It’s my fault. I designed the site, in CSS, with a footer. It wasn’t working at the time I did the prototypes, but I figured that I could work it out. Silly me.
On researching solutions to this problem, I found out that a site no less impressive and resource-rich than Wired tried to make a solution to this problem work, and gave up in favour of a center-div footer. This does NOT bode well for little ‘ol me.
Sorry about my rant yesterday. Every time I watch the news it depresses me further. I’m very nervous about flying back home. That evil grinning monkey Bush pisses me off.
I grew up thinking that being an American was something to be proud of; this is at the core of what bothers me so. It had to do with honesty, and bravery, and doing your best against terrible odds (we all have immigrant ancestors who struggled). It does NOT have anything to do with being the biggest bully on the block. With doing whatever your twisted little monkey heart desires because no one will stand up to you.
We were supposed to be the good guys. If our leaders (and we have had bad presidents in the past, of course) did bad things in the world, they weren’t as blatant as they are now. The powers-that-be wanted at least some demonstrable difference between themselves and, say, Idi Amin or Saddam.
I just want everyone to wake up and say STOP, this is not what we were meant to be. This is not my country anymore, and this is not what we are.
I refuse to believe that we’re just more open about it now.
