a little fun
May 6, 2009
While I would describe myself as a bit of a news junkie, I haven’t done much talking about that sort of thing in this space. Don’t know why. Maybe cuz the surest way to get hate mail is to use words like “mentally ill” or “retard.” Not that I would ever do that.
But this little blurb today just caught my eye, and I thought you’d like to see it:
TEHRAN, Iran – An American journalist convicted by an Iranian court of spying for the U.S. has ended her hunger strike for health reasons, her father said Wednesday.
So, let me get this straight . . . this woman ended her HUNGER strike for . . . “health” reasons?
Not exactly arguing from a position of strength there, is she?
“Woah! I am REALLY hungry! And also? I don’t think this hunger strike thing is doing great things for my overall health. Plus, it’s messing with my complexion.”
What? I’m not allowed to make a little fun?
