No Dakinis On Your Bikinis Harrods Department Store in London has apologized after selling underwear that featured the images of Hindu godesses.

My personal fave Hindu sacrilage of late is the casting of Tina Turner as the goddess Shakti in a new film by Ismail Merchant that makes Tina a post-facto Hindu diety according to a strict interpretation of Hindu theology. P.S. Are their no freelance photogs in the UK? What's up with the camera phone image in the article?

Too Bad They Left Out All The Wacky Shit About Space Aliens A popular drug-education program provided to San Francisco public schools free of charge is filled with "all the Scientology and Dianetics Handbook basics," without direct references to the "Church." Started in 1966 by L Rod Hubbard, Narconon is filled with the mad captain's pseudo-science. Students hear such gems as "When people take drugs, they affect the mental (image) pictures." and " that the body stores all kinds of toxins indefinitely in fat, where they wreak havoc on the mind until 'sweated' out." Maybe the Moonies can come in to teach a class on family living and marriage...

You Steal No Thunder MCNS In another chapter of our ongoing "Worst Piece of Writing From the Left" saga, I humbly submit this article from AlterNet entitled "Kid Rock" about two hipster parents who, you know, don't want their 2-year old to listen to lame rock music, or something. You need a licence to fish, but anyone can have kids... "When Baldo was old enough to speak, he'd pipe, "Iron man!" in his little toddler falsetto. He'd sing the riff. I wept tears of joy and blogged furiously."
