I met Emily Lyons long before the bombing. Nice woman, funny, charismatic and outspoken even then. I notice the creep didn't apologize for the Birmingham bombing. For the record, the word at CNN should be "terrorist" and whoever said "serial bomber" is either too cowardly to face phone calls from nuts or is incompetent. At the national paper where I worked, the word was most assuredly not reserved for Muslims and was to be applied to anyone who targeted civilians.

The apology I'm waiting for is from the people in N.C. who helped Rudolph hide out for all those years. I feel as bitterly toward them as I do toward Rudolph.


Well said.


We have the same thing going on in India too. Too tired to dig up a post that describes this. Will do this one of these days.

By the way I have the W.C. Fields movie and will be watching it tomorrow.


The Heretik

"Terror" takes seeming, casual violence, and magnifies it greater than it ever could be as a single act. Randomness and the possibility of more make a horror in everyday life. The challenge to faith is great, but in the telling of such tales we find ourselves stronger. Don't lose those notebooks and don't be too greedy with their contents.

Exiled in NJ

What can one say when your notebook returns to your conscious mind on a day another man of religion, as he calls himself, asks that we consider taking up terrorism ourselves, and offing a man he considers unworthy of being an elected leader? Some will the coincidence irony, but I call it pathetic. That's some shining path on which he leads his followers.

For those who did not see the news this morning, Exiled in NJ is referring to the fact that Pat Robertson called for the assasination of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.

Here is a link:

Let us remember that Pat Robertson breaks bread often at the White House.

(Yeah, but he ain't no Billy Graham.)


Thanks for the link, mac. Billy Graham ain't no Billy Graham any more. He's been morphed into his son, who is scary the way they all are now and weren't back in the Graham the Father's heyday.

NJ, sometimes fate just does me a favor I'd just as soon it not bother to do.

Night Bird

Evening Mannion:

El Sendero Luminoso and the Tupac Amaruistas were Terrucos as the campesinos called them. They did not join forces but their methods became too extreme. In the 1980's there was toca de queda in the cities in Peru. The roads to Ayacucho were not safe to travel.

I liked your has brought back memories. I lived through it.
