When people around the world are suffering, I find it helps to focus intensely on my own personal fears and desires, my own schemes and regrets. After a few minutes of this meditation, I am reminded of how saintly I am and how I deserve everything to go exactly my way, and also how much I am victimized by the unsaintly and the undeserving all around me.
Oh, sure, you may say: “Don’t you realize that right now – RIGHT NOW – there are people suffering tremendously? And you – YES, YOU – have a great deal of power to stop it? Much more power than you are led to believe?”
Well, you know what I say to you? I say:
“Shut your filthy mouth I’m going to Comic-Con!! Huzzah!!!”
Tonight is Preview Night – a sneak preview of the whole shebang, from 6pm – 9pm, for industry professionals and geeks with 4-day passes. Even though me will be attending as a member of the liberal media, me will probably not be able to make it – unless we can airlift our troops out of the Los Angeles Metro area well before 6pm, and that doesn’t seem likely under the present dire circumstances.
I still have to pack, you see. And at this point, I really don’t even have clean laundry. Do hotels usually have a coin-operated washer & dryer for you to use. I don’t want to have to take stuff to a dry cleaner if I can help it.
Do you think Sergeant Rock ever used a coin-operated washer & dryer? I bet he never, ever did. I bet he washed his clothes in the blood of his enemies.
even more Comic-Con 2006
