Case in Point

One of my favorite rants to bring up in conversation (though I don't go on about it in LJ posts very much) is how screwed up our country is when it comes to dealing with violence and sex. I think the recent decision by Megaplex Theaters owner Larry Miller illustrates my rant perfectly without having to type it out: his theaters will show Saw IV but won't show Zack and Miri Make a Porno because of "graphic nudity and graphic sex."

In short: torture porn good, comedies about sex bad.

Can't Be in Philly for the Parade, But...

For some reason (and I'm certainly not complaining), I am able to access the MLB.com live feed of the Phillies parade coverage from work today. Major Defense Contractor's firewalls aren't keeping it out like they do with most streaming video and audio. Now that the players are in Citizens Bank and the final proceedings underway, my productivity is being shot to hell. 

But, I don't care.
