On Scandal: Of Politics
Part 1

Reading: Skilton, Scripture and Confession
Enjoying: ABCs "Brothers & Sisters" (meh...)
Listening: soof-yan

So, Sen. Craig of Idaho got caught man-trolling in a Minneapolis airport. Pastor Doug Wilson weighed in his thoughts about the issue speaking as an Idahoian (sp?). Sandip Roy of the New American Media (yea! new!) writes in "The Outcome of Wanting (Gay) Sex: A Shakespearean Tragedy" that the only crime committed by the Senator was desiring to have sex, and what happened in that Minneapolis airport stall was comparable to what happens every night in singles' bars across the country. Macht wonders why we all assume that Sen. Craig is "gay" when, if he has a wife and kids at home, we don't immediately assume he is actually "bisexual?"

Does anyone expect our singles out cruising in a bar to be held to the same standard as our elected officials? Theoretically, there was a time when holding office meant putting personal wants and lives on hold for the service of the state. Big deal if all the Senator wanted was sex. If we ever get to the point of multi-sex bathrooms, I don't want anyone being able to hit on me while I'm trying to do my business in a stall. That's why we have singles' bars.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely.
