bloggin’ it old school

I know some of you are probably horrified by my handwriting. It crossed my mind to ask someone else at the library to rewrite what Id jotted down, but, in the spirit of honesty and full disclosure, I decided to just put it out there for you to see.

I know what you must be thinking: This makes everything that hes written in the past exponentially more disturbing.

For what its worth, Im neither a trained ape or a drooling lunatic. I just write like that because I have dyslexia. Or at least thats what Ive been told. (I was also born in Kentucky, but that probably has less to do with it.) Please dont hold it against me. You were good enough to accept the depression, the OCD, the political ranting and the profanity whats a little learning disability?

OK, Linettes coming to pick me up in a minute, so I have to go. Were heading out to a benefit for Gallery 555. Ill be back with more tomorrow.

Oh, if youre looking for something to read, check out this article on the dangers of eating ape meat. Apparently, it can lead to Simian Foamy Virus, the newest species-hopping cluster fuck to come down the pike Or, check out this negative piece on the Bush administration from The Wall Street Journal! Thats right, the fucking Wall Street Journal is publishing articles about the inconsistencies in their 9/11 story now. That’s how bad things are getting. This is truly an “Et tu, Brute” moment… Heres a quote from the section on Bushs immediate response to the attacks:

But uncut videotape of the classroom visit obtained from the local cable-TV station director who shot it, and interviews with the teacher and principal, show that Mr. Bush remained in the classroom not for mere seconds, but for at least seven additional minutes. He followed along for five minutes as children read aloud a story about a pet goat. Then he stayed for at least another two minutes, asking the children questions and explaining to Ms. Rigell that he would have to leave more quickly than planned.

OK, I think I hear Linette pulling up in front. Bye.

Again, Im sorry about the handwriting. Really. Ill work on it.

    how about a children’s book called “Left Behind” about a child who doesn’t have health care or decent clothes to wear because because the Christian right killed welfare programs?

    Great idea, Max.

    I’d forgotten about that children’s book idea… Damn, I should read through the archives more often. There’s lots of good stuff in here.

    And Simian Foamy Virus is so much cooler sounding than swine flu.
