Read this post and respond to it.

As I sit in my sister’s house in Salt Lake, listening to my family discuss the tragedies of the tornados in the south (my dad has been complaining nonstop that all the coverage of the royal wedding and Obama’s birth certificate is trivializing the large death toll in Alabama and its surrounding areas), I think to myself “my site hasn’t had much traffic the past few days, and that’s a shame, though it does seem rather pointless to worry about that with everything else this week, and also this is a very long sentence (so long, in fact, that this one sentence constitutes a whole paragraph).” Read the rest of this entry
