Earth Day Begins, or: The Earth Is Just a Squirrel Trying to Get a Nut

Earth Day started with me washing dishes while my daughter ate a breakfast of grapes and animal crackers (don't judge me).

NPR was on in the background, and the first story I heard was that the energy bill passed the House of Representatives yesterday and includes drilling in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge (perfect way to celebrate Earth Day). George Bush went to the Smoky Mountains and talked about how the envirnonment is better today than it was in 2001 (Viva Clinton!). This implies that he is responsible for those improvements. What a disgustingly dishonest man he is.

Then, on my way to work, three of my least favorite things all combined in one despicable scene:

1. An SUV with a W '04 sticker (really, you voted for Bush? No, duh!)
2. With a driver who was smoking with a child in the in the car (windows up)
3. Who rolled down her window to throw the cigarette butt out.

or, stated differently:

Selfish, ignorant Earth hater,
Who is unaware of or ignores health risks to her own child, and
Loves to leave problems for other people to take care of.

More later, but for now, enjoy your Earth Day.
