We interrupt our scheduled program of Viral Monday and Uncommon Verbiage to do a much-needed Public Service Announcement on proper common sense and the internet.
You may have heard recently about a less-than-brilliant quote made by the one and only conservative dingbat Todd Akin, who stated, “First of all, from what I understand from doctors, [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Now as if that weren’t insult enough, he went on to say, “But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. You know I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”
A while back I gave you some tips on blogging; stay fresh, stay fabulous, etc. Well as it turns out, there are a bunch more tips I can give to help bloggers out that I hadn’t thought of!

Hey! My name is Chaz. I graduated from Goucher College this year, left the ‘bubble’, and have since entered the city that never sleeps. I moved into the city, got a job, and learned the subway system in a matter of weeks. After what seems like an insane rollercoaster ride, I figured I’d share some snippets of what city life has been like. I promise every post will be prompt, painless, and very concise (or more accurately, short).
This one, due to some lost time, will be a bulleted list of what you missed!
