(melting the ice of my mind)
For your consideration: another curious collection of thoughts, reactions, and observations that didn’t make it into a full-length post this week...
• This Just In: Rush Limbaugh now says that President Obama caused the earthquake in Haiti — with help, apparently, from Al Gore and Osama bin Laden — so he could divert attention from the health care debate and burnish his global humanitarian credibility and dupe you into giving him all your contact information with that bogus White House web site donation link.
• Okay. That’s not true. Except for the last part. I made the rest of it up. But it sounds true, doesn’t it?
• Here's a headline, ripped from the pages of this morning's PG, that hardly inspires a lot of confidence: Officials hope to prevent students being left on buses. Way to step up and be bold, Pittsburgh Public Schools. Way to take a firm stand for the safety of all the children in your charge. Parents all over the city can now breath a sigh of relief that you hope, and dream, and cross your fingers, and might even someday wish upon a star that their students will not be abandoned or forsaken by their school bus drivers.
