So at the present moment, I have been a NYTimes.com junkie. Ever since I have made NY Times my homepage I have been such a news nerd, and I suggest you all to do the same. Such a sneaky, sneaky way to implement global events into your daily lives. There is too much craziness going on in this world to ignore. For example: Somalian pirates taking over US crew ships?! This article has Hollywood blockbuster written all over it (hint hint Christopher Nolan). And Obama slowly pulling troops from this drawn-out war, “It is time for us to transition to the Iraqis. They need to take responsibility for their country.” God I love that man. Also, what about the underground trafficking of little boys in China because “a girl is just not as good as a son”.
This world that we are living in is insane. But, I feel the more we are aware of what is going on, there is a greater chance for change. I hate to bring us back to the days of Saturday morning cartoons- but as the wise animated musical known as School House Rock! once said, “Knowledge is Power!” So read up people!
