“Autumn Day” (Rilke)

2013-09-21 10.01.58-1

Lord: it is time. The huge summer has gone by. Now overlap the sundials with your shadows, and on the meadows let the wind go free. Command the fruits to swell on tree and vine; grant them a few more warm transparent days, urge them on to fulfillment then, and press the final sweetness into [Read More...]

France Votes to Ban Child Pageants

From "High Glitz: The Extravagant World of Child Pageants" (Susan Anderson)

Yes, famously libertine France has more common sense than America. These disgusting pedophilia pageants are just a slick, packaged form of child abuse orchestrated by narcissistic parents. One of the more striking things about pageants is the predominance of flamboyantly homosexual men among the judges and advisers, dressing up little boys and girls like dolls and [Read More...]

“I’m a Fiddler Crab!”

daffy

Every time I see a story like this: Grandmother boasts: “I’m Long Island’s first female priest” I think of this (at the 18-second mark): Sweetie, you ain’t a priest: you’re just a sad old lady with delusions, playing dress up.

Alan Jackson, struggling to understand 9/11, woke early one morning in October 2001 with this song in his head.

Although it would be mocked in some [Read More...]

A Prayer For 9/11

2013-08-19-Baker_911_1

Dear Lord, as we remember the evils of September 11th, let us turn our hearts and minds towards the good found only in You; Be close to those who mourn: the parents who lost children, the children who never knew a parent, and all who lost a loved one; Embrace this grieving nation, and let [Read More...]

Ask a Slave

If this hasn’t already gone viral, it’s about to. Funny, funny stuff from Azie Mira Dungey, an actress who played the Washington’s house slave, Lizzie Mae, at the Mount Vernon historical site. The questions are actual things people have asked her. The only minor annoyance is the “Jefferson had sex with his slaves” line (a slander [Read More...]
