french erudism at its best

what are we to think of french erudism after watching this video?

A crusader’s wife slipped from the garrison
And had an affair with a Saracen;
She was not over-sexed,
Or jealous, or vexed,
She just wanted to make a comparison.
(Ogden Nash)
Thanks ABRUPTO for both!
A new Harvard study on why some americans live longer (a LOT longer 30 years) than others...Fascinating!!!It also says a lot about our country.

An interesting interview with James Frey, author of "A Million Little Pieces".

Another interesting update on Stephen Gaskin and The Farm. I remember living near their house back in DC and giving the kids real ice cream, with which they would delight.

Weird film about 9/11 conspiracy. I have not watched all of it but it promisses. "Loose Change" is the title.

So go to Jewlicious and have a laugh about the pope controversy on Islam's methodology with dissidence and conquest. And other issues even more interesting involving American Apparel, too expensive for my purse. Probably because they do pay decent salaries and don't outsource to some poor third world country.

Orianna Fallaci's death

Two bits of news:
Orianna Fallaci died. I honor her memory!
“How do you swim in a chador?” she asked Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979, not long after he came to power in Iran. His reply, she wrote in The New York Times, was that she was not obliged to wear one, because it was a garment for proper Islamic women. She tore off her chador, and Ayatollah Khomeini stalked off.
The pope's comments which merit some attention. Finally something I can agree with. It it true. Look at the history of the spread of Islam and tell me if it isn't anything BUT violent.

I'm back and happy to be

After not posting for a while for personal reasons, I return to the activity with renewed energy.
Greenstone media founded by Gloria Steinem is starting an all woman radio talk show as an alternative , I hope to the likes of Howerd Stern. Hoorray!!!

“When you have been associated with something immoral, there are two ways you can cleanse yourself – engaging in moral behaviour or physically cleaning yourself,” A new study shows that washing your hands may ease your conscience of wrong doing. The scientists called this the "MacBeth Effect" and you can read the whole article here .

"The fish, smallmouth and largemouth bass, are naturally males but for some reason are developing immature eggs inside their sex organs". These fish inhabit the fishy waters of the Washington area Potomac River. Read it to believe it.It is no conspiracy!!

I like Chaotic Utopia over on this side of the Front Range. It's artsy, folksy and absolutely rationist, just like I like it.

I was in among other places Vail, Colorado and for the three days that I was there did not see one single black person. Saw some Latinos on the construction sites, a lot of Eastern European cuties on the serving patios and in hotels doing the cleaning. But walking around and enjoying the exclusive ambience of Vail..nope!! Just the pure bred white as lillies type of folk. Lots of babies too. No danger of the extinction of the white
