Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

Subdivision by Ani Difranco:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_hmoOhiT7k
White people are so scared of Black people
they bulldoze out to the country
and put up houses on little loop-d-loop streets
and while America gets its heart cut right out of its chest
the Berlin wall still runs down main street
separating east side from west
and nothing is
stirring not even a
mouse
in the boarded up stores and the broken down houses
so they hang colorful banners off all the street lamps
just to prove they got no manners,
no mercy,
and no sense
and i wonder then what it will take for my city to rise
first we admit our mistakes
and then we open our eyes
the ghost of old buildings are haunting parking lots
in the city of good neighbors that
history forgot
i remember the first time i saw someone lying on the cold street,
i thought, "i can't just walk past here, this can't just be true."
but i learned by example to just keep moving my feet.
it's amazing the things that
we all learn to do.
so we're led by denial like
lambs to the slaughter,
serving empires of style and
carbonated sugar water
and the old farm road's a four-lane that leads to the mall
and our dreams are all guillotines
waiting to fall,
and i wonder then what it will take for my country to rise.
first we admit our mistakes
and then we open our eyes.
Our nation's last taker
succumbs to one last dumb decision and
America the beautiful is just one big
subdivision.
