While I can appreciate that the enlightened class of America is more concerned with the plight of the transexual, how Justice Alito will roll back the unlimited abortion on demand rights and send the highly educated women of America running to their dry cleaners begging "Buddy, can ya spare a coat hanger?" or whether fisherman can catch fish in a more humane manner, there really are very serious things occurring in the world right now worthy of our attention. Here's a round-up in my on-going attempt to make Patum Peperium the most well-read and well-dressed crowd in the blogosphere next that site for metrocons; Armavirumque.
*Palestinian Civil War Watch, Day 1.
*Proof that Jimmy Carter has outlived his useful idiotness and Rosalind needs to put him in the happy tablet academy this afternoon.
*Daniel Pipes on Democracy's Bitter Fruit.
*Michelle Malkin on feminism's bitter fruit, Maureen Dowd. Man, it's sad to see what a diet of unrestrained feminism can do to a nice hetero Catholic girl from D. C.
*Richard Baehr on the possibility of a quiet 2006.
*A non-Neville Chamberlain Brit on the extremely sobering need for war with Iran.
*The Barone on The Trustfund Left.
*Father Neuhaus on reporters and a fellow with a "deliciously wicked pen". (second item down, the first item is about something the Pope just wrote that won't be of any interest to the non-Catholics) Diogenes, the man with the pen is available through our links at Off The Record.
*Uh-oh, Brown says New Orleans will be vanilla city instead of the chocolate city Mayor Schoolbus said he wanted in his M.L. King Day speech. Looking back, it's unfortunate M.L.King didn't mention anything about cities not being judged by the color of their skin in his wonderful "I Have A Dream" speech. If King had, perhaps someone in the Democratic party would have had the wisdom to suggest Mayor Schoolbus to take the next bus out of town.
The big non-news news is that we have a new neighbor; a falcon. I'm thrilled. I didn't have to marry an effete member of the Royal family to have a pet falcon. I've got my man, my children, my falcon plus I'm having oysters for dinner. Not bad huh?
More will be posted as the weekend progresses as well as hat tips for all of the sources.
