I will not kill him with a sword. I will not kill my Scottish lord. I will not stab him in the back. I do not want to, Lady Mac.

Amen.
Then there's the stuff that fills our houses—the calibre of which is the subject of intense, unspoken competition among my peers and neighbours. During my entire childhood, spent in a comfortable ...

Food for thought.
 
To raise awareness about the #millionhoodies march and general online campaign I've posted the picture below on my social networks. This was the response on one of them.

[REDACTED]: Um no. This guy IS suspicious. I would totally purse clutch and traffic dodge to avoid and I'm not sure of the message here. March for hoodies?

[REDACTED]: I grasp the point racism is rasicm, no dress code needed. But we need to watch our PR and how our message is distributed. The above is not helping or helpful to disseminate the message. It's an image of a thug in a hoodie. Treyon was not a thug, he was a child and this is the image that should be used. And the main goal is to make the "point" as EASY to grasp as possible. We can march and protest and leverage petitions, but if our attitude is, "read between the lines to get my point", then we move no one. We also need to utilize the most powerful, personable images we have. This guy is not one of them.

Elon James White: Oh HI [REDACTED] I'm the image of the "Thug in a hoodie." Do you know who I am? Do you know what I do? You said that THAT's an image of a thug in a hoodie and TREYVON WASNT A THUG. Ma'am, I'm not a thug. I'm an engaged political commentator with a background in I.T. I throw dinner parties and build studios from scratch. But YOU saw a thug in a hoodie.

Do you understand the problem now?

Go forth and Platypi!
"Can I promise you that I'm going to get better? No. This is what you get, you know. This incomplete person, with toothbrushes, and with rubber gloves, and with so much love for you. But if that's not...

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.. Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Sena...
