In mere minutes your Crusader shall depart for his senior year at Assumption, early for student government training. A week and more without anime is a sad prospect, especially since I Cardcaptor Sakura was just getting good. The anime, which I selected as a counterbalance to the manlier Cowboy Bebop, is lethally cute. Just take a look at Sakura Kinomoto with her plush companion Cerberus! Bright-eyed Sakura-chan is shown in her grade school uniform below. Like her, I am quite happy. It will be nice to see all my friends, and return to a place where the Catholic faith is treated with greater respect than in Northampton. Also, no more TV to annoy me.
(The superficiality of the Ground Zero mosque debate was genuinely getting on my nerves. The Left defended the dubious project from a newfound commitment to religious freedom, and the Right pretended that one can rationally oppose the mosque without opposing the spread of Islam. Besides the usual wimpery, they pretended to merely act in the interests of the more sensitive 9/11 families; no one, of course, ever noted that these victims were either being irrational and therefore had no worthwhile input, OR that opposition to Islam was their motive, and therefor the motive of those speaking on their behalf. Me, I oppose the mosque, though I acknowledge that the presence of devout believers of any faith may be a boon to that godless city.)
Yes, enough of that! Before I go, here's "Catch You Catch Me", the opening theme to Cardcaptor Sakura. Watch it, it's good!
