Jackass of the Week: Rush Limbaugh:
Some of you may feel that this is too political for Daring Fireball. But I’m not calling Limbaugh a jackass because I disagree with his politics on this issue. I’m calling him a jackass — and it’s taking a lot of restraint not to call him something far worse — because his response to Fox’s honest, genuine advocacy regarding an important, serious issue is one of the lowest, most demeaning cheap shots I’ve ever seen.
(Via Daring Fireball.)
Rush Limbaugh is what is wrong with the political system in America. Cheap shots, personal attacks. Folks, let’s work on the problems, eh?
Stupid stupid American political system.
So, the convention was a blast.. even though it ended almost two weeks ago, I’m still thinking and considering what I learned. I plan this weekend on writing a wrap up post, but for now I leave you with my favourite song I heard that weekend, by The David Crowder Band, called I Saw The Light – on iTunes.
Link to my Vox Blog with the song you can listen to for free.
Click through to see a few more pictures.. bandwidth is bad here, so I’ll save more uploading for when I get home.
I arrived in Austin last night, flights were good. I’m sitting in my first session, which is about to start.. free wireless in the convention center, which isn’t overrun by 4000 Mac developers.
This Thursday Jennifer and I along with 3 others from our church are heading to Austin, TX for the National Youth Workers Convention. Ya.. they have a convention for youth workers. Granted Jennifer and I don’t get paid (with money), but Jim tells me this thing is huge, like thousands of people. Like WWDC sized.
I’m not sure what to expect – the only convention I’ve been to has been MacWorld.
I’m planning on blogging my thoughts on the convention here, so stay tuned.
