Celebrate!

Carved a Barack o’Lantern over the weekend.

It’s pretty sweet. Thanks, Better Homes & Gardens!

Yesterday, I accidentally saw the Columbus Day Parade as it passed my office building. I understand being ambivalent about/angry with Columbus and the nations that backed him, but are marching band members universally forbidden from smiling or looking happy?

These were the glummest, most doleful, morose, and grim looking marching bands I have ever seen in my life. All of them, from the New Jersey high schoolers to the military bands, looked absolutely miserable. Is it some kind of silent protest against imperialism and the ravaging of Native American populations, or what? That I could get behind, if the message was clear, but if they just didn’t want to get up that morning, that’s no excuse.
