The Monday Melee

meleesmall.jpgThe Monday Melee is a Fracas project. You’re invited to participate. Get details and see the participant list here.

Yes, I realize today is not Monday. But I’m jumping in late.

The Misanthropic: Name something you absolutely hate.
Discrimination of all types: racial, religious, age, gender, sexual orientation.

The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent, or bogus.
Proponents of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge claim that it is necessary in order to reduce dependence on foreign oil. In truth, we cannot drill our way to independence; there is not enough oil in ANWR to make a noticeable dent. It’s a futile and pointless waste of a pristine wilderness area. I strongly believe we need to concentrate on finding alternative solutions for clean, renewable energy.

The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.
The weather. It’s winter. Blech.

The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.
My kids have been doing a better job of taking care of their responsibilities without being reminded.

The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it.
I am fit and healthy.

The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.
A world at peace and in harmony with nature.

    Hey, thanks for dropping in on my melee… It is uplifting to find someone else with similar ideals and passions when you stick your neck out and put your opinions on the line. I share your feelings about pointless denigration of wilderness too.
