Boycott Wha?

"The permit for Wa Restaurant was denied by the City of Lawrence, so we have ended the boycott. Thank you for your support!"

What permit? I want to know what this means.

Another reason not to feed babies

Making pointlessly corrupt interpretations of scripture is a deeper and darker form of Onanism that the brothers and sisters are using to stumble all over each other on the other side of that link. I'm real sorry I clicked, because I think I got some on me.

The logical arguments against public breastfeeding would be hilarious if they weren't so stupid, and the issue wasn't so serious.

Just me.

I am a smart American

As a smart American, I'll take "you're", reminding myself of the simile regarding opinions. The result is a stupid, but freakily logical sentence I may have come up with myself in an Ambien fog.

A Penny for Your Thoughts

I have to read your blog a dozen times before I can assure myself that there is no secretly encoded attack on the straight potbellied white man. Once I clear my minds of the jabbering demons, and the lager is safely beechwood aged, I sit at my computer promising myself not to become one of the uncontrolled threads resistant to tending.

Then I meditate, crack my fingers and read. You writing is my good fortune, so I, by the power vested in me, Hereby declare you "WEAVER OF GOOD FORTUNE" (all caps}.

NOLA: Housing

"The people are still there, with the same attitudes they've always had. Commanders, Camelia Grille, Domilise's and most other restaurants have reopened. The architecture is still there, although in many parts of town, most of which you (meaning tourists) would never have seen before the storm anyway, are still in ruins."

The people are still there? Estimates give currently (July 2007) about 57% of the pre-Katrina population. I guess that makes about 200,00 people that don't matter. And the architecture? Don't worry our pretty little heads about the parts of town we wouldn't have visited as tourists?

I'm sorry, lpflaum. I know you've had a rough couple of years. Your perspective is interesting because of your first-hand experience. But until I see an effort to support the displaced citizens of NOLA, the city is dead to me.

NOLA: Housing

NOLA will never be the same. The IDEA of NOLA evolved over time, and that NOLA is gone forever. Part of the charm was an almost erotic suspense wondering what will happen when the levee breaks. Even thats gone, now that the mystery is over.

NOLA now (for me) evokes the image of empty rotting house of an entire population displaced while we bemoan the passing of a hustlers free for all.

Terry,
No, I'm not saying that, though it's probably true. I'm saying don't pay attention to that thread killer crap.
