I'm so happy! I just received my first Reason's Greeting card this year!
The front of the card said: IF LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION... then, inside: ...THEN WHY DO WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS IN DECEMBER?
The picture on the inside is the cutest little angel you've ever seen. It's a sperm with wings and a halo!
Much thanks (and Merry Christmas!) to my friend Spanish Inquisitor.
Olbermann lets loose with one of his immediately classic "Special Comments" that he does every couple of months. Along with accusing "W" of being a "bald faced liar" and saying that he has "no business being President", says this:
"We have either a president who is too dishonest to restrain himself from invoking World War III about Iran at least six weeks after he had to have known that the analogy would be fantastic, irresponsible hyperbole, or we have a president too transcendentally stupid not to have asked, at what appears to have been a series of opportunities to do so, whether the fairy tales he either created or was fed were still even remotely plausible."
I'm a little surprised that Phillychief didn't beat me to the punch on this story, "Fox & Friends launched a salvo in the War on Christmas Monday, attacking an atheist group's "tree of knowledge" erected in front of a Philadelphia courthouse alongside a creche and menorah, while ignoring a 32-foot tree dedicated to "commercial attraction" in the same public square."
Hmmm... weren't we just discussing this sort of a public display representing the atheist viewpoint recently?
By special request, from The Exterminator, two of the greatest Bob Marley songs ever -
Get Up, Stand Up
I Shot the Sheriff
Have a great weekend. I'll be desperately trying to catch up on my reading for the Non-Believing Literati. Our essays on Mary Doria Russell's "The Sparrow" (sidebar) are scheduled to be posted on, or about, December 15. This book was picked for us by Ordinary Girl. I have a feeling The Exterminator will be asking me to make the next pick, but we'll see in a week or so!
