Not Hiding, Just Tired (CS)

So, what is up with the lack of substance on Whippersnapp these days? Believe it or not, i actually got this question a couple times (readers? who knew?). Well i can't speak for my co-hort, but i'll tell ya what, folks.... I'm just tired.

I mean, what else is there to say? How much can you hop up and down and scream and shout until you're even getting on your OWN nerves? Some people have no problem being angry their whole lives. And don't get me wrong, it's not as if i'm ready to ignore injustice and completely calm down and tune out. It's just the act of expressing my indignation that seems to have run its course and become relatively pointless.

And it's not as if anyone with half a mind needs all that much help recognizing the problems out there. There's no need anymore to point out that the administration (and much of congress) is composed of lying crooks when everyone knows it already. Humor poking fun of/at Bush has run dry because, as Brendan put it, he makes the joke for you, taking all the fun out of it.

If you want to know what's gone wrong, just read the headlines (just remember to diversify your news sources, including The Daily Show and even The Onion). If you want to laugh at the President, just be patient, he's bound to make a semi-illiterate speech or comment sometime in the next week or so.

I'm sure, even having said this, I'll find moments to slap at the keyboard, whether angrily or in jest. And the comics roundup will return and be around as long as i'm not working the occasional 60 Hour week. Just have some faith, young lads and lasses. And lighten up (i'm tryin).
