Violent Revolution

Sometimes when reading I encounter passages like this one, from Nicholas Kristof's most recent column, and I wonder if I was around 30 years ago I'd be as willing to tackle the society's problems through government:
Some Americans used to argue that it was impossible to rape an unwilling woman. Few people say that today, or say publicly that a woman “asked for it” if she wore a short skirt. But the refusal to test rape kits seems a throwback to the same antediluvian skepticism about rape as a traumatic crime.
I feel like I'd be more predisposed to to violence. But that always makes me think: "What am I dismissing today?"


My phone's broke, but you can reach me at _________

Sorry if confused you, my phone's actually in good shape. But I've seen twice in the last two days Fbook statuses like that.

It seems to me that there is a unique pleasure in having someone so close that you can be reached through them. Seems nice.

Do y'all agree?


7 cups of coffee and blue, blue sky

Boxed in boxed in.

Boxed in by this glass this glass wall its got me trapped its got me trapped.
Its got me trapped this glass wall but its glass so it failed a little I guess ‘cause my eyes they aren’t trapped no my eyes they can still wander as they please, they look out into the world that surrounds me this world that I can’t touch or really even here but I can see yes I can see.

Whats this whats this?

Where am I going, where is this taking me? I can still see I can see all around but I can’t see where I’m headed or why I’m headed there. Why can’t I see? Why can’t I see?
Wait a second, wait a second. This glass, it isn’t so glassy actually, its more like something else. Not quite sure though, but it seems to me that I might be able to put my hand through it. Yeah, I think that I might.

Though I s’pose I could put my hand through glass too, huh. But I’d have to be ready for some pain, am I ready for some pain?
