Ruminations on the crazy people we are, by a retired teacher/musician. Can't get the "requests" out of my system after years of barroom/lounge/restaurant/party gigs mining 100 years worth of the musical mother-lode.

Christians, Oh You Christians

So, let me get this straight: fundamentalist Christian Americans got this "W" elected. Their "W" invades Afghanistan to undo some fundamentalist terrorists who are not of the Christian persuasion.Having undone those fundamentalists, the "W" installs a government that will guarantee freedom of religion.So far, not bad.
Underneath it all, some very fundamentalist Afghanis are running the local courts, wherein some very fundamentalist Islamics are enforcing Islamic law, whereby a poor Christian soul who has dared to be Christian in Afghanistan is about to lose his head. Now, not so good.
Into the picture comes "Condy" waving all of our money back and forth, and gets one Mohammed guy to put the fundamentalist kibosh on it all.

Fundamental, "W." But very difficult to follow, yes? Perhaps even Alice-In-Wonderland-ish, yes?

Today's Punny Thing:

"taking umbrage" Is it:
a) hiding your real feelings in a snit,or
b) creating shade with an umbrella, or
c) renting a villa in Umbria for the season

That's it for Tuesday, 3.28.06, day one of this paltry effort.

Hey Joe Gee, Thanks for the thoughts about the Afghani convert. The Bus(c)h people had to pay up, else the incredible embarrassment. The author of "No God but God" a new book about Islam (by Reza Aslan????) had a provocative idea. He hoped that the trial had gone forward to see what the courts would do. Hoping to truly find out what kind of nation Afghanistant is (would be). He cited a similar case in Indonesia (?) about a year ago where the court finally ruled that Indonesia could not (under their constitution) execute people for converting. I'll be back.
