Observations from the Gallery 10.13


For one of the few times since I started writing here I haven’t felt like writing. I guess I was in a bit of a mood as the world just seemed to swirl around me in a dark cloud. The teenage suicides I wrote about (l) followed by a series of anti-gay beatings in New York had the gallery in a melancholy mood and it doesn’t take much to send me over the edge.

Than last night I sat chatting with a friend as I watched the first Chilean miner rescued after over two months trapped in a mine. As my friend said sometimes the world does indeed need good news. That was followed by news that a judge had ordered the DOD to immediately suspend DADT. I’m sure that isn’t the end of DADT but as White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said “time is running out on 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'"

I’ll keep this short because it is my first attempt at posting by Droid and my fingers are getting sore. But here is how the world gets good news by twitter ….

@KingJames 17 Miners Rescued, 16 To Go. Let's Go!!

@MotherJones “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. #dadt

I find myself in a much better mood today.
