Awakenings

In my links section, I have added my favourite news blog. I love all of Oliver Sacks' books of case studies of people with exceptionalities, neurological disorders, and autism. An Anthropologist on Mars, one such book, is titled after they way one patient describes how they see the world in a state of uncomprehending detachment.
With a similar perspective, The Martian Anthropologist has a keen eye for news that is undercovered by the right-wing corporate media and humour that makes you weep. For an example of the former, Halliburton has been awarded a half-billion dollar Katrina rebuilding contract. And they get to underpay the workers while maximizing profits. Thanks, George. As for the humour, check out this Dear Red States Letter.
Oh, and I can't say this without also saying that I hope they Impeach George Bush. Apparently lots of people want to.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

Um. Are we saying that there's something wrong with single moms? They are some of the strongest people on earth, and many do it by choice. Just a thought.

Yeah, I wasn't in agreement with everything in that letter either. Still, it was kinda funny.
