snip-pet: a small piece of something
I like reading the comment threads of online articles because they reveal the hatred, stupidity, and ignorance that seem to be so prevalent in society. I was reading a sports article yesterday on the web site for an arch-conservative newspaper serving an arch-conservative community and an arch-conservative university. After reading the article I scrolled down to the comments only to find this:
Should I admit that I found the comments essentially dull, boring, and uninteresting.
That’s the sunset from the Maritime Museum of San Diego on Friday, September 4. I had just come from the Parade of Sail which opened the Festival of Sail taking place this weekend. Many of us consider the Parade of Sail to be the unofficial start to San Diego’s “Fleet Week” in recognition of the military stationed and living in San Diego, mostly Navy and Marine. “Fleet Week” is a misnomer since it officially starts September 8 and ends October 4.
I liked this statement from author Anne Rice about Kim Davis:
“Whatever gave this woman the idea that any individual has the right to publicly and stubbornly disregard the rights of an entire group of Americans, based on her personal belief? And to think all of this is over secular marriage licenses! Not life and death. Not war and peace. But secular marriage licenses! What a colossal waste all this has been of the tax payer’s money and the court’s time.”
Climate change seems to be bringing a lot more rain to San Diego. Along with the rain—July was the wettest July in recorded history here—has come some strange weather, like hail on March 1.
Rain and hail, though, mean clouds, something that usually is an all or none situation. However, we’re getting some really nice clouds which means really nice pictures, like this one:
The place where I go each year to watch the Parade of Sail has a lot of friendly pelicans, like these two:
The little baby pelican in the middle is soooooooooo cute!
