Wake Me Up When September Ends

Well, in the month of September, I learned, among other things, that just because I CAN do 45 squats in a row, doesn't mean that I SHOULD. Words of experience, people. Heed them.

I have several social and political issues about which I should like to write on this blog, but for which I never seem to have inspiration when I am at my computer. Among these are:
-The thing about which everyone has an opinion these days - Ahmadinejad speaking at US university.
-Humpbacked whales, evolution, and the limits and hypocrisy of practicing scientists.
-Burma/Myanmar, and the fact that despite their claims, world leaders don't really want freedom and justice for all oppressed peoples. They are interested in helping only those whose oppression is not beneficial to themselves.
-The ridiculous and pointless political system in the US.

However, I don't know if I will have the patience or fortitude to write about those topics. Some of them just make me really irritated.

Any votes for topics you'd like to have addressed? Feel free to write in nominations for something not covered above.

Personally, I'm interested in the Myanmar/Burma oppression issue and the limits and hyprocrisy of scientists, but they all sound interesting. I love your rants.. insightful and chalk-full of wit! :o)
