16. here's what drives me crazy.
that after someone dies they suddenly become the most perfect person who lived.

people turn them into saints--(why? to make themselves feel better? less guilty? to help them grieve?)

well, these "saints" were people. they were human. and had imperfections.

russert pissed me off a lot with his sucking up to the gop and his lame ass way of letting cheney get away with saying whatever the fuck he wanted to, and then selling it to america because he was supposed to be a "trusted" face on television.

why should people who felt like i did turn so fucking hypocritical and suddenly start saying we thought he was great?

you may want to remember people who died went "poop too"
