In GOOD news, Nicole Fox from ANTM booked Alexander McQueen!

So, I'm kind of a heartless bastard. You know that. I'm not given to romanticizing disaster & aid relief. Sure, good idea, & I support it, but I'm not what you'd call bleeding heart. I am also not, however, dumb enough to pretend that...it is Haiti's fault? Now I'm not talking about crazy old racists like Pat Robertson: I'm talking about ignorant people like Paul Shirley. Paul writes that he can't understand "[h]ow could humans do this to themselves?" by which he means "I am unable to understand the legacy of slavery & colonialism." Lots of stuff about stopping breeding, too: reminds me of Andre Bauer. So. I wrote another letter! I find that angry letter writing comes in jags, & I guess I on one now! I parodied the "open letter" he wrote to Haiti. Letter I sent to him at mysocalledcareer@gmail.com is as follows:

Dear Paul Shirley –

First of all, kudos on developing the the dumbest post on the Haiti disaster. Your commitment to human rights, historical perspective, slavery apologetica & colonial impact should be applauded.

As we prepare to assist you in this difficult time, a polite request: If it’s possible, could you not open your mouth to spout off ill informed & poorly considered opinions? Could you not resort to the creation of flimsy straw man arguments & ignorant statements? & could you maybe travel in time & ask your parents to use a condom this once?

Sincerely,

The Rest of the World
