I will be boarding a plane tomorrow night for the Blogalicious Conference in Washington, D.C.. It is a conference for and by bloggers of color. I look forward to seeing colleagues there, and I will be staying with a friend who used to work with me at Wired News. Can’t wait to see them…although two red-eye flights? What was I thinking?!
In the meantime, here are some news stories to chew on: I wrote about why asthma sucks for the Moms Clean Air Force. For the first time in my 34 years on this planet, I was prescribed an albuterol inhaler for a cough that stemmed from chest congestion and lasted over a month. It interrupted my sleep, work and exercise routine. It’s almost gone now, but I cannot imagine the ongoing fear of not being able to breathe and having your life put on hold. Ugh.
The MomsRising Facebook page had an interesting discussion yesterday about why families should support the Occupy Wall Street protests. I made sure to add my two cents.
This piece in the Washington Post irked me. Basically, fat people are fat because they will eat junk food no matter what, and the lack of supermarkets, or food deserts, are the concoction of “liberal eggheads.” There was so much b.s. in this article that I don’t know where to start. I will write more on this later…after I calm down.
Well, on that sour note, Happy Hump Day all! What else is in the news? What’s up with you?
