Frazzled Friday Fragments
Welcome to my weekly edition of listing some of the thoughts that have been on my mind this week. If you have a few pesky thoughts you would like to unload please join us. We would love to have you.
What do you think of the CEO of Barnes & Noble wanting to buy the 700+ book- stores, take them private and separate from the digital side of the business [nook.] It will be interesting to see how it all unfolds. Looks like those rumors from last year were true after all.
Yahoo has recalled all of their employees that work from home. They claim productivity is down. So much for that experiment.
Have you heard that some lawmakers in Iceland are proposing a ban on internet porn? Wow…
I saw an interview on a local Philly tv show (Dom Giordano’s Show) the other day of a man, Sixx King. I cannot stop thinking about what Sixx had to say. He dressed in a Klan outfit and held a sign that said 3400 Black people were killed by the Klan over a number of years. Today, Black people kill 3400 other black people every six months. He did this in downtown Philadelphia. He is planning on doing the same in Chicago. It is to make “a stance that the number of African-Americans killed has surpassed the number of victims in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and African-Americans have killed more of their own people than the KKK.”
Sixx King’s documentary Mothers of no Tomorrow examines the truly incomprehensible challenges faced by people who have lost loved ones to violent crime.
I cannot get these numbers out of my head. This is insane and heartbreaking. I hope this message resonates.
How about this crazy sequester monster? How about Arny Duncan our Secretary of Education being paraded n the Sunday ‘news’ shows last week and saying 10’s of thousands of teachers were going to receive pink slips this weekend it was a big fat lie. Now senior advisor Gene Sperling has been accused of threatening Bob Woodward, a renowned journalist. Just Wow…
