Article in the NYT about the NSA and Israel's Unit 8200. Not the sort of scandal you want when you're supposed to be negotiating a peace settlement, while simultaneously expanding illegal settlements into the other side's land.

    But don't worry, because the IDF will do an investigation, and the final answer will be that there has been no wrong doing by the government, the military, or the intelligence services. Of course, the answer will not require that working be shown...

    Are you in favor or opposed? Should we do a thread on the matter?

When I saw a member of Pussy Riot insert a dead chicken into her vagina, I saw the hideous gaping void (literally) of 'progressivist' barbarism.

Victor Stenger died three weeks ago and I'm just now finding out...three weeks internet time is approx 1 year "real world" time. I need to get it together.

    The critic is actually persuasive in his counter-argument, and therefore given the lucid article, he should write a book exploring the implications of his distinction between conservatives and liberals.

Editing Sandal all the way through, now; I'll post a completed (though not final) edit hopefully in a few days, rather than in bits and pieces as I've been doing. Looks quite good to me, a proud offering for Pood Paw Prints.

I am rereading Sandal from scratch and LOLing at parts of it, like the Jesus carpooling scene. :lol:

    It was the old man cracking his knuckles at random intervals and a bunch of bored-looking children forming a choir, and the protagonist therfore knows some special is happening. :heh:

    I hope so, too. Realize, however, that there are now women in the armed forces, including in combat roles. They are NOT "vaginas," and will not appreciate being treated as such. Word to the wise.

OK, resuming editing Sandal, and will have it finished and along with final Pood edits soon. Then Scott can make Sandal into a book.
