None of the bits have anything to do with Labor Day. You can thank me when you get around to it.
You don’t have to be a grammar snob to dislike the Weather Channel website, but it helps. In today’s report on the storm still hanging around in the upper Atlantic: “Hermine is well off the Northeast Coast, but the effects of the storm is still effecting the New England Coast.” Who writes these things? Maybe they can try for three errors in one sentence next time.
Strange Trend in Blog Subscriptions
Why do I keep getting new subscribers with blogs that contain nothing but photographs? These people don’t write anything; they don’t have any information about themselves, and they generally leave the example text that WordPress inserts for the edification of people who need an explanation of how to blog. What’s the deal here? Is someone passing the word around that subscribing to random blogs might attract viewers to their own? If so, they’re wasting their time. If I had a driving need to view picture of animals and buildings, I might be tempted. Might. More likely, not.
Is the crazy getting crazier?
Maybe I just read the wrong news sites, and too many of them. But it does seem that crazies are crawling out from under every rock lately. A state’s freedom of religion law as justification for beating the crap out of your child? Pouring water over a kid’s head because he spoke Spanish on the school bus? Going into hysterical rants at total strangers because you believe they’re an ethnic group/religion/political persuasion that you hate? A tremendous number of recent crazies have the whiff of The Donald about them, as if he’s given permission for them to spout their delusions and act them out. Apparently, that whiff also allows them to believe that no one will notice and that they will escape any legal consequences.
