earth day 2007

What are you doing for earth day? I’m building a scale replica of the earth.

What are you doing for earth day? I’m building a scale replica of the earth.

What are you supposed to do? Plant a tree? Sing songs to the ground? Not drive? Seriously.

I guess the best thing I can think of to do for the earth today is acknowledge that it is awesome. We are all animated bits of dirt and water and other assorted chemicals in an elegant reaction. We lose sight of that and often consider ourselves part of a silly, abstracted, conventional existence known as society.

Society is not real, the earth is.

The earth wins.


(Also, please support recycling, alternative energy, public transportation, local farming, the Kyoto Protocol, population control, and any other pinko conspiracy to make sure we have a livable environment until the sun runs out of fissionable material. If you don’t I’ll not write your name in the book of life. Not a threat, a money-back guarantee.)

Kucinich to Seek Cheney Impeachment

The wheels of time grind onward. Will we ever find ourselves with a virtuous government? Not without leaders that are willing to take an unpopular stand, and not so long as we hold our tongues.

I hope he follows through with this. I don’t think it will win him any votes and probably will cost him some of the few he gets. I also heavily doubt the impeachment will proceed. Still, it will become a matter of public record and that will be valuable for future generations that seek to rebuild the government and restore the peoples’ confidence therein.
