It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

So when they have those STD commercials, do the indivuduals in them really have genital herpes, or are they just actors? And if they do have them, why are they so open about it. That would seem to decrease any chances in the future. A figurative scarlet A. But I guess what do I know?

I have in my hand right now (well, I set them down as I type) my REM tickets for Rome. They are in Italian other than "REM On Tour." I am beyond excited. I seriously can't believe in 2 1/2 months I will be in Italy. Or get to see REM.

I'm obviously not doing too well in the NCAA bracket work thing, since I picked Syracuse to be in the final 2 with the one poll. (Ok, it was a total emotional pick anyway, but still...) In the other one that I filled out they were final 4 (still going with emotional) ;) The third that I didn't fill out wasn't emotional obviously, since I didn't do it, but still. That is why I can't make these decisions - I base them on what cities I like best or what schools I like best, not on what makes the most sense. Oh, well. Who wants to be sensical?

The CNN poll right now asks "Would you want your relatives to remove the feeding tube if you were in a persistent vegetative state?" I am with the 88% (88%!!) who says yes. I still haven't gone through the Schiavo issue yet. But it's a really sad story.

    A vegetative state. Yes, If I was like Karen Schiavo. No.
    I am a mom of a child with a serious genetic disease and it frightens me that one day someone may have the power to decide that her life is not worth anything.

    I think you must be pretty desperate for a job to take the role of a STD victim.

    Yeah, I always wonder about those actors who say, "living with genital herpes can be difficult." Or "Sometimes, you know, I just can't make it to the bathroom in time." OR "I called the babysitter, got us a room, AND talked to my doctor about Viagra." I'm sure they are all actors, but can you imagine THAT being your claim to fame? Saying, hey family, check me out in my commerical? How funny is that?

    Seeing as how I've come across a ton of those types of commercials, yet couldn't pick any of those actors out of a line-up, I doubt they're social/sex life is in any danger. Still, I know what you're saying. ;-)

    I probably couldn't pick the actors out of a line-up either, but it would come up on conversation.
    "So, what do you do?"
    "Oh, I'm an actor."
    "Really? Have you been in anything I would have seen."
    "Oh, sure, you ever see those genital herpes commercials."
