  •  Cheery, jeery Monday zoo (23+ / 0-)

    Jeers to cancer.  I always seem to have one more co-worker getting diagnosed.  Enough already.

    Jeers to the NRA.  Jeers to politicians who can't seem to figure out that the overwhelming majority of the country wants background checks and commonsense controls on guns that can fire a zillion rounds a minute.

    Cheers to Uruguay, the latest country to support same-sex marriage.  Are we ever gonna catch up.

    Jeers to mansplainers.  Obama's "best looking AG" remark about Kamala Harris wasn't the biggest deal, but it was a dumb thing to say in that setting.  He got criticized, he apologized, and hopefully that makes it a little easier for the next woman who wants to be treated with the same professional courtesy men get.  I don't know if we'd be getting the "she should've been flattered how dare chicks complain about this" mansplaining if it had been someone other than Obama.  All I know is, the 90's called and they want their "evils of political correctness" lecture back.

    Cheers to god books.  Guns, Germs and Steel manages to be both informative and readable.  And I'm loving quarkstomper's weekly series on the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

    Cheers to coffee.  It's Monday and I need some right now.
