Never Make A Name And Bandy It About Unless You Mean It

  • Random Pop Culture:
    • It goes something like, "It would be dumb if we formed an alliance, made a name, bandied the name about, and said we were going to be like warriors, and then went against it." It was, quite possibly, the funniest thing ever said on Survivor. Thank God for DVRs, so I could rewatch that quote three or four times.
    • What a freaking fantastic blindside! What can stop JT from winning it all at this point?
    • Caught up on Heroes. The Sylar as Norman Bates stuff is freaky as hell. As freaky as Hiro saying "Baby Matt Parkman" is funny.
    • Finished up the first season of United States of Tara. Not even the best show on Showtime (Dexter) or the best half-hour show (Weeds), but good.
  • Random Hatred and/or Love:
    • You may be surprised to find out that I'm not a huge fan of Affirmative Action. It's a band-aid on a much larger societal problem. Are fewer minorities in certain positions because employers or universities discriminate? Or are there fewer minorities because they don't have the same opportunities earlier in life and, therefore, aren't as qualified? We have to work to improve earlier education, both through making sure the public schools are as equal as possible and through ensuring that the family enviroment is supportive and conducive to education. We can't just stick unqualified people in positions for the heck of it. With that, read this post by Ta-Nehisi Coates about an upcoming related SCOTUS case. He couldn't say it any better.
  • Random Educational Moment:
    • It's learning time.
