Putting the ‘Fun’ back in ‘Fundamentalist’ Sunday, May 28 2006 

Apparently Fundamentalists can be funny. I’m staying away from this subject for now, but I think if the Dixie Chicks had said “We support the troops and our president, and by the way screw the ACLU and atheists” Conservatives would be singing paeans to them.

By the way, fuck you Babe Ruth, and fuck the Yankees. Barry Bonds, an SF player, is now #2 on the all time Home Run list. Hey, I can’t name my blog after a certain word and not be that word at least once (see the About page for what I’m talking about).


714 Saturday, May 20 2006 


Barry Bonds finally ties Babe Ruth with 714 home runs. And with relatively little fanfare, largely because the homers will be eventually invalidated by his drug use and because Bonds is a dink

Oo, meow. It sounds like Kottke is angry. It could just be me, but it seems that as a New Yorker he’s pissed a non-New York player is now number 2. After all, Babe Ruth was a Yankee.

I was walking downtown in San Francisco yesterday when I spotted a man I’d read about, but hitherto never seen for myself, Frank Chu. If someone has a Wikipedia article about them, they must be famous!

On Tolerating Religion Sunday, May 7 2006 

Go over to Sfgate.com and and read this article. Then ask yourself “Hey, should a modern 21st Century country like America tolerate irrational religious belief?”

If your answer isn’t no, perhaps you should find a country that agrees with you where you’ll feel more cormfortable. Like The Islamic Republican of Iran. We need to treat these people as what they are: irrational. If someone denies Evolution, treat them as if they were denying the Holocaust or the Kennedy Assassination. For example,

“Parents should have the choice. There are those who would say, ‘We can provide a better, healthier alternative than the vaccine, and that is to teach abstinence,’ ” Rudd said.

I take it Rudd hasn’t read this. Abstinence is not practical. Of course no amount of evidence will convince these people otherwise. Who needs evidence when you have the Bible?

I mean, after September 11th I thought America would’ve stopped pandering to religion and favouring it over no religion.

It would seem as though the exact opposite happened.
