I bought this photo in 2008 or 2009 in a vintage shop in Newark, Delaware. There’s an inscription on the bottom right where the ink has mostly rubbed off. But by tilting the photo, I was able to read the imprint left by the pen: “To a Lovely Aunt, Love Rita.” I have no idea who the original…
Webcomic artists! What is up with those guys? All they do is sit around and draw pictures, it can’t be that hard can it? It’s not like they’re out running a triathlon or something. Why do they keep asking me for donations? Why don’t they reply to my comments? And why don’t they for god’s sake…
“Pro-life people are those, simply, who have seen that abortion, the deliberate killing of innocent people, is evil and must be stopped. We know that there have been and still are other evils, things that can never be reconciled with the Good. Things like genocide, slavery, human trafficking. Man’s inhumanity to man. We know that these things must be confronted, even at great cost. And that the people who defend these things must be personally confronted as well.
We who hold this position are regularly accused of ‘extremism’. When we make comparisons to the other great evils of our age, to the slaughter of the Jews in WWII, to the killing of hundreds of thousands in Rwanda, to the African slave trade, we are denounced as fanatics. So be it.”

Remember Mohammed Nabbous - known to all as Mo - his mission: to get the news about what’s happening in #Libya out to the world.
Mo was the founder of Libya AlHurra TV and was killed this morning while reporting on the attacks from the pro-Gaddafi forces. He provided regular live reports and recordings at this site: http://www.livestream.com/libya17feb
We often followed him, using his info and news in our reporting. Today, when attacks were reported in Benghazi, I was tuned in to his livestream for hours - at some point this morning he said that he was not afraid to die. And in one his first video’s that I saw, he said:
“I am not afraid to die, I am afraid to lose the battle.”
All day, everyday, we report on deaths around the world - a week ago, when Al Jazeera cameraman was killed in Libya, it forced us to pause for a moment cos the loss was closer to home. With Mo’s death, even though I’ve never met him, I feel like its a loss of someone I knew.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. We are told that Mo’s objective in founding Libya AlHurra was to help his countrymen by getting the word out about what is happening in Libya.
Let us honor this courageous man and help him realize his dream by directing our efforts to get news from Libya out.
I dated a girl named Gaia for a little bit back in the day (which led to a lot of “you’re dating a guy? HUHUHUHUHUHUH” mirth-filled conversations because a) I was friends with Beavis and Butthead b) it sounds like ‘guy’ when you mumble it and also, c) nobody ever thinks your dating someone named similarly to a Captain Planet character), but she had the trippiest eyes I’ve ever seen so I thought I’d share a pic because I’m secretly a scrapbooking old lady who likes to share things. Anyway. Coffee. Yep, it’s just about kicking in. What’s one of these marks called?
