Other places, other valuesBookworm

I’m down in the Central Valley right now.  Went into a Foster’s Old Fashioned freeze (love their chocolate dipped vanilla cones) and saw, right on the counter, a packet of materials from the local Marine recruiter.  Wouldn’t see that in Marin, that’s for sure.(image)

Israel thumbs its nose at the Obama administrationBookworm

Mon, 07 Sep 2009 17:39:01 +0000

The Obama administration, without making any demands on the Palestinians who haven’t abided by any parts of the Road Map, insisted that Israel freeze all settlement activity, including such little things as bathroom additions and new floors on houses.  The Israeli administration just thumbed its nose at the US: Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak approved […](image)

Send your kids to school — with caffeineBookworm

Mon, 07 Sep 2009 17:32:54 +0000

Had we in the conservative world not made an uproar, I have no doubt but that the Obama speech, and the supporting teaching materials, would have encouraged children to come to the cult of Obama.  Thanks to the uproar, the speech shows that the cult of Obama is pretty much comprised of one member — […](image)

Still on the roadBookworm

Mon, 07 Sep 2009 15:54:16 +0000

I’ve been so isolated from the news this weekend I only just discovered that Van Jones withdrew. Of course, at the same time, my NYT reading husband first discovered that Van Jones existed, so I’m still ahead of some curves. I might blog this morning, but I’m not optimistic. For now, consider this your “Happy […](image)

Tue, 12 Feb 2008 18:13:13 +0000

This has been in the works for a while, so it’s not a surprise to me, but I know it will be a surprise to you. Effective immediately, I’m switching servers, so my blog will operate at a new address: http://www.bookwormroom.com/ Henceforth, all new posts will be at http://www.bookwormroom.com/ There are still a few glitches […](image)

Guess the speaker *UPDATED*Bookworm

Tue, 12 Feb 2008 06:54:43 +0000

Later today, a government’s representative is going to make the following important announcements: Western governments have “the moral imperative to intervene – sometimes militarily – to help spread democracy throughout the world.” The same speaker says that “fostering democracy in the Middle East ‘is the best long-term defence against global terrorism and conflict.'” He feels […](image)

Dumb questionBookworm

Tue, 12 Feb 2008 04:59:03 +0000

I’m about to show my youth and ignorance here with regard to the Vietnam War (’cause even though I lived through it, I was truly a child then). But first, let me back up a bit. Mr. Bookworm rented Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a film with an […](image)

More blasts from the pastBookworm

Tue, 12 Feb 2008 01:31:27 +0000

Both of the following jokes come from an anthology published in 1950, the last year of Truman’s presidency. First: It was a day late in 1980, when socialized medicine had become the law of the land. A man was seized with a violent cramp in his stomach and sought relief at the modern white structure […](image)

Because good music never goes out of styleBookworm

Tue, 12 Feb 2008 00:55:10 +0000

Tex Benecke and the Glenn Miller Orchestra are “In the Mood”: Be sure actually to watch this video, not just listen, because the musicians’ shtick is great. By the way, if it’s just the fabulous music you want to hear, go to this YouTube link, which has Glenn Miller and his band playing it, with […](image)

This kind of thing could lose Florida for ObamaBookworm

Mon, 11 Feb 2008 23:32:02 +0000

Little things mean a lot, and some Cuban voters in Florida, who might otherwise have been leaning towards Obama, may back off if they get a gander of his fellow travelers — Obama campaigners who are loud and proud in their support for Castro-ite Cuba and Che Guavara. There is no indication at all that […](image)
