I'm not a Hallmark-y kind of guy, as you may have guessed from the other content in this blog. Nor am I really one to tell you how to think, what to believe, or how to spend your hard-earned. All I can tell you is that I've been glued to CNN for days, and just like Two and a Half Men before it, it inspired me to do math:
1 fast-food lunch/dinner [or Starbucks for the coffee fans among you] + 1 drink on St. Patty's Day = about $10.
Given how easy the above two items are for me to live without, I took the $10 and did this with it instead, because the good folks in Japan need a bite and a stiff drink far more than I do. Purified water counts as a drink in this case, folks.
Again, I'm not here to wax sanctimonious; like everything else in this blog, I'm just telling you what I did. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled music geekery and cultural skewering tomorrow.
