Katie Couric's not all that interesting

Yeah, I watched the CBS Nightly News tonight, but I didn't think Katie Couric was the one to see. I really liked hearing Morgan (Super Size Me) Spurlock talking about the opposite of red states and blue states: purple America.

Truth is, most of us don't live on the extreme ends they like to portray, the majority of us are camped out here in the middle. But nobody wants to hear what we have to say because we don’t foam at the mouth, call your mama names or say anything that’s gonna juice the ratings.

To read his whole essay, click here. Don't lie. You agree.

Of course I agree. On both counts. A) Katie Couric? I do not care and B) I'm neither extreme right nor extreme left, and telling me that I have to be one or the other is stupid. I'm purple damnit, and proud of it!

Thank you for visiting me earlier.

So are you planning on participating in Nanowrimo this year? Because I am and I'll totally be your support group. Or part of it, anyway. I love it. I haven't much of an idea for this year's, just some images that stick in my head, but I lived off the energy for months after.

I'm also Sallyacious there. Nanomail me and I'll happily add you to my friends list.
