The Monday Melee
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.
