Auto. Tune. Two four letter words that don't go well together.

This evening... the Oscars make fun of the Grammys...


Film is a four letter word. (And the f-flw you expect to hear at the Oscars...)

Pork is a four letter word.

A friend of mine is throwing a pork-themed party... the highlight of which sounds like it will be the bacon brownies. I'm jealous - I can't be there.

Melt is a four letter word.

One of those four letter words that cuts both ways - it is great to see some of this snow melting... but it melts and turns into water... and its cold enough that the water turns into ice...

Gray? Grey? Either one - four letter word.

I've always wondered why there were two spellings for this word, both of which were perfectly acceptable. I can't actually think of another word that is like this.

Lot of four letter words today. Born. Sell. Bowl. Ball. Foot.

I've been told that there was a commercial today interrupted by some sort of sporting event. Or something like that.

Riot is a four letter word.

One of the things about watching the news is watching history in the making. Sometimes you know that what you're watching will be, at best, a footnote in someone's thesis some day in the future.

And days like today you know there will be whole courses and textbooks dedicated to what is going on. Watching the protests in Egypt, demanding rights that so many take for granted, is... amazing and heartwarming and terrifying. Would I be so brave if I was there? How often do I stand up and work and fight for what I believe in and for the rights that all of us should share? Are there quieter riots every day that are just as deserving, but do not get the same attention? What sacrifices are the people of Egypt suffering in hopes of something better?
