Company asleep at home in the guest room, me sitting in my new office (I love my job), and I’ve just awakened my husband at 6AM PST because I got distracted and wasn’t paying attention to the fact that I was in “Recent Calls” rather than “Voicemail.” I think that all sends a pretty mixed message about how my Friday will play out.
So do my links:
- Waldenbooks stores in Greensboro, Winston-Salem to close
This is kind of sad, beacuse the Waldenbooks in Four Seasons Mall was my first real bookstore, the place where I bought my first books on many of the topics that still interest me today, where I bashfully purchased my first issue of The Advocate at age 17 (back when it used to not suck) and where I even picked up a boy once. I never walk into one of their tiny little stores today, and I can’t imagine why many people would, but thirty years ag0, they brought a higher quality of literature to places in America that might otherwise not have had it.
- Virginia Foxx Tweets Question: “Will govt-run healthcare require monthly abortion premium?”
No mixed message here. She’s the same crass political opportunist and lunatic fringe alarmist she was last week and always has been.
- “Rush Radio” coming to Triad FM station
Great. One of the Triad’s only interesting radio stations is now becoming “all loudmouthed angry white guys all the time.” Listen in as cultural diversity gives way to babbling bigots.
- Fred Rogers Statue Unveiled On North Shore
I have no snide comments about this one at all, except to say that I wish I’d been there or that I could be there for the tour this weekend.
