I meant to push copy but I accidentally hit cut, hadn’t saved the post and lost my last and I thought one of my best.
There’s a lesson in here somewhere besides the obvious–always save–but it escapes me at the moment.
I’ve been trying to make banners but I’m really horrible at it–as in can’t do. I’ve been trying to make a new template that’s cool, with more features and is more user-friendly (for both the reader and me) but I’m such a zilch at it, I almost feel defeated.
However, I’ve been in too good a mood to let anything get me down. Including a comment from anonymous “oh good, another anti-Bush site…”
While I don’t recognize Bush as president–I’ll never be convinced that election wasn’t stolen somehow–I’ve been veering away from him. After I finished my post that was lost, I realized that there wasn’t one 9/11 reference in it.
I’ve lost the anger that I was feeling for so long and I feel so light and so good I’ll take stupid sarcastic comments about my blog. I’ll even take venomous e-mails from somebody I know because I know that I’m not the person this person describes. If I thought I was I would have checked myself into a mental hospital or done away with myself a long time ago.
Anyway, Dick Ebersol’s plane crash has really saddened me maybe because I’ve always adored Susan Saint James especially in The Name of the Game, used to watch all the 12:30 reruns. I can’t imagine having one child trying to save another child’s life. Her older son tried to save his brother’s life. God, to live with that knowledge would be more than I could bear. I hope that her husband and older son fully recover.
Then I read about the new Avian Flu and how it will probably cause a pandemic if it affects humans. I began personalizing that one–not my death but kids I know and had to stop reading it.
Then I read a column by David Brooks about a “rational evangelist” who would deny me the right to an abortion, and try to convert me, but he represents the best in Evangelical thinking. If that’s the best, I can’t imagine the worst.
I’d give up newspapers but I like reading them too much.
