The following cartoon was in Newsweek's recap of the year's best political quotes and cartoons and it gave me a chuckle. It's too true. North Korea and it's nuclear building and testing scares the hell out of me, they actually have WMD, yet we aren't covering this issue enough.
It also bugs me that it seems we'll never know who killed Jon Benet. Her little adult face has been staring at me from supermarket rags for over a decade now and frankly I need closure.
On a totally unrelated note, my mother arrives in California today for a 5 day visit. I'm really looking forward to showing her my life out here so when we talk, which is all the time, she'll have a better idea. So far we have a girls brunch in Malibu planned with friends, walking around Venice, bowling and other activities. We're skipping the CA tourist stuff since she's been to LA and Santa Monica area a few times already, just not since I lived here. I'll report back later.
PS: My friend and former coworker, PJ, is in the NY Times article: Beginning the Climb to the Penthouse. He beat me, since his NY Times interview has photos of him, damn. You can see mine here though ;)
