Okay, I seem to have an enemy. I’m not sure why, but someone has taken to insulting me in the comments on both of my sites. (He also checks my site more regularly than anyone, and spends a lot of time here.) I’ve banned his IP from the comments. I don’t like doing that, but I like personal insults even less. I’ve never posted a comments policy, but it’s pretty simple. Use your common sense, and don’t insult me or other posters, and keep it at least PG-13.

Suspects moved to cells with arrows pointing to Mecca

Oh, how awful. We certainly are mistreating the Taliban and al-Qaeda prisoners at Guantanamo, aren’t we?

When snakeheads are outlawed…

Feisty ‘frankenfish’ now fugitive in N.Y.

The Dreaded Chinese Snakehead Walking Fish is getting harder to find in New York, and soon may only be available on the black market. Don’t they understand, if snakeheads are outlawed, only outlaws will have snakeheads?

CNN.com – Dallas schools sued over religious e-mail – August 2, 2002

A school district employee (her exact job isn’t said) sent an email to friends pushing W’s ridiculous national day of prayer. The school district said this was inappropriate and threatened to suspend her email privileges if she did it again. I’ve got to side with the religious zealots here — at least given the information in the AP story — and say that the school district stepped over the line. If some private use of email is allowed, you can’t say that she can’t use it to send religious messages to her friends. If she was spamming people and making it look official, or sending it to everyone on the system like people at my (religiously affiliated) employer do, that would be a different matter.

That’s a lot of pot. I’m sure it was all for personal use.

CNN.com – Week-old girl raped in S. Africa – July 30, 2002

Given the way I feel about people who eat turtle eggs to get an erection, you can imagine how I feel about the kind of slimeball who rapes an infant to supposedly cure his AIDS. I don’t know what to say except that if anyone deserves to have AIDS it’s this guy and I hope he gets cancer too.

McKinney, Majette are in tight race in 4th

It’s a statistical dead heat. Denise Majette actually holds a two-point lead over the Arab Lobby’s favorite Congresswoman in the latest poll, but that’s well within the margin of error. At any even, McKinney is in deep trouble and even her campaign manager says he’s worried.
