I'm just saying is all . . .

From the NY Times:
[P]roducer Mike Medavoy said Mr. Gibson's religious zealotry made him feel uncomfortable. [. . . ] Mr. Medavoy is the child of Holocaust survivors.

"One question is, `What propelled him to make the movie about the passion of Christ?' " Mr. Medavoy said. "It makes me a little squeamish. What makes me squeamish about religion in general is that people think they have the answer: `I think my God is the right God.' How do you argue against that?"

The central tenet of Christianity, that which makes it different from all other monotheistic faiths is the belief that Christ died on the cross for our sins. The rest of Christianity is essentially found in all the other faiths - be nice to people, do good deeds, honor those around you, etc., etc.

The central theme of 20th C. Judaism is "Never. Again." Regular readers will recognize that that happens to be a central theme of this writer. Simplisme the CESMs might say, but nonetheless correct.

Never. Again.

As it turns out, one of the biggest proponents of Never. Again. is a director and producer in Hollywood. Gent by the name of Steven. Maybe you've heard of him and his works. He made a movie a few years ago about Never. Again. Won some awards, got some attention.

Let's Google spielberg anti-german "Schindler's List" movie Hmmm. 64 hits.

Let's Google gibson anti-semitic Passion movie Hmmm. 13,500 hits.

Nah. No double standard here.
This doesn't mean that Mel's father isn't a wingnut. He is. But that's Mel's concern, not the NY Times.

Down Under Election Analysis:

According to the Democrats, John Kerry was a natural jungle fighter. He was usually spotted along the Mekong, leaping ashore from his frail craft, clad only in a colourful bandanna and a loincloth, trailing belts of ammunition, firing two M50 machine guns from each athletic hip. Although repeatedly wounded, he carried his men to safety on his back, along with his boat. When his broad chest could no longer accommodate any more medals, he reluctantly limped home, there selflessly to alert Congress to the problems of the Vietnam War.

President George W. Bush, on the other hand, skulked in the safety of the Texas National Guard, until the day he slipped into women's clothing and deserted to Alabama, presumably in search of moonshine. Of his way with livestock in Alabama in 1972, the Democrats refuse to speculate. To describe the president as an alcoholic, transvestite hog-fancier would be to lower the tone of the election to that of their opponents.
[More . . ]

It's at least as accurate an analysis as you'll hear on CNN or NPR.

I told you so

New York Sen. Charles Schumer's fondness for publicity was the subject of a little needling by New Jersey Sen. Jon Corzine at the recent 50th annual Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner.

"Frankly, sharing a media market with Chuck Schumer is like sharing a banana with a monkey," said the Garden Statesman. "Take a little bite of it, and
he will throw his own feces at you."

You read it here first.
Go ahead, take a pointlessly easy swipe at the largest circulating daily tabloid in the country.

Pointless Objectification of Ugly Women

Justine and Lisa Bradley, winners of the 'sexiest vegetarian' contest sponsored by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization, pose wearing only lettuce leaves during a photo shoot in this undated publicity photograph.

Mary Moon, she's a vegetarian (Mary Moon...)
Mary Moon, will outlive all the septuagenarians
Oh she loves me so, she hates to be alone
She don't eat meat, but she sure likes the bone.

Although I'm starting to dismiss the bone idea altogether.
