Drop everything! Pay no attention to the Crimea vote! Ignore the foot of snow that is pummeling your city! Experts now can reveal they know nothing about the missing Malaysian plane! Moreover, we may never know! As this is clearly the biggest story since the Lindenburg baby, all cable news stations will devote all their time to this story. Is anyone else sick of this? I hate to be all callous and do sympathize with the people whose loved ones were aboard (and I share the curiosity) but how much money are we spending to learn the fate of 239 people? How could these resources be used to help, I dunno, the people of Syria? Of course, my main concern of the day is the rain that is coming down on my current home town. My first thought when I woke up was the excitement that comes only from knowing the universe has finally found a way to remove the piles of bird shit that covers my car. My life is full of excitement. And if you are in the Gainesville, Florida area, I will be performing at 1982 on Tuesday night. Last thought: Kudos to Guinness for dropping out of the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Manhattan. The official parade committee refused to include the Stonewall Inn and Guinness released a statement: “We were hopeful that the policy of exclusion would be reversed for this year’s parade. As this has not come to pass, Guinness has withdrawn its participation.” Back to your regularly scheduled programming…
Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks the controversial “stop & frisk” policy is the reason for the drop in crime in New York City. I don’t buy it.

This is the least intellectual thing you will read this week and I am sorry. Personally, this has been an amazingly rough week for me. But then we have the news. Anthony Weiner. Ariel Castro. Beyonce’s new haircut! It’s been chaos. Chaos! So I went back to where the internet made sense: cute videos of cats doin’ stuff. And you need to watch this. Really, you do.
