i am angry
Is anyone else a bit angry today?
This is an open thread. Feel free to let fly.
[I have to leave the house for a while. Please find me some "good news" links? Please?]
Update: What? You want me to explain? There's about 500 things to be angry about right now including, but not limited to, ineptness, incompetence, looters, people shooting at rescue help, people with absolutely no capacity for empathy or sympathy, moral absolutists, people who refuse to generate even a modicum of understanding of people in a dire situation, lack of responsibility, lack of preparedness, helplessness and the general suckiness of a good portion of human beings. So many people fail at humanity, on a daily basis.
Update again: Hah, this is kind of funny. Everyone thinks I'm angry about what THEY are angry about. Getting "fuck, yea!" emails for things that weren't even on my mind.
Apparently, some people have taken the words "I'm angry" and used their Little Orphan Annie decoder rings to figure out that what I really meant was "I blame Bush and ONLY Bush for everything." Uh....don't hold your breath waiting for that post, it's not coming. In fact, if you're one of those people who spent the past three days posting nothing but potshots at Bush in regards to Katrina, you're on my list. Not that you care, but you're on the list.
