DW - 10/Martha laugh

A minor health update and some Doctor Who silliness

So I haven't coughed all day. YAY! I'm hopeing that's because I'm getting better, and not because I haven't been outside in the cold at all.

I started reading Doctor Who: Wetworld, by Mark Michalowski today. It's a Ten era book with Martha in it, so I wouldn't have actually purchased it myself, but my brother got it for me for Christmas. Anyway, I'm only a couple of chapters in, but I just came across a short passage that had me cracking up. I wanted to share.

You have got to be kidding me

You know, I've seen some pretty stupid things, but rarely do I stare at the computer screen with my jaw hanging open in complete and utter shock.

Apparently they want to tear down Alcatraz Prison and build a huge spiritual center of peace at government expense. It's absolutely ridiculous. I mean, I understand wanting everything to be lovely and happy and full of kitties and fluffy bunnies, but you can't just bulldoze such a huge piece of our history like that, especially when that huge piece of history brings in TONS of revenue and tearing it down would cost billions. The video even makes it look like the politician trying to stop it is actually the insane one, but he isn't. This is crazy! You just need to see it to believe it.

The really scary part is how many people actually signed that petition.
