A Thing Wherein I Infrequently Write Some Stuff

Niece Has Left the Building. (Then Kind of a Hodgepodge.)

We got CL and D to the airport at 8, ending another whirlwind niece-al visit jam-packed with stuff and things. CL said it was by far the best and most memorable trip that either of them had ever been on. The encomium is somewhat muted, of course, when one considers that this was the first time that D had ever boarded an airplane or left the province of Alberta—but still, it we’re more memorable than Sexsmith, and that’s saying something.

We spent the rest of the day being punished with merciless heat. It was 97 degrees Fahrenheit when we were out looking for a cupcake place that turned out to be closed on Mondays. We went instead to the pastry shop next to Saul’s and satisfied the sweet tooth there. Baby Dog was content to play with spoons and we were all happy to be out of the heat.

Mama Dog was overjoyed when that weird skeleton-buying, one glove-wearing, little boy befriending guy beat his molestation rap. In fact, when the second “not guilty” was read, she uttered a “wooooo!” sound that was probably audible at either end of our block. I hadn’t really paid much attention to the whole thing or followed any of the testimony, but I’m guessing that if twelve white people in the conservative part of Santa Barbara County were convinced to vote not guilty, the case couldn’t have been that strong.

In other news today, the leader of the maggot-fucking corporate crook war profiteer wing of the Republican party (as opposed to the leader of their dumb as a sack of grout ignorant-ass anti-intellectual religious nut cracker wing) gave the most ringing endorsement possible to DNC Chairman Howard Dean, by saying he doesn’t like him. Howard Dean is over the top? Possibly so. Dick Cheney is beneath contempt? Self-evidently so.

Last and least: if you’re at all keen on Calvin and Hobbes and/or Fight Club, you might get a small kick out of this (if you haven’t seen it a dozen times already).

Glad you had such a nice visit with your niece!

I, for one, am of the school of thought that MJ wasn't found innocent, he was simply found not guilty of the charges brought before the court. They guy still gives me the creeps. But I do think that case wasn't near strong enough. Shame on the DA for trying.

I'm of the belief that Jacko, though extremely weird, is NOT a child molester. His sexuality is infantile; he's not capable of normal, adult male urges, even homosexual ones. I think he just wanted to cuddle with those boys and thought nothing wrong with that. Otherwise, why would he have described his sleep-over activities so candidly with the public?
