yesterday’s weirdness

Scrolling through the NYTimes headlines yesterday, and seemed to have fallen down the rabbit hole.

Headlines/stories I never expected to see:

Newt Gingrich has apparently gained more support from Republicans than Mitt Romney. Yet another example of the dangerous consequences of the average American’s short attention span.

The United States is going to support gay rights abroad. Seems like they should start by supporting gay rights here, but I guess something is better than nothing.

Angelina Jolie has now directed a movie. I would have guessed that good directing would require a certain level of acting ability, but I guess Clint Eastwood has already disproved that theory, so maybe I’m wrong.

Curious to see what headlines I run across today. Sarah Palin admits she’s a brainless, ambitious twit and is better suited to relative obscurity than to the presidency? CEOs across the country agree they only need to make 30 times the salary of their average worker? Countries at upcoming world environmental conferences agree that it’s not a good idea if the world’s glaciers melt and/or move at alarming speeds?

One can hope, I guess.
