Suck it Trebek/It’s Chili Outside will be attempting another win in trivia tonight. I think we have it in us. We’ve stockpiled an impressive amount in gift cards thus far and the idea’s been floated that we should just keep stockpiling and throw a huge party at the place we play with our winnings at some point. I’ll let you know if it happens.
I liked this. Especially how WaPo chose to make the first political cartoon in their slideshow the most incendiary and anathema to what Will is trying to say. Sigh. The further away I get from this kind of thing the more comfortable I am. I think it’s because I’ve had a cold for the past month that I’m pretty sure originated in some closet in Hell and, seriously, I have zero patience for … well, anything really. Least of all self-serving name calling that tends to exist only as a means to justify behavior. “As a general rule, we don’t believe in hate but it’s okay to hate THEM because they are so fringe and don’t think the way normal people do. So, we can be really mean to them. Otherwise, don’t hate. That’s our philosophy.” That kind of thing. Over. It. Good news? The cold’s pretty much gone now. But man have I felt crummy. But, there’s some peace in surviving it. And perspective.
