Desires to Write

So, I’d like to write an entry, but there isn’t much going on right now that interests me right now.

The biggest, most interesting thing going on in the media right now, in my opinion, has got to be the whole Boston v. Aqua Teen Hunger Force debacle. This has got to be the most ridiculous case of paranoia I’ve ever seen.

City officials in Boston should be the ones facing trial, not these two guys. They caused mass hysteria and wasted tons of taxpayer money with this whole affair. I especially love their insistence on calling a glorified Lite Brite a “Hoax Device.” Especially since their whole case depends on the premise that light up advertising boards with cartoon characters and D-Cell batteries somehow look like bombs.

To be honest, I think this is one of the more¬†interesting things to happen in our country for a long time. If these guys get any sort of punishment, it’ll be a serious injustice.

I’d like to contribute something to the discussion about it but honestly, I don’t think there is anything left to add.

For those uninformed, the best place I’ve found to get info regarding the topic has been Boing Boing.
