Just Pray

Pray for New Orleans. I really don’t care what your religion is, or even if you have one. Just spend a few moments asking your deity of choice to show Louisiana and Alabama some mercy because that is the only thing right now that is going to spare them unprecedented death and destruction. Just pray. […]

Today's Headlines, Tonight!

| August 28, 2005 | Reply

I wanted to drop a few headlines from today’s paper with minimal comments because…well…it just has to be a slow news day. Or month. Headline, the First: “Sharpton Adds Voice to Antiwar Protest”. Well, of course he does. There’s a crowd there ready to smooch his race-baiting, slanderous, murder-inciting posterior, isn’t there? Headline, the Second: […]

I’m here. I’m okay. I know I haven’t posted a thing for the past couple days, and, trust me, it’s not because there aren’t interesting things happening. I’ve had a couple things going on that have taken precedence. School starts Monday, and in anticipation of that I needed to take two Departmental Exams before I […]

No More Games about Able Danger. It's Time for a Congressional Investigation

I’m sorry, Mr. Podhoretz and Mr. Geraghty. You can’t just go from “We don’t know nuttin’” to “Able Danger? Yeah? We knew all about them. Bunch of briefings. Not really credible” in four or five days. Which of these statements was true? We know the Committee has already had to backtrack on even knowing about […]

Pulling the Plug (Mostly) on Politics

Pulling the Plug (Mostly) on Politics

| August 9, 2005 | 8 Replies

At some point today, I decided to pull the plug on blogging mostly about politics. I used to love the give and take of politics, but not anymore. I used to love the rigorous debates, the drama of a Senate showdown, the high-stakes electioneering of a Presidential campaign. But I just can’t stomach it anymore. […]

How Do They Sleep?

I wonder if our MSM – especially Newsweek – and certain US Senators feel some sort of guilt over the dead in London. If they don’t, I suggest they ought to. Shehzad Tanweer was 22 years old. He was on Pakistani origin and visited his family there quite often. He was a great admirer of […]

And Now, Something for the Math Geeks

| July 21, 2005 | Reply

For reasons I can not begin to comprehend, several of my friends are math geeks. One of them actually has a degree in Theoretical Mathematics (at least that’s what I remember her calling it). Some of those friends even come here to read The Shack. It’s for them I post things like this list of […]

'Human-brained' Monkeys? Hey, How Could that Be Wrong?

'Human-brained' Monkeys? Hey, How Could that Be Wrong?

| July 19, 2005 | 3 Replies

Can we all get together and say that this is a bad idea? SCIENTISTS have been warned that their latest experiments may accidently produce monkeys with brains more human than animal. In cutting-edge experiments, scientists have injected human brain cells into monkey fetuses to study the effects. In short, the scientists have no earthly idea […]
