Now for something we know you will really like!
I stayed home today, trying to kick this persistent
I've come to the firm conclusion that I like Expat blogs a hell of lot more than I like US based blogs. Expat blogs lack the stridency of the stateside ones, but they have a hell of lot more humor and sense of what is really important. In no particular order you should check out Expat at Large, Madame Chiang, Hustler Diaries ( especially his ongoing series about unexpected sex!).
Some other observations in no particular order:
If I lived in the Star Trek universe, I suspect I would rapidly become a holosuite junkie. Does having sex with a hologram count as cheating? Or is sex with a holographic girl even possible? Maybe that is why you never see a pornographic Holodeck story........
Under the line of: I really used to be familiar with this subject, there is more bad news on the American economic front. Reinforces the old joke about why a bride smiles when she walks down the aisle............ :
Here is a math question. Does this:
It would seem so judging by Pat's latest
Can you imagine the uproar if one of the folks they don't like had said "Could Pat Robertson be right about Chavez?" Not one word of condemnation on her blog though.
Watched Lou Dobbs during one of my conscious intervals. They had some hackneyed minister trying to explain that Pat's remarks should be looked at as those of a political pundit and not as a minister of the cloth:
HAGGARD: Number one, the First Amendment is wonderful. People have free speech privileges. He wasn't writing a memo to the White House recommending a public policy decision. He was not recommending something to the State Department. He was not exposing himself sexually on
the platform the way Janet Jackson did. Instead, he was having a political discussion, where they were randomly working with some ideas. For Jesse Jackson to exaggerate it this way is just as appalling as what Pat Robertson said, I think.
JACKSON: Well, you know, last week, Mr. Rumsfeld was all down through Latin America suggesting that Chavez was a pariah and a destabilizing force. It's like he was saying, let's get rid of this guy, Pat Robertson said, therefore let us assassinate him. That's the kind of tag team of sorts, and it
must be addressed and it cannot be taken lightly.
HAGGARD: Well, and that's exactly what we're doing. We're addressing it, we're not taking it lightly.
Nobody is taking it seriously as a policy issue. So the system is working.
Everything is fine. Nobody's going to assassinate this man. But we do realize he is a major problem. DOBBS: Well, let me ask you both something, and let's -- the politics, and it's a little different here, Pat Robertson is obviously a prominent Christen conservative, also a prominent member of the president's base, his electoral base. But if we can, let's set that aside just for a minute. And Reverend Haggard, you first introduced this idea of a dichotomy, so let's follow the bifurcation a bit.
HAGGARD: All right.
DOBBS: Let's talk about the man as a minister of God, and all that I could think of, frankly, Reverend, when I heard the comments today was, I wait and -- I have criticized Muslim
leaders in this country for not being stronger in their outrage against the fatwas, whether they be against Salman Rushdie or whether they be against the United States. And there has been what Iconsider an unacceptable, unconscionable lack of outrage on the part of the broader Muslim community against the radical Islamists. Do you not think we run the same risk of having a prominent Christian leader, who is not strongly condemned for those remarks? It's his right to say whatever he wants, but isn't it the responsibility of the Christian leadership, the evangelical leadership in particular, to condemn these remarks in the harshest terms?
End of that story. Methinks Rev Haggard is polishing the unpolishable......
Thank God for Johnny Bravo. A man's man misunderstood by every woman he meets. Kind of like me:
