Served my first jury duty today. Well, I guess I shouldn't say that I served it, because I didn't really serve anything. I showed up at 7am, sat around for five hours, went to lunch, sat around another three hours, and then got excused because they didn't need me. Want my advice if you're summoned? Bring a fucking book. But hey, after I deduct the cost of lunch, I made five bucks for my eight hours of sitting! Thanks, Tampa!

Charleston

Is there a moral difference between killing someone and not taking action to save their life? While I oppose the death penalty, I'm glad that I'm not Dylann Roof's prison guard while he's on suicide watch, because I'd have a hard time not looking the other way if that piece of shit tried to hang himself.

Lilo & Stitch

Kelly and I saw it because the trailer was very funny. ("You had me at RARR!") The movie had a lot of bright spots, but it could have used a bit more kick to it, a few more jokes. Go »

Bowling for Columbine

Not many specific words of praise come to mind about this film - I'm speechless - but I want to urge you to see it nonetheless. Go »

Hipster Racism

Jezebel ran a great essay this weekend by Lindy West, on failed, insulting attempts to address racism with irony. Go »
