The evolution of Homer
I'm looking at the line up on this Sunday and you know what I think? Maybe Darwin was wrong. I'm seeing so little evidence of evolution here. Or maybe we're looking at the last vestiges of an unsuccessful mutational line. Either way, I'm hoping that we can grow up and beyond whatever this dead end into a nation of people that is more fair, more compassionate, more willing to realize our humanity.
Or maybe we can just stop booking so many damn Republicans.
