Tired, tired, tired and exhausted, there was nothing more than I wanted to do last night than go to bed early and get some sleep. I know, my Friday's are pretty exciting. Could have done it too, but damn kids across the courtyard threw a party last night. Not sure which neighbors, but I'm guessing they weren't the cool, hipster one's as the musical selection was pretty much your generic, run-of-the-mill party mix tape favored by every white, twentysomething Yupster- a little ABBA, some old skool Madonna, and lots of '80's tunes. Yawn, yawn, and yawn. Not that I'm into the whole party with a DJ "spinning" rare Bulgarian dance tunes, but does "Come on Eileen" really get the party started?
So yeah, I woke up this morning with my full snark on. Even after finding out that Italy was beaten by Croatia.
Little did I know how much my mood was justified when I went to get the paper and saw this as the big, huge headline:
Senate cuts boost in global AIDS relief White House persuades GOP to await new plan
Whaaa? What, then was the whole point of the Paul O'Neill/Bono Africa 2002 tour? Was it just so Paul could tell his grandkids he hung out with Bono? Is it because the government's not gonna be able to afford it when they get rid of the "Death Tax" and helps the oppressed trust-fund babies have bigger trust funds?
Maybe Bush's new plan will be like his Global Warming Plan- diss any current proposals, make a big deal about not doing something until his government issues a new report, have the report published and have it accidentally agree with all current science and beliefs, then dismiss it just something done by a bunch of "bureaucrats" and ignore it forever and ever until the melting ice caps starts flooding the Bush compound in Kennebunkport?
Oh, and then there's this- Walnut Creek passed a law banning public urination, but once again, the Board of Supervisor's in SF refused to pass a similar law. Because banning people from taking shits on city streets is anti-poor. The plan, apparently, was detoured by Supervisor Chris Daly who apparently had enough time to shelve the proposal in between being arrested at a protest and telling all the cops who arrested him that they can't arrest him because he's a Supervisor.
Here's a quote- "If you are not clean and well-dressed, it is very difficult to gain access to toilets in the city." Well, yeah. Because if you are not clean, you have a habit of making a mess and ruining toilets for those who are clean and well-dressed. Or, in other words, is there anyone out there who willingly goes into the toilet on 16th and Mission and would they do it without loading up on dissenfectants?
But that's not even the worst news that there is. There is, of course, this:
