Chris Rock lays out the precise circumstances in which white people can say "nigger".

Tim Wise says that you shouldn't call someone a redneck and that non-Jews shouldn't do Jewish jokes. Disagree. I agree with Chris Rock--funny is funny. If it made someone laugh then it is funny.

If the horse is hurt, we could dine REALLY WELL.

Of course, if it dies, we'll just continue to beat it. Either way...


That's just so wring Douglas. And besides this is commin from a personal place for me. My niece rides a Peruvian Passo that was rescued from some really rotten bastards in Mexico. They thought it was OK to get the horse running and using lassoes to pull one of her hind legs out from her, effectively tripping her.

So, even in jest I cannot condone harming horses. Misty is an amazingly friendly horse for all she's been throught.

Present company notwithstanding, Ezra, I have overheard almost precisely Ben's fictional conversation myself...AND seen it on Facebook.

Where Ben fails is not noting that the conversation goes almost identically in the other direction just as -- if not more -- often.

Lori, someone named Ben Winfield, who I do not know, posted earlier today over at the Pavillion on the subject of atheism. Specifically an argument that he seems to think refutes it. I still have hopes that he's being facetious. I burst out laughing when I read it. In fact it's not really an argument at all, being completely self-refuting.

I was hoping he would accept my invitation and come over here so I could ever so gently explain to him what is wrong with it. Like a lot of other folks (Frank!) he seems not to have understood HE's request that we take the religion & politics elsewhere. I mean really! I'm not so arrogant as to assume that everyone reads all my occasional posts over there but I would have assumed that everyone would certainly read all of THE MAN's, wouldn't you think?

Mr Barber I have no doubt that you are correct. As I wrote in my response to Diane it is depressing at the level of conversation amongst the so-called "rational" side. Prof Dawkins is much more accomodating of the idea of an atheist "movement" so he draws wanna be disciples. Sam Harris is much more ambivalent about the idea but he draws his share of lackeys and myrmidons. Hitchens of course doesn't do disciples. He eats them alive. I've always had the impression he is much more comfortable around people with whom he disagrees. I'm a bit like that myself actually.

Steve B I'm thinking about how to respond to your post by the way. I've been really busy at work. We're wrapping up our program transmittals this week and I haven't had time to read over your comments and think about them. So if anybody else wants to jump into the conversation please feel free. Time for bed. Been a long day.


ps Wasn't somebody at one time doing a John Carter movie?

Whoops, I'm seeing reports that just this week, Disney moved the John Carter of Mars release date up to March 9, 2012.
