A rant at the world

Hey, world! Yeah, you, world, I'm talking to you.

There are people I know, and a lot of them are having supremely sucky times of it right now, and they don't deserve to have so much bad shit happening to them. So: lay off, OK? Treat a bunch of people better. They're good people and they deserve better than what they're getting.

Lately I've sent lots of "thinking of you, hoping you're better" sorts of messages for my friends (not just on my LJ, either) while they try to get past the Bad and get to the Better. I want them to be happy, or at least happier, but a lot seem stuck in a Cycle of Suck.

So, world, you gonna treat my friends better?

Quickly, then back to work, Chris:

I was using LJ's new send-a-message thingy and decided to see if sending a message to chris_walsh (i.e., me) would work. The error message that resulted:
There was an error processing your request:
Stop trying to message yourself, we're not that kind of service.

From New York, home of the world-champion Toronto Blue Jays, It's On-Strike With David Letterman!

The on-strike writers of The Late Show with David Letterman have started a blog:
If the AMPTP forces this strike to continue, might I encounter other celebrities with free food on future picket lines? If that's the case, here is my wish list [in no particular order]:

Tom Selleck: Ham Salad
Greta Van Susteren: Paella [no shellfish, I’m allergic]
Brian Dennehy: Tzatziki
Meat Loaf: Meat Loaf
Lou Diamond Phillips: Corn Nuts
Also quotable:
DISCOVERED AT LAST WEDNESDAY’S PICKET LINES WAS “MIAMI VICE” STAR PHILIP MICHAEL THOMAS. HE HAS BEEN PICKETING SINCE THE LAST STRIKE IN 1988. SEEMS NO ONE TOLD HIM THE STRIKE ENDED.
