Outside of the actual wars going on in the world, there is no other more sickening demonstration of the base disintegration of simple decency in our species, than watching a “musician’s fandom” (quotes SO intentional) go on a twitter rampage against a person they’ve perceived has in some way slighted their ‘hero.’ The sensation of reading their tweets, is the same sensation you’d have from walking barefoot through a sewer. And you always wonder at the worst of them, ‘did somebody actually RAISE you? Do you have a mom? Loved ones? Any sense of right and wrong in the world?’ The answer I always come back to is, no.
“My younger sister died when I was seven. I remember my mom asking if I’d seen her, and we searched the whole house, and discovered her beneath some hurricane shutters. We think that she climbed up on them to play, and they fell down on her. My strongest memory from that day is these two young girls, holding open our front door when the paramedics arrived. I can see them clearly in my memory, but I don’t know who they are. I may have just invented them, but I like to think that they were angels.”
A New Delhi teenager who was allegedly raped and thrown into a well in Western India survived by hanging on to a ledge for 15 hours until she was rescued. A report by the New Delhi Television Station said the 17-year-old girl “was sexually assaulted by her neighbor when she went to work in a field in the town of Bhilwara in Rajasthan state. The attacker then pushed her into a nearby well.”
In 2013, reports of crimes against women increased by nearly 27%. Police attribute the rise in reports to greater widespread awareness and anger fueled by recent high-profile attacks against women in India.
This sucks. If you look at her credits she’s really familiar but I actually know her best from that movie “Love Comes Softly.” If you’re a Golden Girls fan (aka watch Hallmark Channel) you know they run that movie like every two months as part of the “Love Saga.” All those old west love stories. Her movie was the first one with Katherine Heigel and Dale Midkiff. She was the tomboy daughter. Again, sucks.
I actually wrote this sentence involving a potable liquid in a beverage container … and left it through one draft. Then I was reading it over again and thinking, ‘there’s something wrong here, what is it? Oh, that’s right! I’m an idiot!
