It was so exciting for my family today. My brother received his official letter to Cornell and not only does he get a full tuition scholarship, he also gets a partial stipend for living expenses! This news came as we were trying to do a family budget to see how this would all work out...! Awesome!
Also...I saw Miss Tanzania in a clip on the Miss World padgent and I think it will be a tragedy if a big modeling company doesn't take her on! She is beauty and raw talent combined and this is her second attempt at a beauty pagent having won the first attempt in Tanzania. I unfortunately- or fortunately do not watch beauty pagents... but i was glad I saw this clip.
Cindy Sheehan has bowed out of fighting to stop the war after many years. The media states that she was quitting because the left wing is as bad as the right wing... I could have told her that..:-)LOL... any way, she had many Sheehan bashers, many of whom are in denial about the reality of the war. First of all, if "freedom" means the ability to say and do as you choose, then why is she called un-American by many when she expresses her views about things? In the interest of fighting terrorists... I trust that a very good attempt is being made in Afganistan...however I do not agree with the reasons for the 'war' in Iraq. That doesn't mean I think the soldiers are dying for nothing because every life has value...it doesn't matter how it is lost! Also this is a grieving mother...let her console herself in the best way she knows how...just like other grieving mothers choose to call their sons heros for dying in the same wars.
The other silly argument (and there are many...like I said, I missed a big chunk of the news when the war was having a vocabulary make over) I hear often about the reason for the Iraqi war was that it was to 'liberate' Iraqi's! While we're at it, why don't we liberate our neighbors Venezuela? or Cuba? oh..wait..why not send in the troops to liberate the Sudanese if we care that much about liberty for all don't they need it more than anyone??? Sanctions wont work as well as just sending in the military to build a wall between the rebels and the darkville sudanese people. Divide and conquer.
Any way...in funny news, Poland is trying to ban Tinky Winky...the teletubby because he is a homosexual!!!
Like you all didn't notice he carried a handbag??
How about Sponge bob? or winnie the pooh?
Why can't we just go back to the days of He-man and She-ra???
