is just plain ignorant.

What more needs to be said?

…who when asked himself on a matter of national interest gives such a response?

If you are in the business of asking people questions for a living I would think you should not be so shy about answering them.

Here’s one for Doctor Helen…

I know a fellow who is estranged from his wife, during the course of their estrangement an order was put against him forbidding contact.

A few days ago he got a text from her, being a wise fellow he instantly called the court in her state and found out several things.

1. He has in fact been divorced for two months without his knowledge and for a mere $8 he can get a copy of the divorce decree.

2. He then asked about the text message and was told that she was allowed to text him to whatever extent she wants. If however he answers he is in violation.

Am I the only person who sees an inconsistency in this?

Just don’t call it Cabbage

The fine blogger Roxeanne de Luca takes exception with me and Stacy for our defense of the Arab man in this story, to wit:

What really appalls me, though, is the idea that since every man out there lies to get sex, it’s okay and cannot possibly be criminal. Humans could not have long survived, let alone created our civilisation, if we only did things that we want to do and used any means to obtain our goals.

I have to disagree, I’m not defending the man’s actions but I don’t believe it is fair or proper to call it rape with all it entails.

Israel can have whatever laws it wants but I think it is wrong, not because the guy is good, or the lady is evil but words carry meaning and the meaning of what happened certainly isn’t rape.

Oh and the meaning of the title, Roxeanne’s blog won’t allow a comment with the word rape, so I replaced it with “Cabbage” throughout.
