It’s Tuesday. There really isn’t a lot to be said about Tuesday. It’s a bit less anxiety-charged as Monday. It’s not Hump Day because there really isn’t any Boom Boom Pow to it. Thursday is Friday Eve and Fridays are what we live for.
It’s Gary Busey’s birthday today. As we know, Busey is insane so I believe we should call this day after him and celebrate his vast oddness with my joy of actually witnessing him being vastly odd. No Tuesday, you will not beat us down. Gary Busey said so! Although I don’t watch American Idol, I would if Simon Cowell was replaced with Busey. That would be a dream come true.
On to link love, lust and adoration:

From all of us at Speak to Power, congratulations to Katie Allison Granju and Jon Hickman on the arrival of baby Georgia.
This makes me madder than hell. Don’t chain your dog to a tree in the first place, but those who allow them to starve to death deserve a special place in Hades.
The weirdest political parties of all time. I actually am sort of in love with the 32-hour work week campaign.
Holy Moly. Bill Clinton made some remarks about BP this weekend in South Africa and I have yet to hear them on the TeeVee. Wow.
Sheriff Tim Gobble on how Tennessee should emulate Arizona. I agree with the first comment of Joe Lance’s post at Chattarati completely.
These stories from the G20 protest are horrifying. Truly horrifying.
Miller, an independent journalist, was on her way to the jail solidarity protest Sunday around noon with fellow journalist Adam MacIsaac. She stopped at Bloor and St. Thomas Sts. where she saw police officers searching a group of young people carrying backpacks. She says police attacked her.
“I was throttled at the neck and held down. Next thing you know I was being cuffed and put in one of the wagons.” She says she was threatened and harassed by police at the Eastern Ave. detention centre. “I was told I was going to be raped, I was told I was going to be gangbanged, I was told that they were going to make sure that I was never going to want to act as a journalist again.”
She also says she spoke to numerous young women who were strip-searched by male officers.
Be kind to each other. Remember everyone out there is probably feeling the same way you are. That times are tough but the best thing to consider is that we are all in this together.
