Blogging R Still Us

Getting NOLA Wrong. And he's right, the Bush Administration got it wrong, too. We still care. A lot. (The story focuses on religious groups, but they're not the only ones down there working.)

LIA/R Back in the News

TPM and The Washington Note have finally launched Bolton Watch. (Let's hope part of their mission is to go back and recap what's he's done so far, as well as his history before being strong-armed into this position.)

Where is all of this illegal domestic spying taking place? Right here in Colorado.

Also here in Colorado, Faust puppetry under fire. Seriously. Having lived in a small town, I know there's not much to get excited about, but organize a town picnic or something, people.) (Also? Please don't tell reporters that you think Faust "glorifies Satan in some way." It sends the clear message that you're either ignorant and uneducated, or that someone fed you a heaping helping of rightwingnut talking points and you swallowed.

CathyFromCanada has been giving us some good posts recently. Check out The golden age (on the "overall goals of the religious right" and it's the place to point "religious moderates" who are still hung up on the good influence that religious movements and sects used to be in society) and Doesn't CBC News use Google? (an even scarier post about "cultural Marxism"). I'm going to think about this one and I may come back and rant at you later.

Via James Wolcott, I got to William Lind's The Next Act. Apparently his take is that the recent truce offering from bin Laden was a signal that they're about to attack again. (He makes a case for it and Wolcott doesn't dispute him.)

(Scolling down through another Wolcott entry, I discover that the righwingnut echo chamber has had a hate on for Google for some time now. Who knew? Me, I think that stuff about it being hard to make yourself visible on the internet is a load of hooey. Seems to me that every time I start a new page or a blog, I'm all over Google thirty seconds later.) (Actually, it's kind of scary.)

Thank a feminist (but don't rest yet).

Thanks to Debbie in Fulcrum's comments.

Faust is the ultimate Christian parable: how can they be upset about it? The worship a dead guy on a cross, and they can't handle a little puppet swordplay? Have they read the Bible lately?

Like I said. Someone told them there were Devil Puppets in the school and they all came unglued. Not one of them probably knows anything about Faust and it doesn't sound as though any of the "up in arms" parents bothered to check out what the whole thing was actually about.
