Miscellaneous Mental Musings of an Emerging Artist
An observation stolen from my friend John’s LiveJournal this morning:
While the passing of Strom Thurmond is not something I cheer–it takes a special variety of bastard  to get me to cheer a human death, I admit that I do keep feeling guilty flashes of satisfaction, especially in that not only did Thurmond die shortly after the monumental Lawrence v. Texas decision on sodomy, but also shortly after the Grutter v. Bollinger, et. al. decision on affirmative action. Perhaps the old crank just couldn’t take them both at once.
And while it’s crass and tactless to say this, I can’t help but think to myself, “Now that he’s in the grave, ladies and gentlemen, let’s see how many times we can make him spin in it.”
