Falling down

Remember when there was that fairly major bridge collapse in Minnesota in 2007 and suddenly everyone in the media was reminded about how a lot of America’s roadways and bridges and general infrastructure were built several decades ago and money should really be put into upgrading these various highly-used potential death traps? What happened with that?

I guess those problems just sorted themselves out.

Ineffective advertising

This ad! So weird! Why is the baby so angry? That face does NOT make me want to make my future baby. Because that future baby looks PISSED OFF. I will NOT click here to begin! Yuck.

Introducing!

Dr. Meowsers!

Full-time cutie-pie, part-time purr machine! She is hands-down, the cutest kitten in existence. She is also a complete scaredy-cat who is very unsure of anything new! But that somehow just adds to her adorability! Technically she is a British Shorthair, but unofficially, I’m pretty sure she is part kitten, part anime woodland creature. Awwwww.

They have the authority to kill a minority

How is this possibly a case of involuntary manslaughter? Oscar Grant was shot in the back, while face-down on the ground with his arms handcuffed behind his back.

During the G20, I watched the CBC. Peter Manning was shocked that the riot cops in Queen’s Park were advancing without announcing why. Like that it was genuinely a huge, weird surprise to him that police who are dressed and presenting themselves in an ultra-aggressive manner wouldn’t take the time to let everyone know why they’re about to start terrorizing random citizens.

Sometimes there’s such a total disconnect in presumably intelligent people’s minds that I have to wonder who is really paying attention. I guess some people don’t really have to because it will never affect them anyways. But when you read reports like Oscar Grant’s, you wonder why anyone who isn’t a middle- to upper-class white man would trust the police at all, right? The US DOJ is looking into the case, but I honestly don’t expect much from that. Who would, besides Peter Manning?
