Dog Bites Islamist

April 15, 2017

Your good-news story of the day:

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — Officials say a dog at a Nigerian wedding party grappled with a suicide bomber until her explosives detonated, killing the animal as well.

Buba Ahmed of Belbelo village, near the northeastern city of Maiduguri, says guests are grateful that the dog sacrificed itself to save their lives.

He says the teenage bomber was on the outskirts of a gathering where most villagers were attending a wedding ceremony when the dog pounced on her Sunday morning.

Mark Steyn offers even more melancholy reflections than usual, as the soldiers of a thousand-year-old dead man draw the circle ever tighter on free expression in the West.

A recent post by one of my left-leaning Facebook friends:

As I myself am a Visible Trans Person (whoa!), and it seems to be Trans Day of Visibility, I offer once again: Do you have a question you would like me to attempt to answer (about my gender, or gender in general, or…something else that’s on your mind)? If you post it here or PM me, I will (possibly!*) answer it!

*if I feel like it

I have nothing against her personally, and I’m sure she’s a very nice person, but—I think she’s already answered the important question loud and clear.

Tribute to the music of the ’50s and ’60s and the music videos of the ’80s calls out the narcissism of this generation:

Merry Christmas!

Castro Dead

November 27, 2016

Because man is fallen, the curse of free will is that bad men eventually get into power.  Because God is merciful, the blessing of mortality is that they don’t last forever.

Today the world has one fewer murderous dictators.  May God have mercy on Fidel Castro.  Praise God that he is finally dead.

Celebrate with this classic Remy parody song:

Viva Cuba.  Viva la libertad.

Sudden Thought, Gang

I’m glad the left has finally agreed that it’s unhealthy (for us and for our democracy) to assume bad intentions of/dehumanize/demonize/“other” those we disagree with.

Maybe after the election is over and everyone’s had time to cool down, someone can invite them to consider whether that might have any implications for their own lives.
