I have a love-hate relationship with blogging about the news.
There are times when I revel in it, when it’s the best way to get my creative juices flowing (so I can avoid tired garbage metaphors like “creative juices flowing”). There are times when I think I might be able to change a few minds for the better. There are times when I think it’s all just verbal masturbation and self-flattery. There was that one time I caught myself hungering for a disaster or atrocity to write about and hated myself for it.
And there are times like now.
The stupid and evil, it burns.
And it’s everywhere.
If you irritate a sleeping animal enough, it will growl at you. At least.
