And the lunacy continues
Here's the "proof" that Karr was with his loving family that Christmas--a picture of his three sons. Not a picture of him. His ex-wife cannot locate a single picture that shows Karr with his adoring family that Christmas. If that's all the proof they have, they'd better hope their actor/publicist gets them a sweet deal, all inked and put to bed, before book companies realize what they've signed. (And small wonder that Garrison is unwilling to disclose what the picture shows.)
And yet, when the Ramseys hired a publicist there was no end to the backlash against them...
Hey, maybe Kaavya Viswanathan is looking for work--she could certainly do justice to the story of John Mark Karr's twisted life of lies and fantasies. Although I think Kaavya would balk at helping a murderer or his family tell their tale, actually...
"Doomsday" avoided, but...
Michael Scheuer, who once headed the CIA's bin Laden unit, says bin Laden has been given permission by a young cleric in Saudi Arabia authorizing al Qaeda to "use nuclear weapons against the United States ... capping the casualties at 10 million."
"He's had an approval, a religious approval for 10 million deaths?" I asked him.
"Yes," Scheuer responded.

Ramblings of the day
Here at home, a lunatic of the first order may finally be brought to justice for the murder of JonBenet Ramsey in 1996. As I posted when the news broke, I feel deeply sorry for the things I felt about Patsy Ramsey. I am embarrassed that in Colorado, radio talk show hosts such as Peter Boyles continue to rant that Patsy must have killed her daughter. Whether she did or did not, she has died, and has been judged. Let it go, Peter, let it go. Chances are slim, as I see it now, that anyone in the Ramsey family had anything at all to do with JonBenet's death, regardless of the fact that, yes, every damn one of them acted as guilty as sin for the past decade. Again, these musings on the death of a tiny, innocent child are basically just restatements of the posting I put up days ago.
Oh, and the big news of the day, almost forgot! The Democrats are literally aborting themselves out of existence. A call has gone out to liberals far and wide to please, please reproduce, before the world is overrun with conservatives. Of course, gay marriage doesn't help the Dems' numbers either, I'm sure. Love it.

The bravery of one woman
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, whose Wikipedia entry can be found by clicking here, amazed me with her erudite description of the horrors committed against women in the name of the Koran. Those injustices were the subject of her film "Submission", a film which cost Theo Van Gogh his life.
Of course, all of this is old news by now, but I am continually stunned by the blindness of those who would defend Islam as a "peaceful" religion. Yes, I will catch hell for this, and no, believe it or not, I am not a religious bigot. I support the right of anyone to worship as they see fit. I do think a line should be drawn, however, on the "right" of an Islamic man to slaughter his wife (or daughter, or sister) if she dares to step a toe out of line. When the "peaceful" Muslims mutilate a director in the streets, as happened to Theo Van Gogh, someone must stand up for the simple right to life.
This includes, today, Hezbollah, who seem hell-bent on destroying Israel--as is, indeed, their publically stated goal--all in the name of that "peaceful" Koran. The men who committed 9/11 were not Buddhists. They were not Mormons. They were not Jewish. They were not Hindu. They were Muslims.
Thus, I am all for profiling. I am all for the government listening in on my pizza orders. To paraphrase Dennis Miller, the government can bug my behind if it'll keep me and my kids safe.
All of which is off the topic of the courageous and wonderful Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Islamic women should have the right to life, shouldn't they? This is basic stuff. When Scott Peterson slaughtered his wife and unborn son in California, he was incarcerated and given the death penalty.
He should have converted to Islam, taken Laci to Iran, and cut her head off there.
He'd have been a hero.
