Opera canned

An opera in Germany is cancelled because it might offend Muslims. Judging from the description, the Mozart opera might have offended a few Christians, too.

This is when people have to have some guts and go forward with their life. Maybe add some guards, but for goodness sake, don't let the Neanderthals govern what operas you see or don't see!

Fall picture

Here is why I love fall.

Neshek

Once again, I have to link to Twins pitcher Pat Neshek's site. So, the Twins have clinched and he played a big role and there are playoffs ahead--but what does he talk about? He got an autographed Aerosmith card on the trip to Baltimore! This guy's a wonderful flake. What I like most about him is that although he is now rich and famous, his sympathies are still with those poor people seeking autographs, people doing what he did a few years ago--and still does, for that matter.

Compromise

It is now clear that the "compromise" on torture going through Congress will allow the President to use torture on United States citizens, or people from anywhere in the world, at his discretion. He is also allowed to detain them without trial indefinitely if he deems them dangerous.

Sounds more like a capitulation than a compromise.
