    “…except their own kind.”

    Problem is, when you start thinking of people in terms of “kinds,” then racist stereotypes bubble up from the crud.

    I wonder how Karreem and Muhammad feel about their religious freedoms being compromised?

    Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
    Is those things arms, or is they legs?
    I marvel at thee, Octopus;
    If I were thou, I’d call me Us.

    Brazilian composer/pianist Egberto Gismoti takes us through a variety of Modern styles, from Romantic to Avant-garde with Jazz overtones. Neither whimsical nor ironic so no, it’s not postmodern, but rather sprinkled with sincerity.

Bloomberg Launches Another Impassioned Defense Of Cordoba House

    Why the Cordoba House Should Be Built Where Proposed

    And in case anyone is wondering why the soon-to-be-built Islamic center in New York will be called the “Cordoba House.”

    During its heyday around the turn of the last millennium, Cordoba was the largest and most cultured city in Europe. The city hosted the largest library in the world, so it was no wonder that it was here that the famous Arabic scholar Averroes wrote his commentaries on Aristotle (which later inspired Abelard to teach them in Paris) and the Jewish philosopher Moses Maimonides formulated his 13 Principles of Faith. It was a city where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in social harmony.

    I’m in favor or placing an Islamic center at the proposed location. I understand how some Americans think of Islam as an easy target considering that Al-Quaeda is an Islamic fundamentalist movement, but the United States needs to create friends with moderate Islam if it wants to end terrorism. This is a good beginning, and I think New York should be proud to host this and show the world the true meaning of freedom. Mayor Bloomberg understands this and I’m proud of him.

    Magnetar: …so you see Mr. Bond, having exploded most of my mass, the Wolf-Rayets have given me magnetic properties that render those gadgets Q gave you useless.
    Bond: False assumption, you don’t know what gadgets I have.
    Magnetar: That may be true, but it is also true that I still have a mass 1.5 times the sun.
    Bond: Your point?
    Magnetar: Your feeble attempts to stop me from radiating death to all passing life forms are, well, umh, feeble? Anyway, you will give me what I want.
    Bond: And if I give you that, whatever it is, do you expect I would stop trying to err, stop you?
    Magnetar: No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.

    …Am I not,
    Myself, only half a figure of a sort,
    A figure half seen, or seen for a moment, a man
    Of the mind, an apparition appareled in
    Apparels of such lightest look that a turn
    Of my shoulders and quickly, too quickly, I am gone?

    –Wallace Stevens, Angel Surrounded by Paysans
