I decided not to. Don't get me wrong, bitching about humanity never gets old, but I think enough people are covering Egypt. I think it's time to focus on some other news around this blue ball of ours.
Let's look at some headlines:
Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl becomes big event
Sarah Palin files paperwork to trademark her name
Jaime Pressly pleads not guilty to DUI in LA
Woman charged with frying pan attack over dropped bagel
Hunter sues after failing to find elephant
Doesn't all of that sound of the same, nay, greater importance?! (If any of you said yes to that, meet me out back in five minutes. Don't wear a helmet.)
There are plenty of serious news stories going on in the world, as well as hordes of innocuous ones. Focusing all of your energy and attention on one small (albeit culturally significant) part of the world is akin to driving with blinders on. ( If you don't know what blinders are, use a search engine.)
Plant a tree. Grow a garden. Walk to work. SAVE THE DAMN WORLD. You won't do anything by Tweeting about HOW YOU STAND WITH THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE. I did this, and the only thing I accomplished was feeling completely useless. So I donated some money. Then, I'm looking into the possibility of arming the protesters with molotovs and chainsaws.
Have a good one.
