The High Priestess fears the loss of intelligence...

I've spent the better part of an hour scouring "most recently published blogs" and have realized that I really have no significant contribution. I have read political blogs, religious blogs, blogs containing damning diatribe about whether Mel Gibson is a Hollywood sell-out because he caved to being "PC" when it came to his new movie "Passion" (he hired actors to portray "sympathic Jews" to keep from being labeled an anti-semite). I have read blogs discounting Janene Garofalo's qualifications to be a guest co-host on PBS's Frontline (oh please, shut the fuck up; the girl knows of what she speaks), and blogs bemoaning the homophobic tendancies of our country's elected leader (one word; agreed). I have read blogs which detailed the MURDER on Sunday of a Reuters photojournalist by US soldiers who thought his camera was a rocket launcher and therefore riddled him with machine gun bullets. On a lighter note, I have learned about the sXe movement which endorses the "Straight Edge" lifestyle of no drugs, no alcohol, no sex before marriage. I guess if you give it a funky logo and call it a "movement" then it makes it cool. Otherwise, you're a dweeb. For the most part, it seems that today I've visited blogs of people who seem to be card carrying members of MENSA.

I guess my point is this; I DO feel I've received an education of sorts today. It's probably one of the reasons why I can justify having a computer. On the other hand, I can't help but feel that the IQ test I took that told me that I was 9 points shy of "genius" lied to me. As time goes by, and the prospects for actually finding a job seem to wither, I can almost feel the personality and intelligence factor being leeched out of my system. But, I have the comfort of knowing that Sonic the Hedgehog will be the new anime addition to the fall Saturday Morning lineup. Therefore, I continue to learn.
