Readin', Rantin' and Writin'

Just started reading this. Charges right out-of-the-gate. Will report soon.

Other than that...

Re: Tel Aviv bombing. Fuck Hamas. Sooner the better.

Re: Retired Generals badmouthing Rumsfeld as "meddling". Uh. Yeah. This is where we forget that the military is run by civilians for a reason?

Re: Tom and Kate have baby. Not that I care but they name her "Suri". Fits right in with Moses, Apple, Moxie, Audio, Scout and all the other celebrities that seem to have mixed up children with kitties and puppies. My German Shepherd was named Misty, my daughter (one of 'em) was named Erin. Little confusion about who one was calling to the table at dinnertime.

Re: Duke Rape Case - you knew that Jesse Jackson just would not be able to resist swoping in and making it About.Jesse. Look's like media whore DA Nifong has more than met his match.

Re: Parts of American culture that can still make me go "huh?" Fall into conversation with co-worker/friend in the ladies room at work about our respective Easters. She's Hispanic and annoyed at her husband for falling into the machismo of her male relatives -- he sits, drinks a six-pack, refuses to help with the kids then tells her to fix him a plate of food like the other wives are doing for their husbands. She fixes him with a glare, "I didn't marry a Mexican" and goes about her business. My reply, "..." She shrugs, "Well, he's kissing my ass today."

All sheer folly Mz Darleen.

Amazing what passes for news nowadays, isn't it?

That Tom/Kate busines was all over the news; all cable, all network. 24/7 Tom/Kate

Why does anyone care? Why is it so important?


Why would anyone subscribe to a belief-system invented by a science-fiction writer?
