And Speaking Of Compassion...

[via LG&M]

Grief Is Clarifying

It has become crystal clear to me that the kindness and compassion that we exhibit are the ONLY things that matter in this life. Any other metrics you use to evaluate your life are misguided. I learned yesterday of the imminent death of a dear man. He is someone I have worked with my whole career. He is not only the best at what he does, he's also a real mensch. Only the good die young, indeed.

Please be good to one another. We're all we really have.

P.S. Fuck you, cancer.

Let Them All Make Their Own Music [UPDATED]

[Update - the link is now bad. Bummer. It was a page where you'd click on things, and they'd make tones. The more clicks, the more tones, and you could essentially create a digital symphony. If anyone knows where to find such a thing, please leave a comment]

This is wonderful.

Children, Please! Let's Keep The Discourse Civilized.

[via LG&M]

Incredible. These kids are actually better than 95% of TV talking heads. In fact, I'll bet you $100 the one on the left is smarter than George Will. And the one on the right poops his pants less often than Bill Kristol.

Rich White Folks

A.K.A. Republican voters. See how many myths and stereotypes you can dismiss based on this.
