Damn Molemen!

"According to the defendant, he was afraid they were going to put him in cargo and ship him to China to be eaten."

It is tragic when a mental illness results in the death of another person. However, I think in this case they REALLY have to take into account his history of drug abuse. It more than likely has something to do with his actions.

English Papers

Writing English papers usually has one of two results for me. First, I come to loath the piece of work, and for a time actively wish that great harm would come to the author. The poems of William Carlos Williams are an example of this. It’s been ten years since I wrote that term paper, and I still hate the poems. Second, I come to a deeper understanding of the work, where I love it and it really becomes a part of me. Shakespeare’s “Richard III” is an example of this, although much of that comes from the fantastic Ian McKellen movie. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Sadly, as I sit here trying to bash out a paper on one of my favorites, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” it is quickly turning into the loath it category. When I’m done here, I should probably go watch the Kevin Kline movie of it… see if that helps….

Update: Paper is done at 3:30am and its pretty good. Now the only trouble is staying awake. If I fall asleep between now and when class starts at 9:15am, theres no way I'll make it. I guess I'll go watch that "A Midsummer Night's Dream" now....

Update: Watched "Star Trek: First Contact" instead. I think in my sleep deprived and addled state its even better.

What A Way To Honor Him

On Thursday the UGA newspaper "Red and Black" honors First lieutenant Noah Harris who died in Iraq. Harris was a former UGA student and Cheerleader. And how does "Red and Black" honor him? They run a political cartoon that has a ribbon that says "Support Our Gulags." Nice guys, real nice.
