Five things I know are true:
1. Stephen Colbert is da bomb. Seriously--I hurt myself laughing when I watch.
2. Keith Olbermann is almost as great. He certainly speaks the truth as I see it. But I'm beginning to worry that his rants are now easier to discount because they are so pointed. Preaching to the choir?
3. I am a Christian. But when I say that people want to run for the hills. No, I'm not going to try to convert you or preach to you the glory of Jesus, because that stuff squicks me out too. I'm married to a Jewish guy. I swear constantly. But underneath it all, I'm spiritually (and probably morally) a Christian. In fact, I'm even a member of a Methodist Church, come to think of it. But the phrase, "I am a Christian" is now so hateful that I'm not sure how to describe myself--even in my own head.
4. I hate stupid people. Even more, I hate stupid people who are proud of their determined ignorance. "Yap at me all you like about your supposed evidence, I know in my heart what should be true." Some of the ID/Evolution debates I've witnessed have actually made me nauseated.
5. I used to be nicer. I find myself more and more with an almost uncontrollable desire to knock heads together, whereas I remember being much more patient with people in a longish argument. Maybe that's why teenagers sit forever on the bumpers of cars talking about the same topic for hours on end.
OK, my truths are done.
