Quandries for the week:

1) Why do financial companies like the Citi Group persist on making a bad situation worse? Why do they keep calling me, Ms. Non-Profit Theatre, and asking me if I'd like to change my career options? Wait ... don't answer that last one.

2) Why does itunes persist on selling "album only" songs? I don't want the album, I want the song! Kind of defeats the purpose, really. Record company licensing, perhaps?

3) How do conservatives draw parallels between Obama and Hitler?

4) Why couldn't Susan Coyne have written in a fourth Slings and Arrows season?

5) Why don't people study things they disagree with, rather than make blind, ignorant assumptions? If anything, it could make the argument better... I can argue about why Twilight is inferior reading. I've read all four of the damn things! The least you could do is read a play. Or like, go see it.

6) Why do certain quintessentially "American" things, actually turn out to be Canadian created? WP Kinsella, author of Shoeless Joe, otherwise known as the movie "Field of Dreams," is Canadian. Basketball was invented by a Canadian. Huh.

7) Why is the government offering money for "clunkers," in exchange for more fuel efficient cars, when we should be getting rid of cars together. Band aid solutions hurt my brain!

These are really in no particular order ... and do not need to be answered. They've just been chasing their tail around in my brain for the last week.

Kristin, it really boggles my mind. I mean, it's one thing if the reactionaries are going to compare him to Lenin - if they are going to go nuts on one extreme, that would probably be the right one. But Hitler? Really?
