I decided I should write a post because my last post got a lot of views.
The mood at the party, ya see.
Uh... damn, the M&M jar is out again. Let me refill that.
Have a scotch.
Have a non-affiliated-with-Orson-Scott-Card cookie.
Seriously, thanks for the support, and the polite disagreement. I want to reiterate: a lot of what the man said has been cherry-picked and taken out of context, and he supports things I support, but... he's affiliated with National Organization For Marriage, and there are your boss's annoying opinions and then your boss's activism.

I grew up with parents who burned draft cards, partook of "substances" and generally raised hell. I don't love the topical aspect of the show so much as the way it reflects the mindset that gave birth to my parents' mindset, and gave birth to my generation, who lived through a troublesome decade of our own and were mostly... confused. More thoughts as I watch the show. Which I'm getting back to now.
Also, the one movie scene that could make any man cry.
