11:29 pm: the world is going to shit.
last friday i was in a sullen mood at work all day (to my co-workers, i love you guys, thanks for bearing with me. you are what held me together that day). among other things, you know what contributed to the anti-social, sourness? reading the newspaper before work. and trust, i enjoy reading the paper. and come on, i know the world is going to hell in a handbasket, i work at a news station, i see it everyday. but on this particular morning, with this particular paper, i had an epiphany. it just hit me. it was a full realization that we are in dire need of starting over. the world needs a do-over. death, rape, murder, molestation, war, robbery, world hunger, genocide. when does it end? if we can't stop crime on a micro-scale, how can we expect to stop it on a macro-level?




at my internship today, i was researching information regarding an immigration rally set for september 4th when i came upon this:

"Immigrant backlash in Atlanta: Buses used in pro-immigration rally burned"

http://www.infoshop.org/inews/article.php?story=20060427112037691

this person was kind enough to provide free transportation for those attending rallys, and how was he rewarded? by having 20 of his buses burnt. the frustration that wells within is a barren helplessness, really.




and then, this was on the wires at my internship this morning... i just don't get it. 89 years old. really? raping an 89 year old womyn? in broad daylight?

BCN39- ELDERLY RAPE VICTIM (UPDATE ON BCN6)

OAKLAND (BCN)

Oakland police said today that they're still trying to identify a man suspected of raping an 89-year-old woman in her yard in broad daylight on Monday.

Officer Jeff McCort said police have talked to several witnesses to the sexual assault, which occurred on Allendale Avenue near 38th Avenue around 9 a.m., and that police hope to release a sketch of the suspect Wednesday.

McCort said the 89-year-old woman was examined at a local hospital and has been released. He said she's doing as well as can be expected given the circumstances.

He said the suspect approached the woman while she was gardening and raped her in her yard.





i just don't get it... if anybody does, please explain it to me...
