Political Post....maybe a personal post later this evening
What the hell, did Heroes premiere last week? Shows how little I care about the show, I guess. Did anybody watch it? Did it stop being a suck-fest?
I like this article on white privilege and the 2008 presidential election, by Tim Wise. Source.
White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you or your parents, because “every family has challenges,” even as black and Latino families with similar “challenges” are regularly typified as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay.
Also, I really liked this entry in Emma Bull's LiveJournal, which relates to the comments people leave on the Internet, or even things that are said in normal conversation.
I understand the impulse to reply to everything you ever read, but if all you ever have to say is something cynical and that smacks of "Well, clearly you should have seen this coming....like I did!", then it gets pretty old. Read it, people! Conversational etiquette, both online and offline, FTW. In fact, I think I'll just quote her entire post, because you should read it.

I don't think Heroes comes back until next week... but I could be wrong. The end of the last season was pretty good, so hopefully it continues.
I also mistakenly thought Heroes was going to premiere yesterday, but then found out I was wrong. It premieres on NBC at 8 next Monday, the 22nd.
