Right and wrong: England, Michael Pritchard, Red Sox, yes, @rollingstone NO!

I don’t have anything new yummy wise for you to eat today unless you want to talk about Chobani or green beans so let’s just move on. (If you want something tasty, you can look here at any of these yummies.) Instead, let’s talk about right and wrong.

Periodically, I’m going to take a look at what’s right and wrong in the world and present it to you with fun photos and commentary. Why? Why not?

(Note that you might not agree with me and per the terms of this, you may tell me that you do not agree with me. I prefer you aren’t a jerk to me and certainly not to others.)

There’s a whole lot of right and wrong going on in the world right now. So much that I can’t keep up really. There’s Zimmerman (conflictingly bad, killed a teen, but legally got away with it) and Boggs (awesome, saved a 5 year old girl from a kidnapper). There’s potable water supply issues, but teens actively trying to solve it for people in areas of the world where water is unsafe to drink. I could go on.

Let’s start with some things that are in fact right in the world.

England, you got it right. The rest of the United States should follow suit.

This dude? Michael Pritchard. He got it right talking about bullying.  The one and only example of when it’s okay to make a kid cry in school. (Watch it here. Sorry, I can’t figure out how to imbed it today.)

And my Red Sox continue to be in first place although this losing streak should end NOW boys. Pick it up.

BUT the above? Thumbs up!

Now for a little bit of wrong.

Oh Rolling Stone. No, I’m not linking today because I think they’re so very wrong. You can not glorify terror and by using that, ugh, person on the cover in pose and look that evokes Jim Morrison is glorifying what he and his brother did. NOT COOL.

(I encourage you not to go to their website to submit your displeasure if you agree, go low tech old school and send an actual letter. Send this month’s issue back to them. Don’t be part of the bolster to their page hits!)

Instead I offer you this cover I found with Sean Collier (If you’ve forgotten his name, he’s the police officer killed at MIT during the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.) on the cover as part of our very first Right and Wrong image.

So wrong. So very wrong.

Now I ask you! What do you think is right or wrong in the world today?


About Court

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

    I totally agree, the Red Sox staying in first place is EXCELLENT! So very right, and the whole baseball thing is pretty right right now! I don’t want to go into the wrong things, because they’re just so terribly wrong.

    • Court says:

      I’m under no delusion they’ll be in first place in as little a 3 games but for now it’s right! And they might just hold on!

      I hope your wrongs improve. Hug.

      Out and about
