Since I deal with some deeply depressing news, I decided that I need a happy place to remind me that people can be really amazing sometimes. When I feel dragged down by meanness, selfishness, corruption, and ignorance, this is where I will come. Feel free to submit acts of human kindness, selflessness, and just plain awesomeness.
And if all this awesomeness is too much for you, you can check out my other blog, http://foulmouthedliberty.tumblr.com/, for balance. :)

MEGAN OH MY GOD
The bronze sculpture depicting Jesus huddled under a blanket on a park bench has provoked praise and complaints — and a call to the police — in its new North Carolina neighborhood.
What has to be wrong in your heart when you drive by what you think is a homeless person sleeping on a bench, harming nobody at all, and you sic the cops on him?

I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five. The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female. (via World Cup Soccer Stats Erase The Sport’s Most Dominant Players: Women)
