Things & Stuff
On And On

Diaryland is still spotty, as of this writing.
Here's how it was explained to me: there are twelve major servers for the internet, labeled A through L. They update themselves once a day. When you call up a web page, the server that handles your request is random - you could ask for a page and get server C, and the very next page you ask for could come from server H. So when a Diaryland page is called up, you'll get an error message if the server that got queried hasn't updated yet. My source tells me that it should all be cleared up in 48 hours. At this point in time, we're well in to the second day.
My source also told me some not-so-nice things about Network Solutions. So let's hope it all does what it's supposed to do.
Well, I survived the dentist.
My teeth are in good shape. My gums have problems. I have a good case of gingivitis, and I lost a chunk of one of my old fillings (it was put in my tooth in 1993, so it's been there awhile). No new cavities, which is good.
But I'm going back a week from Monday. Yay.
Lots of political stuff today. Get ready.
In the You've Gotta Be Kidding Dept.:
Seems that not only are the six imams suing the airline, but they also want to sue the passengers who reported them!!
This must get tossed out of court. If this goes through, people will be afraid to report possible wrongdoing to authorities because they might get sued!
And in England, a school changed the name of a play so as not to offend Muslims. They changed "The Three Little Pigs" to..."The Three Little Puppies".
A member of the Muslim Council of Britain has this to say:
"The vast majority of Muslims have no problem whatsoever with the 'Three Little Pigs,'" he told the Daily Mail. "It's always been the traditional way of telling the story, and I don't see why that should be changed."
Mogra acknowledged Muslims are forbidden to eat pork, "but there is no prohibition about reading stories about pigs. This is an unnecessary step."
Mogra asked how far society would go. "Are we going to change the seven dwarves because it's discriminatory towards people who are physically less able? Where do you draw the line?" he asked. "Every time we get these stories Muslims are seen more and more as misfits. We have to accept there's a predominant culture here."
This is what I've been railing about for awhile. A peaceful Muslim is speaking out against the extremeism. Good for him.
But wait - there's more!
Professor Mike Adams - the guy who found out about the Muslim extremeist professor who called his students "little jihadists" - found out about a Kent State professor who, in his spare time, runs a website about...well, go see.
Hey, he has the right to say what he wants, no matter how nasty or despicable. But that means people also have the right to be outraged by it.
It's only a rumor that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed confessed only because they threatened to take him to Water Reed.
Laundry day today. And I gotta TRY to get something done in the garage.
Be seeing you.
