Christian’s Response To Obama’s Hate Crime Speech Bill

I saw this over at Julie’s blog Attempts at Rational Behavior.

My response is, if these douchebags are on your team, reconsider the affiliation.

Second, if you’re so lame that you take a miniature rug with a penis printed on it, and douse it in gasoline, but can’t get it lit on the first try, maybe it’s a sign that you’re a bigger douchebag than you had previously thought.

Five Minutes with: Sir Jonathan Miller

This is worth five minutes of your time.

Sir Jonathan Wolfe Miller, CBE (born 21 July 1934) is a British theatre and opera director, author, television presenter, humorist and sculptor. Trained as a physician in the late 1950s, he first came to prominence in 1962 when the British comedy stage revue Beyond the Fringe (written and performed by Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett, and Miller himself) came to Broadway. Despite having seen only a few operas and not knowing how to read music, he began stage directing operas in the 1970s and has since become one of the world’s leading opera directors with several classic productions to his credit. (Probably best known is his 1982 “Mafia” Rigoletto, set in Little Italy.) Along the way he has also become a well known and engaging television personality and familiar public intellectual in both the UK and the US.
