Tomorrow is the Michigan Primary, and I don’t care. Yep, the status quo has returned. I’ve got 300 pages of reading for the next week, a class I haven’t even read the syllabus for and the itch to be more creative. And spring break to plan. I was going to visit CA again this year, […]


Michigan decided that instead of holding the presidential primary when they have historically, (which, honestly, I don’t remember when it was) they would move it to earlier in the primary season.

Mickey Mouse isn’t’ supposed to be political. Unless you’re Hamas and you run the TV station that airs Tomorrow’s Pioneers, on al-Aqsa. Interesting. The mouse’s name is Farfur, and apparently he bears striking resemblance to Mr. Mouse. (watch out, Disney’s a stickler for copyright infringement) I understand that it could be an issue of freedom […]
