A Bird of Truth Pooping in the Mouth of a Cyndi Lauper of Falsehood

Fear The Pain-Beam
"Between the bullet and the bullhorn" lie a whole legion of new non-lethal weapons being developed by the Defense Department. At the front is the "Active Denial System" which shoots a thin beam of energy at a person that leaves no mark, but makes them feel as if they were on fire. The Chicago PD are looking at their phone books and feeling like a bunch of chumps.

He DID Fall in the White House and Get That Mark on His Head...
A piece in the New Catholic Times describes the claims of freelance journalist Wayne Madsden that "in the eyes of many devout Catholic leaders, (George Bush) bear(s) all the hallmarks of the one warned about in the Book of Revelations--the anti-Christ." The only problem with that theory is according to Revelation the anti-Christ is supposed to be universally popular.

It's Bigger Than FLIP-FLOP, FLIP-FLOP! Nice little Boston Globe article on Bush doing the hokey-pokey with WMDs, assualt rifles, Chalabi, the Saddam-Osama nonconnection, the Department of Homeland Security and on and on. But, you know, at least he has conviction or something.

Kick the Corpse I'll stop kvetching about the Gipper when CNN only gives his death 20 hours of daily coverage. This Village Voice attck on Reagan is worth reading at the very least for this factoid towards the end: "I lived in Hollywood in the '80s, and back then, the legend was that Reagan's star needed the most upkeep on the Walk of Fame: It was constantly being defaced by vomit and urine."

And Proudly Display Your Diploma Printed On Mom's Desktop
The Southern Baptist Convention is moving ever closer towards supporting a resolution that would direct its memebers to pull their kids from public school and either send them to Christian schools or homeschool them. Activist Bruce Shortt likens sending a child to a public school to other serious problems like alcoholism or drug addiction. We can't support your efforts enough sir. May we introduce you to the Christian Exodus movement?
