Less than two weeks!

So, we'll be heading back to the US in less than a couple of weeks. I'm excited, but no expectations. I'm thinking I'll buy the Sarah Palin book to keep me entertained. I'm curious if the traffic will seem to be moving in the wrong direction? I'm wondering if Americans are as loud I think they are going to be? Will people be fatter than I remember? Will Christians be as egocentric as I recall? Will the country be as polarised as it was when I left it? Will "s" and "z" fuck up my spelling for evermore?


Stay tuned......

Same bat time, same bat channel...

Palin, Palin, Palin, and Bimbo Capitalism

I've been reading about Sarah Palin all morning. Gawd, I forget how much fun she can be! I kinda want to read the book. But don't want any of my money going to her bank account. American politics is postmodern performance...reality is so much more entertaining than any fiction. The parody has become the original. Then, there's this bimbo capitalist - what a piece of work. Larry King hits the mark. She doesn't give a flying fuck about her Christian ideals; she just wants to make a buck.

Stephen Hawking and Maine

Earlier today I was entering info into the work database on a course we are doing next year about Stephen Hawking. Funny, there's a show about Hawking on television right now. Fascinating man. As a counterpoint, I absolutely do not understand people who believe in god or gods to explain their existence.

Meanwhile, in Maine, god fearing people turn out to repeal same sex marriage. Keep voting on our lives, we aren't going anywhere. We are your mothers, your fathers, your brothers, your sisters, your neighbors, your doctors, your garbage collectors, your priests, your hairdressers, your...

We live in an age when people would rather waste their time on legislating other people's intimate lives than exploring the possibilities of the universe.

Life is odd.

Good thing I have irony and adjectives.
