Sweet nothing in my ear & cochlear implant

[link] the discussion about cochlear implants going on right now, I'll be the one to tell you that I don't care whether someone chooses to get an implant or not.

analysis of thyself
Raining in the Northwest Earlier tonight I posted a comment on Chris Leon's blog regarding censorship.A few things went through my mind shortly afterwards--were my comments made in haste?

Hiatus and etc..
Raining in the Northwest It's been awhile! It's exactly what I feared I'd do--start something on a whim, keep at it for a short while, then suddenly just abandon it. I had on my mind the past week to put in an entry on my blog, mostly because it was due. The thing is, I just couldn't really think of a good topic to write about.

Forward Thinking--the Yin to Yang of Deficit Thinking
Raining in the Northwest Everyone's a Deficit Thinker. Period. Every since the term was coined and disseminated throughout the blogsphere--I have seen nothing short of a witchhunt against each other--as though we are eating our own selves to death. AGBell would be laughing if he could see all of our discussions and the finger-pointing and the begging for censorship. What the hell, guys? ...
