APRIL 2003

Tuesday, April 29, 2003

I don't like it when people form opinions about me that aren't based on fact.
Or when they argue with me on something, but they are arguing based on what they think I'm saying, but are actually missing the point altogether.

I could swear I actually had something substantial to say when I came in here, but for the life of me I can't remember...

I watched Laci Peterson's mother speak live yesterday.
I know since then most of her speech has been re-aired numerous times.
I don't think I've ever heard a more powerful speech delivered in a more compelling manner. Her strength, dignity and passion were very powerful, and though I'm not religious at all I was very moved when she said that her daughter was taken away from her on Christmas Eve and returned to her on Good Friday.
The pain that woman is going through is something that nobody should ever have to endure.

I guess thereís somebody in America right now who, at least for the time being, may actually be hated more than Bin Laden or Hussein...

I know people are innocent until proven guilty, but Scott Peterson should die an awful, awful death.

Now Iím no expert, and I donít know the whole story, therefore I should probably keep my mouth shut, but in my humble opinion, one who "lost" his pregnant wife shouldnít be picked up at a golf course, where he has a new look, 10 Grand in his pocket, and his brotherís IDs on him. That might give the authorities reason to believe he may be up to no good. I mean, chances are most people who "lose" a loved one might wanna stick around when decayed corpses are found, to see if the bodies are indeed those of their loved ones, and if so, try to accept the horrible truth and slowly but surely move on with their lives, albeit with a sad sense of closure.
But no, Peterson didnít seem to be interested, and instead seemingly opted for a lifestyle change...
I hear Mexicoís nice this time of year.

Like I said, I have no idea what the real story is, but thereís obviously something going on, and of course the worst part is a definite reality, Laci and her unborn son Connor were killed.
If it wasnít Peterson, well hey there man, Iím so fucking sorry to dis you like this.

But letís face it, weíre all pretty fucking sure youíre the lowest of low...
Do you believe in Hell?
Well, itís a little hotter than Mexico, but we hope you enjoy your stay.

Burn motherfucker, burn.

Went to see DADDY LIKES again, but it was the first night with a new singer...and he rocked! Suddenly the "party-cover band" was sounding like an ass kicking rock band, and yes sir, I like it!
They should be playing again soon. You might wanna check them out...

I'm sure I had originally thought about more to say in here today, but I can't remember what it was...

Just wanted to say a well deserved FUCK YOU to the kind people who mock the old lady because she fell. I guess they think it's funny when an older person who's already weak and tired takes a fall. If I told those same people that one of my parents, who are roughly the same age as the older lady in question, had fallen, there would be nothing but respect and condolences. And obvioulsy they'd expect the same had it been one of their parents. But because this lady is the perpetual butt of jokes anyway, it's funny when she falls? Fuck you, you pathetic, little people.

That's as clear as I can be on that since people here occasionally check out this site...

I am deeply saddened by the tragic death of NBC correspondent David Bloom.
He was in Iraq, covering the war, and died of a pulmonary embolism. He leaves behind a wife and three daughters.
And he was only 39.
39 years old, and he dies while covering a war, but not by methods of war, but by nature.
The irony is disturbing.
True, maybe the harsh conditions in Iraq created a less than perfect environment for his lungs, and maybe, I have no idea, he had some sort of lung complications beforehand. Like I said, I don't know.
But I do know that he was an up and coming news anchor /reporter that was here in Miami for a few years right around Hurricane Andrew. He'd been on NBC national for a few years now and was already the weekend Today Show anchor. Who knows how far he could have gone.

I realize that his was just one of the many, many tragic losses we will all suffer during the war, but somehow, right now, it stands out and hurts.

I'm not exactly politically minded, and I'd hate to be considered sexist in any way, but I can't help but think that 19 year old females do not belong in a war. I realize that a vast lot of the male soldiers are only 19 or 20 themselves, and I'm sorry about that, and I wish them all the best, really and truly, but I dunno...19 year old females? Those are still some devoted parents' little girls! I dunno how to express it right, but that's just how I feel.

So the weekend's here.
Don't really know what's up.
Been really bummed lately, duh, surprise, huh?

Only really came in here to set up April, but I should mention how glad I am about that young female American POW was rescued. Of course it's bittersweet knowing that there are so many more being held.
It's frightening.
