And other happy thoughts….
This morning I interviewed with the ACLU …. Do you get to say you’ve been hired even if its unpaid? Do you say “I got hired” or do you say “they agreed to let me come and help them” hmm…. the latter makes me sound like I have self esteem issues…. but in any case I get to do real life lawyer stuff and help with projects particularly dealing with equality in the public school system. This makes it easier for me to not teach this year because somehow or other I’m still helping……
Mansoor showed me this article about the way people see Muslims. According to the article, tolerance has increased. They point to the fact that Americans did not retaliate by behaving in a vigilante manner towards American-Muslims in the USA after the London bombings. I dont know if thats a case of “if it didnt happen here we don’t care” or if it really is that people are realizing their next door neighbor who works at the bank and whose kid is in national honor society is not someone to take their anger out on. I sincerely hope it’s the latter.
I’m publishing a few articles. Some are on fine tuning’s website, but I’ll share this article from Happy News that just got published today. They got my name wrong, hopefully they’ll fix it soon, but it’s a story that you won’t be surprised I wrote about!
And finally I know the baby Panda was born a while ago but I had to share a picture of him because he’s just too cute for words….. I think a baby panda would make a great pet…. how can anyone be mean or evil if you bust out with your baby panda and put it in their lap… now there’s the key to world peace I tell you!
