D’oh!

Apparently, according to AP, we dropped a half-ton aid package on a house northeast of Mazar-i-Sharif and killed a civilian yesterday. This one will probably be the lead on Al-Jazeera for the next week.

It’s probably also a safe bet that Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, The International Red Cross, and Red Crescent will be denouncing the American targeting of civilians, and equating it with the World Trade Center bombings. Never mind how many lives we’ve saved, or the reality (which many don’t seem to understand about life in general) that there are no risk-free actions.

Oppression From The Florida Government

While many (probably including me) will make light of it, there is a serious point to this story about Florida’s law banning dwarf tossing, and one self-described dwarf’s battle to end it. Does the state or the State have a legitimate right to proscribe the livelihood of a man for which he is ideally physically suited? After all, as he points out, seven-foot-tall freaks are allowed to make (big) money jostling and injuring each other on a hardwood floor while throwing balls through hoops. He just wants the right to make a more meager living being hurled onto an air mattress by drunks. If we let them get away with this, the next thing you know, they’ll outlaw elf bowling.

When we’re not allowed to toss dwarves, the terrorists win.

Osama Occult Laden

As usual, BSNN has scooped the rest of the media and uncovered a story that the others were afraid to report. It wasn’t just bomb plans from the Journal of Irreproducible Results–apparently Osama is a secret Harry Potter fan as well. Read the dastardly story here.

We need to get this information to the front. If true, the combination of Harry’s nefarious magik with Bert’s evil genius may prove deadly for our brave men in arms as they hunt him down in the mystical caves.

Deconstructionism Explained

Front Page magazine offers a nice little break from the war with a piece by Robert Locke called Deconstructing Deconstructionism. It’s as readable an explanation of this nonsense as you’re ever likely to get. One interesting point that he makes is that while this is a very popular subject in english, history, anthropology, sociology and womens’ studies departments, very few philosophy departments will have anything to do with it.

After you’re done reading it, papers generated by the web site described here may be more comprehensible, but don’t count on it.

The Fifth Column in Luton

There is a disturbing piece in today’s on-line Weekly Standard on the wages of multi-culturalism in England. Apparently, there has been an ongoing underground radical Islamic movement going on there.

…When I ask about the influence of Islamist radicalism, Brad says many Muslim leaders have spoken out against it, but the few recruits tend to be young and educated–“the young professionals, the computer guys.” Already two volunteers from Luton have been killed in Afghanistan.

Says Masih, “We’ve been aware of the radicals for maybe ten years, and the last few years even more.” When he worked at Luton University, he encountered “verbal and even physical harassment of Jewish students” by Muslims. He takes a dim view of Britain’s “softy-softy” policy of allowing the radicals to operate here without restriction…

…As we finish our afternoon tea, Masih makes a portentous comment. New mosques here are being built with sturdy cellars, he says. And their members are taking self-defense courses. He quotes a friend in Oxford, another Pakistani pastor, as saying, “You will see things–this is only the beginning.”

Apparently, though it’s not mentioned in this particular story, some of the idiots who went off to Pakistan and Afghanistan (the ones who unfortunately survived) expect to return to England without “being hassled” (i.e., tried and convicted for sedition and treason). If Mr. Blair is so supportive of this war, I wonder when he’s going to start tending to matters on the home front?
