Good. Itís bigoted, narrow-minded assholes like this that deserve no place in the public sectors. Now he can continue to preach to his mid-western, born-again audience via NPR and when he gets kicked off the radio, he can buy a bullhorn and stand on the street corners, just like every other wacko with an opinion no one with a brain cares to hear.
This morning, M.s. shared with me a very sad thing . The twins did not survive the surgery, and people grieve for this loss around the world. Their courage and attitude was inspiring and refreshing. I followed the stories myself, and though I read about them and their situation, though I felt I understood them in the ways that were communicated through the reporters, it still surprises me how touched, how sad I am, to learn of their death.
Oh you media, what a cruel and spiteful puppeteer you are.
Tonight I begin a new class at a new location. Writing Composition, or something like that. Oh yeah, Iíll do just fine. The first assignment, due tonight, includes reading several chapters of a few different books and writing a few paragraphs describing my JOB, the PEOPLE I work with, things I do at the office, etc. Shit, I could have a field day with that one. Consider your audience, the book suggests. Do I write for the amusement of fellow students? Or do I pull from my headhunting days, and write an impeccable job description, fit for Wall Street? Perhaps a nice mixture of both. It IS just the first assignment, and it IS just so that the teacher (I hear heís a stiff one) can assess our level of ďneed.Ē Iíll work on that this afternoon.
Tomorrow night, itís Fiddler on the Roof at the Starlight Theater. Iím going for political reasons, managing partner sells tickets for a fund raiser, you BUY THEM. At least I did. Iíll enjoy it, though, itís a nice reason to go out with M.s. for an evening.
Money is low at the office. People were ďlaid offĒ yesterday. Itís a good thing I get so much done, a good thing that more responsibility is heaped on me each day. So, Iíll get to that. Gotta earn the keep, you know. I have bills to pay, and people to impress with my administrative adroitness.
