The Body Electric - Hurray for the Riff Raff

Oh, and tell me what’s a man with a rifle in his hand
Gonna do for a world that’s so sick and sad?
Tell me what’s a man with a rifle in his hand
Gonna do for a world that’s so gone mad?

"I thought about it for a very long time, and I thought about "Caleb Meyer," the Gillian Welch song, which is a murder ballad, but the woman survives and is able to defend herself. And I was thinking about the woman in New Delhi who was killed on a public bus, and the articles in the news about young women in high school getting sexually assaulted and it gets out on the Internet. These boys are actually not thinking they’re doing anything wrong, to the point where they can videotape it, put it on the Internet and not think they’re going to get in trouble or that anyone would get upset about it. And suddenly, I thought, it’s time for a song about bringing that back to something very simple and direct. I’m a human, when you say that, you’re talking about killing me. You’re talking about killing my best friend." - Alynda Lee Segarra

I had this, too.

My dad collects Fisher-Price Little People playsets. He has multiples of most of them, and my mom’s mission this year is to go through every one of them and match up the pieces to make complete sets, and then sell off the extraneous unmatched parts.
A has been playing with the castle when she goes to visit, and last time was sorely disappointed to learn that the horses don’t fit in the dungeon.

Fisher-Price sets were the best.  I remember this one, especially the horses.

An intellectual? Yes. And never deny it. An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. I like this, because I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched. Can they be brought together? This is a practical question. We must get down to it. I despise intelligence really means: I cannot bear my doubts.

SD State’s Attorney says Tasering Girl Was Best Option; Family Outraged
Two months after an 8-year-old girl was tasered by a Pierre, South Dakota police officer in October of 2013, Hughes County State’s Attorney Wendy Kloeppner released a report which stated “she was satisfied with an independent investigation, deploying a taser was the best viable way to diffuse the situation,” and no charges would be filed against the officer or the child.
