#3815: Islamic terrorism strikes again

The perpetrators of Monday's attack in Boston? Islamic Chechens, in the US legally.

Boston is locked down because ohmehgerd, terrorists!

"How do you think the Mercedes-driving liberal feels now that he’s been coexisted into a hijacking with a sterling member of the coexistence shock troops?"

JayG, like several others, discusses the uselessness of laws in preventing criminal acts. Massachusetts has highly restrictive gun laws, yet look at what happened.

NYT is upset that Fox News covered a fertilizer plant explosion in Texas that leveled half a town, rather than concentrate on Obama's gun control bill.

Vox Day talks about George RR Martin and Game of Thrones (or whatever the series is called) and how it's essentially a leftist fantasy land. "So, amorality, secularism, nihilism, feminism, perversion, and a cleverness fetish."

Everything he says about the series is spot on. The TV show is entertaining, at least.

Mrs. Fungus reported that she saw snowflakes as she was leaving for work today. Whee! Snow in mid-April! That global warming sure is getting bad, isn't it?

...also, the Citrus Grove--where she used to live--flooded so badly they were taking people out in boats. I wasn't terribly surprised; the western suburbs of Chicago got pounded by rain all day Tuesday.

Getting to sleep last night required a whole dose of Xanax, so naturally today I feel like gravity's been turned up about 15%. Well, it's the first time in a while that I've needed the stuff, so what the hey. I do have to go pick up the refill. *sigh*

Because of the anxiety attack, I didn't get to sleep until after 5 AM. I woke up to a strange sound around 8 AM; it sounded like someone was tapping on the side of the house, but there wasn't anyone outside. Back in bed, fell asleep pretty quickly, at least until the alarm went off for Mrs. Fungus.

Then, as I was doing my pre-blog surf, after Mrs. Fungus left for work, I hear this weird screeching noise from the west end of the house. Turns out Mrs. Fungus accidentally trapped one of our cats in her closet. "That's what you get," I told him as I let him out.

I finished reading The Shining yesterday. The book's ending was better than the one Stanley "megamind of the universe" Kubrick had in the movie.

I'm trying to come up with some new ideas for short stories, but the best one I've had so far doesn't seem to work very well. Argh etc.

So, WTF, more home-brewed Garfield Minus Garfield, in lieu of further content.

Guess I'll have to upload more of them soon. That last one is #117 for me, and right now I'm standing at 180 strips.

But not now, because Xanax, and I still have to bring up the garbage can. *sigh*
