A couple of disclaimers:

1. My view of the US prison system is pretty negative, so if that will upset you, I suggest you don't read the first part of this. This is not because I am not a patriot -- in fact, I consider myself highly patriotic. And in particular, I love the idea of the justice system.

Let me repeat that: the *idea* of the justice system. To live in a place with an assumption of innocence and a law that provides for legal representation for all is a truly amazing thing. I think that the reality of it is something that needs to be refined.

And that's the beauty of this country, I think: we *can* change things. And I have to hope that we will.

2. I love Clark. I love Lex. I don't ascribe to the cult of either, and I don't think either is perfect. I think that my Clark!Love is pretty undisputed. *laughs* But I can admit to what I see as problems with him, and his (projected path of, in this case) behavior.

3. I love my show.

4. My toe nails are very pink right now. I may have to take the polish off them. *squints at it*

All of that having been said, I went a little crazy this morning on chat with Lyra while looking at Discipline and Punish: The Birth of Prison by Michel Foucault.

American Disclipline and Punishment: Thoughts on the US prison systemCollapse )

The American Way?: Superman as Judge, Jury and ExecutionerCollapse )

Nature vs. Nurture on SmallvilleCollapse )

Lex's Role? Collapse )

Thanks to Lyra, Fox, and Bex for looking it over. I'd love to do a similar post re: HP, I just don't know nearly enough about British law to do so. Anyone want to pick that one up? *chucks ball in your general direction*

My day today has been ass tastically bad. It's sucked balls. I got three hours of sleep, and have become a raging monster of tantrum and whine. It's like being five years old all over again.

And so I say to you, all, cheer me up? Please? Comment porn or comfort comment fic? I'm easy. You know how easy I am. Pick a non-anime fandom, and I'm probably in it if it isn't Alias or Highlander. I like boys, I like girls, I like het and slash and femmeslash and I like all of you and and and....please help me out? *is unutterably pathetic*

Make my night be happy and filled with the joy of sex or cuddle? You know you secretly want to.
