Seeking Liberty

Liberty is the Fruit from Which All Progress Grows

The worst part


I’ve been thinking about the Kanye West incident.

As much as it pains me to say it, last night I missed the most important point:

Kanye West, in a fit of jealousy and anger, took away what should have been one of the highlights of a nineteen year old girl’s life.  VMAs don’t matter to me, but Taylor Swift was clearly thrilled to have won.

Forget rudeness.  Forget the low-class behavior.  Forget the awful grammar.

Kanye stole a young woman’s moment of pride and happiness.


UPDATE:Beyonce being a real class-act:

Kanye apologized on his blog and on Leno last night. He says when the crowd booed, he knew he’d done something wrong.

Better late than never, I suppose.

UPDATE: Viacom made another copyright claim against the above video.  Too bad for them, as it was probably the best face they could put on this incident.
