Ruminations of the Easily Amused for January 4 2010

4 January 2010 at 1:17:16 PM

Almost put 2009. Seems to take me about 2-3 weeks to fully get into the habit of using whatever the next year is.

Heh. Britt Hume on the answer to Tiger Woods problems. via WWJD ... and Washington Monthly

It's hard to even know where to start with something like this. How many high-profile Christians have had damaging sex scandals of late? Why is Buddhism deemed inadequate for those with family problems? Why is a senior political analyst for a so-called "news" network proselytizing, on the air, during one of the network's "news" programs?

and Slog- Convert and Get a "Get Out of Adultery Free" Card

Woods should become a Christian, Hume argues, not because Jesus is Lord or Christianity is the one true faith or because Christianity is the way, the truth, and the light. No, Woods should become a Christian because Christianity offers the best deal for adulterous husbands—you know, all that forgiveness and redemption and stuff that you can't get anywhere else. A Christian man can cheat on his wife with scores of tight-faced tramps and all he has to do is make a full confession and—presto!—he's forgiven! It's all good! And once Woods has squared things with the right God—or the Right's God—folks aren't allowed to question his actions or his character or his judgment because that would amount to an attack on his faith. The incentive to become or remain a Christian, according to Hume, is this: you can pretty much do whatever the hell you want—lie, cheat, steal, f*** around—and set a great example for the world by making a dog-and-pony show of your remorse. (See David Vitter)

This will make you rethink whether you EVER engage in horseplay. What did it for me was watching "Garden State" and thinking about that one random moment of hitting the dishwasher where one simple part make the main character's mom a cripple.  Not that that was horseplay but why mess around when life can be fragile?

Is fingerprint smudging on its way out? 

Hah-Hah! One remote to Rule Them All-for an iphone. The L5 Remote.

Oh. So it was OKAY for Senator Jane Nelson of Flower Mound to make rent payments to her HUSBAND????

Should Dolphin be given personhood? I think so. It's the height of arrogance to assume humans are at the top of the chain.
