Comments: MORE LINKS

Sarah,
All I can say is remember "Alexander"! I think we laughed all the way and then some!
Smiles,

Angie -- I rented Alexander so my husband could see how bad it was, but I think he was just mad at me that I made him sit through it. He didn't seem to get the same joy out of making fun of it as we did!

Sarah,

Thanks for the Joel Stein link. I wrote a while ago about people who are anti-war but pro-soldier. It has never made sense to me because soldiers sign up to fight, kill, and protect our country (whether they thought that was really going to happen pre 9/11 is a different story). Soldiers for the most part are pro-war...so why support them if you are anti-war? Anyway, even though I think Joel Stein is a prick, at least he's honest. And he understands that anti-war, pro-soldier people are pansies.

That copy editor wasn't worried about offending anyone. He was worried that Nagin would look like the very moron that he IS. That's not a mistake, that's a lie.

If you read to the end of the ombudswoman's piece you'll see this:

Terrorist strikes and Iraqi guerrilla attacks were the main cause but the United States Army killed three of them . . . "

"Hey, there's a journalist. Kill him!"

Real intellectual honesty there, Pam.

It's a WAR zone. Bad things happen, accidents of war. In reporting a plane crash do you say "XYZ Airlines killed 23 passengers today?"

Who the hell do you think protects your right to write? Writers? Or soldiers. Who secured you that right in the first place?

Yes, I did send that to her.
