Silly Saturday

June 20, 2009

This is perhaps the greatest thing I’ve seen this past week.  It is amazing how they distilled every cheesy nineties pop song into its most basic elements.


This is not a baby.

This is a fetus, and as such it has no legal right to existence.


This is a fetus at 18 weeks.  It is not a baby.  It can be removed from the womb piece by piece and all that is occurring is the removal of a tumor.

John Tory, Please run for mayor.

June 18, 2009

John Tory is apparently considering running for mayor of Toronto.   He seems to be the only person currently considering it who would actually have a shot.  He was a businessman before entering politics and lord knows we could use a businessman running our city right now.  John Tory is the man for Toronto.


Taking Blogging Seriously

June 9, 2009

I would love to write more.   I would love to put provocative, witty, and intelligent posts up on a daily basis.   I just can’t.  I think it is because I take blogging seriously.  If bloggers are going to be taken seriously then to a certain extent we have to take this thing we do seriously.  So I try not to be lazy and actually find sources that confirm what I say.  I read lots and comment little… I blog even less.  This is because I try to ensure that my posts find some sort of grammatical and logical coherence.  I still believe in capitalization, periods, and spellchecks.  I have some difficulty with paragraphs, but I’m working on it.  

I blog little because I want to blog write well.  Maybe this defeats the point of blogging, but if all I leave is this little corner of cyberspace I would like it to not embarrass me posthumously.
