This may be the laziest post ever, but bear with me…I’ll write a real post later! I have some ideas floating around in my head, but I need to do a bit more studying and essay writing first. Until then, I’ll fulfill my blogging addiction by sharing some interesting things I’ve read over the week!

4. Funny political protest signs. I especially loved the ones full of grammar and spelling mistakes insisting people “speak English”: http://politicalhumor.about.com/od/funnypictures/ig/Funny-Protest-Signs/
