Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.
That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.

I’m also intrigued by which countries voted “abstain.” Weird how the EU doesn’t seem to want to get involved …

Yes, in 2014, a NYC apartment building will have a rich door and a poor door

The complex will mix luxury and affordable units; 219 luxury units overlook the water, while 55 affordable housing units, contained in a separate “building segment,” will overlook the street. Low-income tenants will also be barred from using amenities like a swimming pool and a basketball court on-site.

OMFG HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES REDUX

I have an idea for a project, but I aside from acquiring the first material I don’t know yet how I’d go about completing it. I’d like to take a children’s soundbook (you know, one of the things with buttons on the side that you press for a sound at cues throughout the book) and make it into a Puppycat soundbook, so that when I read Bee & Puppycat comics, every time Puppycat has a line I can hear otherworldly Puppcatisms. That’s the only failing of comic vs. animation in this context for me.

Also, I just think this would be neat to figure out.

Perhaps we should revisit this. Isolation Ostrich could do with some boots, though. (WWII political cartoons by Dr. Seuss)

“And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.”
