Things & Stuff
Silence Is Deadly
2006-09-22 - 11:23 a.m.
Last night was nice. I stayed in most of the day, so I started to get restless. I went and got some dinner, went to the mall and walked - yes, I did the mall-walker routine - then went home and relaxed with this.
Today is another laundry day, another trip to the laundromat. It costs about a dollar more, total, to go to the laundromat. But I'll save literally hours of time.
Fall starts this evening...but it's still in the 80's here in California.
Gasp...could it be...global warming?
Or could it be the Santa Ana winds...which show up every year at this time?
Oh wait...there's an election soon. The hot air must be from all the politicians.
There's an article from Charles Krauthammer that mirrors my commentary yesterday:
Today's Islamists seem to have not even a sense of irony. They fail to see the richness of the following sequence. The pope makes a reference to a 14th-century Byzantine emperor's remark about Islam imposing itself by the sword, and to protest this linking of Islam and violence:
-- In the West Bank and Gaza, Muslims attack seven churches.
-- In London, the ever-dependable radical Anjem Choudary tells a demonstration at Westminster Cathedral that the pope is now condemned to death.
-- In Mogadishu, Somali religious leader Abubukar Hassan Malin calls on Muslims to "hunt down'' the pope. The pope not being quite at hand, they do the next best thing: shoot dead, execution-style, an Italian nun working in a children's hospital.
"How dare you say Islam is a violent religion? I'll kill you for it'' is not exactly the best way to go about refuting the charge.
Note the questions asked at the end of the article.
As I said yesterday, the silence is deafening.
Oh, and despite gas prices dropping, there's still no news stories praising President Bush...not like there were stories blaming him for the prices going up.
The prices started dropping after summer ended...when people stopped traveling and kids went back to school. As in, when the demand went down.
And I got a report that the price of oil dropped to $62/barrel recently...so the price of the raw materials went down...which reduces the cost.
Gee, could it be that Bush has no control over these market forces?
Okay, enough of that. Since I usually don't post on the weekend, I'll probably be back on Monday.
Oh, and to my Jewish readers...happy Rosh Hashonna.
Be seeing you.
