“Uncanny, unbelievable,” and ridiculous

Grow up, CBS. There’s no need to push a story about National Guardsmen spooked by creepy clergymen talking about New Orleans being “ingrained in voodoo, cannibalism, and witchcraft.” There are things to be afraid of in New Orleans right now, but magical dead sky people isn’t one of them. Bibles that happen to be open to some particular passage or another isn’t either. And, of course, the one name they didn’t give during the interview was that of the idiot chaplain stirring up all the ruckus. Sir, I would also be too embarrassed to give my name were I as shameless as you. Unless I was a media whore named Janet Yi who didn’t care what drivel my name was attached to.

    Funny, I don’t feel anything poking me. I just see you proving my point about the arbitrary use of the . . . never mind. I’ve spelled it out and you still don’t get what I’m saying. Sorta’ like me and my mental block about the use of imaginary numbers in higher math – THEY’RE IMAGINARY! :-P

    Anyway, Hitchhiker’s is a delightful, esoteric romp into the supposed existence of reality. Read the BOOK, not watch the movie (although it’s a pretty good adaptation, all things considered). The book is extremely thought provoking, given you like to think outside the box and are able to consider the possibility that your entire belief structure is irrelevant. For me, it’s up there with Martian Chronicles, Farenheit 451 and Slaughterhouse 5 – all books that totally changed the way I thought/think.

    p.s. Oh, it’s very British. If you don’t like Monty Python, forget it.
