I'm watching "Terminator 2" right now
ITEM!: Brian is in a snit because they keep talking about the dentist that killed the lion, and referring to him as a "dentist." He would like to know why they keep saying his profession, because apparently, he thinks it's bad for the perception of dentists. He's taking this quite personally, I said to him, because if the killer was a gym owner, or an attorney, or a postal worker, the media would be saying that. I say, "How about some upset because the guy killed an animal for no reason?" And that just started a thing about how if Zimbabwe wanted to stop the practice, they would. Just because it's government-permitted murder doesn't make it right.
ITEM!: I started and finished a book today, and it was good, and I enjoyed reading it. You want to know something? My kid picks on me for how much I read. I remember that I became a better and more engaged reader the summer after I turned nine, so I'm really hoping the same for her. I'm going to be bummed if she takes a more ... paternal ... approach to reading throughout her life.
