Screw it. It’s a holiday weekend, and I’m outta here.

Go here for handy tips from National Review’s John Derbyshire on How To Live With Your Fear Of A Blah Planet.

Sample:

(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.

(10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.

(10c) If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date (neglect of that one got me the closest I have ever gotten to death by gunshot).

(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.

(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.

So, I guess  Mrs. Derbyshire’s plans for  an evening at The Apollo are on hold for the foreseeable future.

You should be reading The American Way of Eating.

Looking forward to going out to see The Raid: Redemption and then staying in to watch Attack The Block this weekend  because, you know, it’s a holy weekend and shit and I don’t have tickets to see The Second Coming.

Creed is going back on tour starting next week and I think we can all agree to blame Obama for that.
