includes a Clash song. The author should be relieved of his keyboard.
- Lastly, there is a demonstration of striking carpenters going on 27 floors below me. The working man has no greater friend than yours truly, but, dudes, shut up already.
