Since I really don't think I have the energy to cope with the serious rage I know I'm going to experience as I read this horrible, condescending, pointless, petty, and resentful article in full, suffice it to say that I hate it more than just about anything on planet earth. And I hate a lot of shit. For now I'll let Amanda Marcotte do the talking, and see if I can come back to this later without my brain exploding. But I really am curious about why the New York Times is so determined to undermine young people at every chance (based on bogus research and made-up theories) they get. Stop it, guys. We actually are smart enough to find and read newspapers.

Since I was a little disappointed to discover that the ship found buried under the World Trade Center site probably wasn't a whaling ship, this is a welcome bit of cool whaling ship news. I was also pleased to discover this rock on Lake Superior while I was camping earlier this week, which I think slightly resembles a sperm whale.


I'm getting antsier to start school again every single day. I can't wait to be back to working hard, reading and writing a lot, and starting my two new jobs.
