Poor guy. He had such big dreams, too:
This is sad.
Two of my favorite quotes from a brilliant writer:
As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
All in all, I would not have missed this century for the world.
I’m glad you didn’t.
So this is depressing.
Don’t know if I posted this already, but it’s still true
I don’t remember if I posted this either, but it IS amazing. And depressing. Happy New Year, America!
Elizabeth Edwards, who as the wife of former Senator John Edwards gave America an intimate look at a candidate’s marriage by sharing his quest for the 2008 presidential nomination as she struggled with incurable cancer and, secretly, with his infidelity, died Tuesday morning at her home in Chapel Hill, N.C. She was 61.
In a life of idyllic successes and crushing reverses, Mrs. Edwards was an accomplished lawyer, the mother of four children and the wife of a wealthy, handsome senator with sights on the White House. But their 16-year-old son was killed in a car crash, cancer struck her at age 55, the political dreams died and, within months, her husband admitted to having had an extramarital affair with a campaign videographer.
She was amazingly strong and a true inspiration. She posted a brief, eloquent message to her Facebook page yesterday telling everyone goodbye. I think she knew.
Rahm Emanuel on Twitter. Real? Well, probably not. Hilarious? For sure. He’s your next motherfucking mayor, Chicago!

He’s the vocals on this track. He was a great comedian.
