I just noticed that (1) it’s been a little over a month since my last post and (2) that post was number 300. I figure I ought to have at least one entry each month, just to keep your attention, right?

I saw part of this “Alter Eco” program on one of the Discovery channels the other day, but couldn’t stand the host. Then, yesterday, I ran across this piece in Slate about the latest Discovery channel spin-off, Planet Green. When I first saw ads for the network, I thought, “That seems potentially interesting, but also really pretentious.” I think the best line in the Slate article is “I for one want to go out and kill a dolphin.” If the author is looking to put together a crew to do so, this is my official request to join. I’ll bring the harpoons!

I have so far avoided looking at any of the comments on the article. Mary & I have talked about the fact that everything on the internet apparently needs to be discussed by the unwashed masses, and I’ve decided it’s in my best interest to ignore that discourse whenever possible. If I look, I might be tempted to contribute – and then who’s the ass?
