Nicole In A Nutshell

Musings from a sickie

Filed under: Issues In The News — by Nicole @ 8:33 pm

Not feeling so creative today, as I am suffering from the allergy attack/autumn cold that would not die. Whatever is stuffing up my sinuses seems to have leaked into my brain and sucked every thought right out, save “Man, I hope I’ll be able to breathe again soon.”

In the meantime, allow me to share with you two things that stood out during my seven hours of internet surfing (a/k/a my workday). The first hails from one of my favorite writers, one of the funniest commentators on society I have ever read:

“I look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

– Author David Sedaris, on undecided voters

Ain’t it the truth?

The second outstanding find of the day comes in the form of a rather stirring image. I realize that it may be deemed controversial, but it sums up my feelings on the issue as succinctly as any words I might say:

 

Separate but equal is never equal. Do the right thing, California.

Separate but equal is never equal. Do the right thing, California.
