Musical Monday - Not Very Musical at All Today

Monday is the day of the week that I usually post a nerdy musical selection. I originally planned to post a cute little song by Molly Lewis about the "fight" between those who love Christmas and those who love Thanksgiving. But I'm not in a very festive mood tonight.

Tonight we have seen our country devolve further into a dystopian nightmare. I don't think it was a coincidence that Rue was black, a child, and unarmed. I think that was a deliberate choice on Collins' part, and sadly, a prophetic one. If one can feel empathy for and understand the rage of the rioters in District 11, but not that of the protesters in Ferguson, then there is something fundamentally wrong with your understanding of the world, and you really should reexamine your life. America has failed to live up to its stated ideals yet again, and we all suffer for it.
