So maybe I’m not in it to save America but for my own survival. Face it, Ten-uh-see (speak English, dammit) isn’t exactly overly endowed with progressives or liberals or even Democrats. It’s a state where law enforcement officers shoot to kill family pets in front of children. It’s a state that ranks first in corruption. It’s a state where the majority of its citizens don’t miss a Glenn Beck Show. It’s a state where people think Sarah Palin is just so cute and feisty and – dare I say it? – smart.
But I digress. I had all kinds of inflated notions when I started Parsley’s Pics, most of which were scratched early on for being as dimwitted as Going Rogue. The layout was a pretty shade of green with a very bilious shade of mustard-green for accent. Videos and images looked downright putrid. It was back to the drawing board for a theme that was a little more digestible.
But there are more serious matters: racism, hate, hunger, the environment, peace, truth, animal and child abuse, and BP and its devastation of the Gulf coast along with its arrogant and callous disregard for the welfare of the region. And that is only the beginning.
I consider everyone on my blog roll a friend. Your knowledge, kindness and humor have enriched my life and made it all worthwhile. You give me hope for a future devoid of crassness, prejudice and ignorance. Keep up the good work and I will follow your lead, maybe not as eloquently but with as much dedication. Thank you.
Oh, I forgot to mention Lisa the Loon. Maybe just as well.
