More Randomness

Epic fail: Apparently the North Koreans aren’t any better at developing rockets than they are at feeding their people.

I know I’m treading on thin ice here, but it’s a good thing authorities have charged George Zimmerman. Obviously, I wasn’t there, so I don’t know what happened exactly, but at least a trial can sort that out. I suspect that, had Trayvon Martin been white, he would not have aroused much suspicion, but then I really can’t say. If nothing else, it’s a reminder that Neighborhood Watch volunteers are supposed to call the police and let them handle things rather than carrying a gun and confronting people late at night. Almost three years ago, a Neighborhood Watch volunteer in Bluffdale, Utah, was shot and paralyzed; both the shooter and the victim were armed.

Imagine you’re a state with a $10 billion deficit. What’s the fiscally responsible thing to do? If you answered, “Build a $68 billion bullet train” you’d be correct. That would be like a church that can’t afford to pay for janitors spending $5 billion on a mall. Oh, wait …

There are Democrats in Utah County. Who knew?

Oxymoron of the day: Raw Foods Cook-off.

You’re never too old for pedophilia, it seems.

Movie pick of the week: Bolivia. My friend Odell recommended this. It’s the kind of film I like: understated, yet very powerful. Bolivian actor Freddy Flores steals the show with his blank yet heartbreaking performance. Excellent.

Book I’m reading right now: Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez.

Love this.
