It's Saturday, You're Bored And Alone. Don't Feel Bad, Get Mad! About Things!

News

Okay, so it's Saturday and it must be drinking o'clock hour somewhere, and instead of getting ready to party SOOOO hard and gulp artisanal craftsman cocktails that cost eleventy billion dollars, you are sitting home alone looking at the internets like some kind of person who sits at home alone on a Saturday night looking at the internets. But that's okay! Instead of being all depressed about sitting at home alone on a Saturday night, you can catch up on all the things that made me MAD!!! in case you missed it because you were, I dunno, working or something. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will kill some time, and then you can go back to whatever it is you were planning to do at home alone on a Saturday night on the internets, I don't want to know, that's between you and your god or your hand or whatever.


On Monday, the GOP revealed a new new extra new plan to empower women by telling them they are stupid. Did I get mad about that? Of course I did.

On Tuesday, I learned about some "Christian" college called Gordon, which no one had ever heard of before, begging President Obama to please keep sending federal monies, but without the expectation that Gordon will comply with federal law by not hating The Gay. Did I get mad about that? Obviously.

On Wednesday, I wanted to burn all the things because Megyn Kelly, who knows Santa is white, kids, is apparently not so sure that women's "health" is a real thing. Also, she said a lot of cunty not-true words about Dr. George Tiller (hero!), so yes, I got mad about that.

On Thursday, I offered some friendly advice to Sen. Ted Cruz, who offered some advice to Democrats, which was to stop being SO mean to nuns and bishops by making them, um, live in a world in which women (including all the Catholic kind) use birth control. Can you guess what my advice was? Check it out.

On Friday, I told you about this wingnut wannabe nurse who is suing a health clinic because the health clinic did not want to hire her when she said she would refuse to actually provide women's health care because Jesus or whatever. And yes, I did get mad about that because of course I did.

There you go. What things did you get mad about this week?

Well, goddamn it, a wonderful person we'd never heard of until last night is dead. Lyra McKee was 29, an investigative journalist who specialized in looking at the legacy of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland. She was murdered by someone shooting at police during rioting in Derry, or perhaps Londonderry, depending on who you want to piss off by using either name for the city. The rioting broke out after police "started carrying out searches in the area because of concerns that militant republicans were storing firearms and explosives" in advance of attacks planned to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Police are blaming the violence and McKee's death on the "New Irish Republican Army," a radical republican group formed a few years ago from several smaller groups. Despite the name, the group has no ties to the old Provisional Irish Republican Army, which renounced violence and disarmed in 2005 following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which was supposed to have brought peace to Northern Ireland, and kind of did, at least much of the time.

McKee is being remembered by colleagues and readers as a promising journalist who was expected to go far. A year ago, McKee signed a two-book deal with Faber & Faber; the first of the books, The Lost Boys, an investigation of eight young men who disappeared in Belfast during the Troubles in the '60s and '70s, will be published next year. A 2016 Forbes profile said "McKee's passion is to dig into topics that others don't care about." For instance, CNN reports, McKee spent five years investigating a story about the only rape crisis center in Northern Ireland and its long struggle to regain funding after the government eliminated it.
