The Catholic Church abolishes Limbo

Dead unbaptised infants throughout the universe are undoubtedly breathing a sigh of relief at this breaking news from the Vatican (as reported by Reuters): The Roman Catholic Church has effectively buried the concept of limbo, the place where centuries of tradition and teaching held that babies who die without baptism went. In a long-awaited document, […]

“Spin” – Award-winning video.

“Spin” – Award-winning video.

I found this eight-minute video on reddit.com tonight. It was “Penned, Shot, chopped, and Scored by Jamin Winans.” I enjoyed it for it’s clean execution and thoughtfulness. According to this site, Spin has been the “winner of 35 film festival awards worldwide.” While watching this video, I couldn’t help but think of chaos theory: chaos […]

Bill Maher: Abolish Earth Day.  Make every day Earth Day.

Bill Maher: Abolish Earth Day. Make every day Earth Day.

Bill Maher hits the nail on the head–again: Last week I asked: If it solved global warming, would you give up the TV remote and go back to carting your fat ass over to the television set every time you wanted to change the channel. If that was the case in America, I think Americans […]

Killer High Heels

Killer High Heels

Today’s topic is high heeled shoes.  Why do women wear the damned things, I sometimes wonder.  Those women wobble around, they take longer to get from here to there, they often trip on small sidewalk imperfections, and they regularly fall and get hurt. I will confess: my gut reaction is that a woman’s IQ relates inversely […]

Iraq is only the beginning

Iraq is only the beginning

Do you ever wonder what happens to neo-cons after they leave the corrupt, nepotism-ridden Bush Administration?  Some, like Paul Wolfowitz (George W.’s former Deputy Secretary of Defense), go on to create their own corrupt, nepotism-ridden administrations. While investigating Wolfowitz’s resume, I came upon a particularly frightening neo-con organization called the “Project for the New American Century,” which counts Wolfowitz among its […]

Why aren’t flags flown at half-staff every day?

President Bush has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of the 33 people killed this week at Virginia Tech.  So, here’s my question:  why hasn’t he ordered flags to be flown at half-staff every day, in honor of the U.S. (and coalition) soldiers who die every day in Iraq?

Are there bathtubs in heaven?

Are there bathtubs in heaven?

In an earlier post, I wondered how God is going to entertain his followers up in heaven for all eternity, especially those who enjoy the less ethereal forms of entertainment (like jet skis).  Now, my question is about hygiene.  I occasionally look after my neighbor’s two dogs.  Recently, after walking the dogs for about an […]

Attention Sickness

Attention Sickness

Marty Kaplan describes the symptoms and gives a name to “the very real nausea that culture (to use a kind word for it) can cause”:  Attention Sickness.  First the BIG THING was ANNA NICOLE. Then it was WAR FUNDING. Then it was SANJAYA, and vote-for-the-worst sadism. Then it was CANCER, and our national debate about parental […]
