I don’t care what anyone says, brilliance is sexy. Intelligence is sexy. Maturity is sexy. Having a mentally stimulating conversation is sexy. Have a great body is good, being fit is good, health is important. Charm is nice. But intelligence, my God, intelligence is absolutely sexy.

Sorry if this doesn’t fit my blog, but what is happening in Ferguson, Missouri is no laughing matter. Our first amendment rights to free speech and peaceful assembly are being thrown out the window. Our police force is becoming increasingly militaristic and it is time that we assert ourselves as American citizens, we are NOT animals to be corralled through excessive force, we will NOT stand idly by as our basic human rights are violated, we will NOT let the police prevent journalists from keeping us informed. We demand JUSTICE for those murdered and injured through police brutality.
