My cynical side looks at the US government as a slowly moving machine.
My optimist side views accessible movements like this as the way forward - giving the slow machine the push it needs to continue foward.
Wild Weather Warning: Tornadoes, Heavy Snows, High Winds

While a “Minnesota winter that won’t end is expected to dump up to a foot of snow in the Twin Cities by Thursday night,” people in Missouri and Arkansas are “grappling with the aftermath of a series of storms that spawned at least two…
Aiyo! Stay safe and warm Minnesotans!
I’m drawn to places that beguile and inspire, sedate and stir, places where, for a few blissful moments I loosen my death grip on life, and can breathe again. It turns out these destinations have a name: thin places. — Thin Places, Where We Are Jolted Out of Old Ways of Seeing the World - NYTimes.com
I just want to buy a pair of these socks…how long must I wait? Just start production…I swear, we’ll all buy a pair.

I hit the border last weekend, so I am legally allowed to stay in the country for another 30 days. The only proof I have (other than a passport stamp) that I was technically in Oman is this Duty Free receipt. Gummy bears and a Hello Kitty candy, FTW!

This was a frustratingly perfect moment in film.
“So much has been written about those few words at the end that Bob whispers into Charlottes’ ear. We can’t hear them. They seem meaningful for both of them. Coppola said she didn’t know. It wasn’t scripted. Advanced sound engineering has been used to produce a fuzzy enhancement. Harry Caul of “The Conversation” would be proud of it, but it’s entirely irrelevant. Those words weren’t for our ears. Coppola (1) didn’t write the dialog, (2) didn’t intentionally record the dialogue, and (3) was happy to release the movie that way, so we cannot hear. Why must we know? Do we need closure? This isn’t a closure kind of movie. We get all we need in simply knowing they share a moment private to them, and seeing that it contains something true before they part forever.” — Roger Ebert on Lost in Translation
