Jun 27 Prettybetsy commented on New York Times to Restructure Online Content.
Just so they don't mess with Krugman. I'd hardly ever read the Times if it weren't for links from his blog.
May 17 Prettybetsy commented on Hillary Clinton: "A Fucking Hawk And a Neocon".
I'm a woman, a feminist, and a graduate of a fancy private college (I didn't know better back then), but I've never felt that the pushy, corporate, Sheryl Sandberg types had my back. I wasn't excited about Hillary in 2008 and I'm still not. But I'm going to vote for her, if it comes to that, over whoever the Republicans pick. I may be a weird loser, but I'm not a dumb weird loser. I wish it were Elizabeth Warren's turn, but I don't think it is yet.
Apr 9 Prettybetsy commented on How Metal Is Your Period?.
65/105: very fucking metal. Glad to know I'm not the only one on some of those questions, from the looks of it.
Mar 31 Prettybetsy commented on OKCupid Posts Note Informing Firefox Users of Mozilla CEO's Anti-Gay Donation, Urges Users to "Consider Different Software".
No browser that I know of is made by good guys. I can't even remember the outrage that made me switch from Chrome to Firefox a few months ago, but it felt pretty outrageous at the time. The different browsers are like deck chairs on the Titanic.

Beautiful.

This is why we can't have nice things.
Mar 15 Prettybetsy commented on Was I Born on the Worst Day in Music History?.
For me, the good news: ?uestlove. The bad news: Paul Stanley.

@4 [spoiler] his wife came back and now works with him.

@25 But they couldn't agree. I'm not saying they weren't a bunch of racists--I have no idea. Having been on a couple of juries that didn't impress me, I'm surprised that any jury ever reaches the right verdict.

@5 They found him guilty of attempted murder because he could have killed the other people in the car. They couldn't decide if the one murder he did commit was murder one. Part of the problem is the Stand Your Ground law: all he had to be was afraid in order to justify shooting a mouthy teenager.

As someone who has weird issues with eggs, 80% of the time but not 100% (it's too boring to go into detail here), I'm inclined to let the gluten-free fad slide even if it is just a glorified eating disorder for most people. Who am I to tell people they don't feel better when they don't eat a certain thing?
