1. That would be the “exhausted” reason. Today was the second day in a row we drove 1,000+ miles. Tomorrow we have a comparatively short trip up to Yosemite.


  2. The road trip starts now!

    Memphis, TN - Albuquerque, NM - Grand Canyon - (Barstow, CA, possible stop) - Yosemite National Park - Death Valley National Park - Las Vegas, NV - Zion National Park - Durango, CO - Amarillo, TX - Memphis, TN

    Obviously her name should be something like Bookworm but it’s actually Magic Wanda (can’t imagine how they came up with that) and she only ever appeared in this one issue but her plan is PERFECT.

  7. About goalie Tim Howard’s new record for number of saves in a World Cup game

    Sure, he made 16 saves. That’s great, but it also meant that the rest of the US team sucked badly enough to allow those many, many shots on goal. 

    Just saying.

    I keep seeing stories and photos of this young woman from Texas who posted a bunch of pictures of animals she killed while she was in Zimbabwe to a public Facebook profile she created for the purpose of documented her hunting and conservation efforts.

    Lots of people are, of course, outraged by the photos of dead lions, rhinos, and elephants. And lots of other people are, of course, quick to defend this fantastic young sportswoman for just generally being great in every way. And I’m sure you can guess almost perfectly where these different people fall on the political spectrum in the U.S.

    I’m not a hunter, obviously, and I don’t know much at all about hunting so the whole thing just seems ghastly to me. And, of course, it’s an example of someone whose family has a great deal of wealth flouting that wealth in the most “Look-At-Me; Look-What-I-Did” sort of way. Now, I would probably have the same reaction to people posting photos they took with deer they shot, but there’s also something decidedly shocking about her toothy grins alongside carcasses of endangered animals (even if, as she says, these animals were hunted appropriately, in the proper places and with the proper permits, and, like, the elephant meat was given to grateful villagers (?!)).

    And I suspect she knows this.

    But maybe someone wants to explain to me why this whole thing isn’t the ghastly outrage it appears to be?

    That’s awful. But you know what’s worse than one uniquely despicable American girl killing endangered African animals for sport? The African poachers who persist in hunting their own native species to extinction, and the foreign buyers who provide motivation by creating demand for ivory and exotic pelts. If this story goes no further than “Look at the terrible rich kid and her atrocious deeds” then it completely fails. The important aspect here isn’t her privilege, it’s the background setting of a tragically dwindling population of some of the Earth’s most unique mammals. 

    Imagine the bald eagle going extinct because rich Russians paid high dollar for the bird to be stuffed and hung on their living room walls, while American hunters happily obliged.

    The girl in this story is disgusting, but the larger context is even worse.
