What’s scaring us: Art & Wine edition

July 12, 2008

I’ve been a little under the weather the last few days, so it feels like the right time for a linkdump, in the form of a list of things people are afraid of this week:

Speaking of which: Jesus.
Congress: Big campaign donors being unable to use “I was just following orders” as a defense for helping the government spy on citizens.
Los Altos Hills residents: Toni Casey running for office

Personally I hope she does, because I am curious whether Los Altos Hills is conservative enough that her affiliation with George Bush might actually be to her advantage.

Los Altos residents: Mountain View residents

Don’t worry Mom and Dad, the police think she was adopted.

Mountain View residents: Brown people, and also gays

Last week, I lamented that people were more upset about the Voice’s use of the non-word “preggers” in a headline than they were about a double-murder that orphaned an 8-year-old boy. Readers of the Voice site responded (with some prodding from yours truly) in a flurry of posts insanely blaming the tragedy on low-income housing and federal immigration policy. (Not a single poster said anything along of the lines of ‘I hope the police catch the people responsible for this.’)

    Btw, what is NOE afraid of?

    Schrenk Rap is afraid of NOE giving her kids whatever is making him feel “under the weather” 😉

    In all seriousness, she’s afraid of finding out how the Cubs will manage to eff up between now and five outs before they win the pennant.
