As embarrassing as it is to admit this, I won’t be blogging tonight because new episodes of “America’s Next Top Model” and “Veronica Mars” are on. If you’re looking for something to read in my absence, check out the profile in The Atlantic of Alabama’s Judge Roy “The Rock” Moore. I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s my favorite sentence: “Roy Moore’s political rise can be traced to two male strippers (“Silk” and “Satin” were their professional names) brought before him on charges of murdering a drug addict.” I like that all of his success can be traced back to the trial of two male strippers (and the fact that he insisted on having the Ten Commandments present in the courtroom during their trial).

    why do people turn their kids into freaks in the name of religion? i just drove my grandson to school and on the way we noticed two girls in droopy assed long skirts and other strange fashion statements. they belong to some local church that feels it is a sin to look normal. i have no quarrel with their beliefs for themselves but why do they force their children to be different? when my oldest daughter was in elementary school, she came home one day in tears because one of her classmates had a birthday and brought cupcakes for all the children as a treat. this same religious group had left instructions that their children could not participate in parties or any sort of celebration and had to be sent to the library. (?) wtf? my daughter was upset because when she passed the library, she could hear the isolated students crying. sorry for the rant. i just had an enormous overload of pity to get rid of.

    The kids sent to the Library were probably Jehovah’s Witnesses. My friend and I were just discussing this the other day and she remembered that happening when she was in grade school since they don’t believe in celebrating holidays of any kind. Going to a Catholic school I was saved from the trauma of hearing kids crying in the library because they didn’t get a cupcake.

    “and I said Mom, just get me a cupcake
    all I wanted was a cupcake
    and she wouldn’t give it to me”

    Is that a Suicidal Tendencies lyric?

    You know that the Veronica Mars actress is from Detroit? She went to Shrine parochial school.

    Linette says there’s a parochial school somewhere around here that’s called Ladywood. I like to imagine that the girls there are super bad (and sexy). The name Shrine isn’t nearly as evocative.
