Writer's Block: Television! Is there anything it cannot do?

What is the best new TV series of 2010?

That sit com where the dad is always doing or saying something stupid but really has a heart of gold but is lucky that his wife is wise and rational and always saves him from doing something really stupid.

Or else that one where a crime happens at the start of a show and officials discover that someone really unexpected is guilty of it.

Wait! No, the one where you see real life attractive but stupid people acting like morons and creating a lot of drama.

And So It Goes

The Rape People are blogging about me again.


".... the only authority undergirding his crass fear-mongering that women don't report their own rapes because they suppose they won't be believed is it's repeated, zombie-like incantation by the gender-divisive purveyors of lock-the-doors, hide-the-daughters Chicken Little rape hysteria, who see sexual predation oozing from every male zipper. You know, the same folks who encourage young women to displace their anxieties about the consequences of consuming what is in the bottle on to rumors of what could be put there by someone else. That crowd."

Of course they've now said they'll delete any comment from me, Tizzy or anyone else who comes over from my blog, even though I've let every crazy comment they've made here stand.

My favorite part is when the dude explains that he's not going to let me or anyone who disagrees with him comment because he considers his post a "teaching moment."

It's taught me he's afraid to have people who disagree with him comment on his blog, but I'm not afraid to let people who disagree with me comment on mine.

P.S. What do you suppose Freud would say about his use of the phrase, "sexual predation oozing from every male zipper."

I mean, I'm sure that got some of you hot and bothered!
