Random Monday

• So here’s a story about Anders Breivik, the Norwegian who massacred 77 people in 2011. Apparently, he is unhappy with prison life.

Apparently, his cell and coffee are cold, he has no view (no view!), and he’s not allowed skin moisturizer.

So. Many. Problems.

The guy went on a rampage, killed 77 people (most of them teenagers), and was sentenced to 21 years in prison.

TWENTY-ONE YEARS. SEVENTY-SEVEN PEOPLE. What is that, 4 or 5 months per person?

He is threatening a hunger strike until Norway upgrades his PlayStation 2 to a PlayStation 3 and gives him better games.

• In packing and moving news: I’m overwhelmed. In my mind, it’s still sort of January-ish, but then I realized that it’s actually more like end-of-February-ish and that we are closing on the  new house in, like, 4 weeks. Good grief. It’s a good thing I sat on the couch and watched a Snapped marathon all weekend.

• Meanwhile, in Venezuela –

Not trying to be a downer, but that story really moved me.

Those of us who live in freedom are so, so, so very fortunate and blessed.

• Happy Monday, and Happy President’s Day to those of you who get a day off!

    I don’t even have words for that first tidbit. I hope and pray that they let him starve himself to death. Although living is an small, cramped, cold cell with no view and no video games for the rest of his miserable life would provide more justice. As would just shooting him in the head.

    I was JUST reading this. I think I read he wants a couch too, the poor baby.

    Breivik…what a dirt bag!!! This is what happens when the pendulum swings to the other extreme and murderers are coddled instead of punished. All at the tax payers expense.

    Venezuela — It does make you appreciate our freedoms! I will keep the Venezuelan people in my prayers!
