It's a good thing it's Tuesday, because I'm really angry and frustrated in real life and need to do some projecting. This is as good a place as any, I suppose.
Women in Texas have enough to deal with as it is. Now, they have to worry about being pulled over and cavity searched on the side of the road.
And no, I'm not kidding.
As if the idea of it all isn't enough, the troopers aren't changing gloves between searches. And I just threw up in my mouth a little.
It's unconstitutional and a huge violation of these women's rights, but last time I checked, Texas didn't much care about women's bodies - just the babies that might occasionally be on the inside.
Cancer Can Suck It
Logan Stevenson died Monday, just hours after his mother carried him down the aisle in the ceremony where she married his father. He was two years old, and the ceremony was moved up when doctors gave his parents the very grim news that his time was even shorter than they expected.
I am heartbroken for his family.
I am angry that he died.
I am upset that there are children like him who die every day in this country of cancers that we can't cure.
I am frustrated that children's cancer research is woefully underfunded.
If you can, please consider giving to St. Baldrick's. This link will take you to the team Donna's Good Things, in honor of Mary Tyler Mom's sweet girl.
Instead of being angry just now, I will do what MTM always urges us to do.
I will choose hope.
