Momentum! Newton’s 1st Law of Motion states that an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion. Without momentum, the earth would not spin, the sun would not rise, and the resting blogger would not rise to blog another day.

“American Pie” by Don McLean, where chevys are driven to dry levies and drunk rednecks complain of death.
Todays microrant is brought to you by:
shallow fuckwads. I am sick and tired of a woman’s merits and personal worth being valued or devalued on the basis of her looks or sexual attractiveness. Yes, people–men and women–have the right to evaluate others as potential sex partners, to say “She’s cute!” or “He’s hot!”, but in any other circumstance, such as a nominee for the United States Supreme Court, his or her merits should never be reduced to his or her “fuckability.”

The Health Care Debate
Do we have a moral imperitive to be healthy? Illness is a social concern. Illness can be contagious, and illness has ramifications than affect not just the immediate family, but the long chains of social networks of which that individual is a part. Insomuch as illness and sickness is a social issue, we do have a moral imperative. What, then, is the line between body ownership (privacy and liberty) and social responsibility: does it end where another’s begins? And how does universal health care fit in this? Abortion? Cloning, stem cells, organ harvesting, medical reasearch, and all other matters of health and body concerns? Hmmm.
