Not Wanting to Write About Nothing Good
American Spectator ^ | April 30, 2013 | Quinn Hillyer

I just don’t wanna.

I don’t wanna write about whether to treat homosexual relationships as “marriage,” and I don’t wanna see lawmakers do anything about it. Just a quarter century ago, just about nobody had even dreamed of such a thing as “gay marriage.” Why don’t we leave the law alone as it is, leave people free to do what they want to do behind closed doors as long as no innocents get hurt (and as long as they don’t “scare the horses”) — and have everybody, including heterosexuals, stop talking in public about what they do in the realm of sex, or about with whom they do it? Paris Hiltons and Kim Kardashians of the world, stop putting your sex life on the Internet for all to see. Lena Dunham, get a life. Sandra Fluke, get a clue. Jason Collins, keep playing basketball and otherwise just shut up. We don’t need to know.

It’s “Not wanting to write about ANYTHING good” not “nothing good”. Sheesh

That was a deliberate literary device. If the column was written as you want it to read it would be sterile.

Since FR is having its loading problem again, I’m reading more articles at the source links. This has some advantages ... how many of us read the whole article, huh?

But on the other hand, I’m about to go to “Daily Mail” and read celebrity gossip, and it’s the Robinsons’ fault!

Don't feel bad, I work for a bandleader 63 years of age who "scents" me a weekly song list.
