While You Were Wandering Helplessly...
...waiting for Big Lizards to show you the way to set your life back on course. We are the world's moral compass, of course.
Some folks, we hear, are so peculiar that they don't actually read blogs on the weekend. Evidently, even on Monday, they don't go all the way back to Saturday's posts but simply start up again with the weekday reading.
Actually, I doubt any Big Lizards readers are such weirdoes; I only have evidence that readers of Hugh Hewitt are that sort, if you know what I mean (and I think that you do). But then, readers of that blog are also well known to have six fingers on each hand, fur on their ears, and to chew broken bottles while baying at the moon (I read it constantly, so you can take my word for it!) So it would hardly be surprising that they also fail to complete their weekend reading.
I seem to have wandered far afield. Where's that moral compass again? Here we go:
Saturday, December 10th, 2005: three days after Pearl Harbor Day
- What Has the Times Got Against Coercion Anyway?
In which we take up the sword and shield for just enough coercive interrogation that we actually get the intel we need, and wonder at the mindsets of those who care more about the rights of foreign terrorists being held abroad than about the lives of Americans right here at home -- some of the potential victims even Democrats!
Sunday, December 11th, 2005: one day after Saturday
- All They Want For Christmas
Wherein we pass along a Christmas wish-list consisting of but a single item, from One Marine in Iraq.
- Dario, Fo of the World
We relate the bonechilling news that a whiny, universally despised, leftist Nobel laureate with poor grooming habits (am I being redundant?) has written a play about the momentous life and cacophonous cause of "Mother Sheehan."
- Tookie Delookie
On the day before Stanley "Tookie" Williams' execution, we take a look at the absurdity of the arguments and celebrity vigils against his death -- from people who likely don't even know the names of his victims: Albert Lewis Owens, a clerk at a 7-Eleven; husband and wife Yen-I Yang and Tsai-Shai Chen Yang; and their daughter, Yu-Chin Yang Lin. (This post was subsequently bumped to Monday, December 12th, 2005; but it was originally a weekend post you might not have seen, if you're one of those "Hewitt" readers.)
- Tookie In a Coal Mine
A simple prediction: if Governor Schwarzenegger denies clemency (as he eventually did), then he will run for reelection as a Republican; but if he had granted clemency, he would have been signalling that he was going to leave the GOP and run for reelection as an Independent. But now we'll never know, thank goodness!
- Going Downrange
Wherein Sachi bends her palantir away from Iraq and towards the other major battle in the war against jihadi terrorism: Afghanistan. How, she asks, is that deployment going?
And that's all, folks!
