To Hell in a Handbasket

Disclaimer: I've been really, freakin' busy for the past week and have had no time to sit down and write. Here I am and as start to getting myself back into thoughtful, happy writer mode, I will discuss some of the symptoms to major problems in our society. Or perhaps these are the problems themselves.

- Terrorists get more respect than public officials.

- An empowered woman is easily identified because she is always the bitchy, whiny, complaining, controlling, lonely, depressed, unhappy one.

- Very few people pay attention to where their kids are.

- One year olds watch Telletubbies and other programs without a lick of sense to them.

- One year olds watch tv at all!

- There's a disease called Intermittent Explosive Disorder.

- We care about how obese people in Ohio are.

- Making a food item from scratch is likened to carving a statue like the ones Michelangelo carved.

- Most people on welfare would rather stay that way than get off welfare and provide for themselves.

- And the kicker, the end all of these problems, the absolute proof that something is catostrophically wrong, "Planet of the Apes" (1968) is considered a classic.

Wait, do you mean you're actually going to write an ARTICLE? Yipeeeeeeeee!

That is indeed what I mean. But not today. The stars are not in position. There is, however, a few articles ruminating in my li'l brain and they'll be coming out shortly, I'm sure.

Planet of the Apes IS a classic! When a genre has only been around less than 100 years, a 40 year old movie is pretty old. And what could be more classic than Planet of the Apes? It rocks!

I'll admit that Planet of the Apes has camp value. But that doesn't make it a classic.

The lines stink so much!

Still, you gotta watch it at least once in your life. Perhaps even I have bought into it's so-called classic state while attempting to remain aloof.
