Then there are the racist incidents that Obama backers have faced on the campaign trail. The horrible treatment of immigrants in detention. And let’s say it gas prices.
It’s times like these that the stories on Yahoo’s “Featured” tab have got to get me out of my funk. Usually it’s the content that can break the mood the Dancing with the Stars results or the live-action Fraggle Rock movie option but I’m happiest when the headlines themselves bring it home. Because what says it better than this:
Vatican: Belief in aliens OK
I don’t even care what the article says I could die happy with that phrase alone. But then add the picture, which looks oddly like the pope is holding off an invading horde of little green men. The ominous shadow was actually cropped out at Yahoo. Can’t imagine why.
And there’s still more! At the end of the feature, the little magnifying glass symbol to indicate searches implores us to “Find the Vatican’s new sins list.” Is this the Where’s Waldo for Catholics? Hey, I think I see genetic modification!
What’s lightening your heart these days?
