On Lynchings, Writings, and Totems

Here in Louisiana there are gestures toward lynching every so often. For today, everybody read this from the African American Political Pundit. Going around with nooses is a prank if you are white, but battery turns into attempted murder if you are Black? Roy Briethaupt and Reed Walters need to be removed.

On a happier tone, today’s featured meme is a writing one, from the Paper Chaser. This is a good meme and we should all do it. The Paper Chaser has a toy meme as well, Find Your Power Bird. It says my Power Bird is a Vulture, which may explain why I am now cannibalizing the posts of others. (And their articles too – I am stuck on my essay because I have altogether too many texts to cite.)

In any case, here is the description of the Vulture as a Power Bird: You are always changing your life and the lives of those around you. You aren’t afraid to move on from what holds you back. Energetic and powerful, you have a nearly unlimited capacity for success. You know how to “go with the flow” and take advantage of what is given to you.

Even if I do not like Vultures, I like this description very much.

Axé.

  1. Ok Professor Z, you can be a vulture but I think you will find you have problems at the airports trying to travel.

    How so? They always give people grief over CARRION!

    ba dump bump! (rimshot)

    Hey, it’s monday morning….that was the best my feeble mind could do;)

  2. Heh!! GREAT pun, Chris.

    I realize this is odd, but I like vultures AND crows. Yeah, they aren’t pretty, but they are an important part of ecosystems, and they are usually smart and, in the air, unbelievably graceful.

  3. my native totem is an owl and having said that…so is my power bird — thanks for sharing this site!!

    OWL.

    I especially like this part:

    “You are good at seeing who people are… including the darkness of others.
    As a result, you tend to have a rather dark – yet realistic – outlook on life.”

    On the other hand, I took the test again,and came up an Eagle. 🙂
