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.
