This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

Maybe you've heard of this letter that a bunch of diplomats (or, more likely, ex-diplomats) sent to President Bush, excoriating him for supporting Israel. Well, I was googling around, to see if I could find a complete list of the people who signed it, wondering if Ralph Earle II had signed it -- apparently not, though I wouldn't have been surprised. But in the course of googling, I came across this -- apparently the letter had been posted to some community website (Talkabout? never heard of 'em) about a week ago, soliciting diplomats to add your name to the letter! And in self-parody, practically, the post was written from an email address called "stop_the_nazis@" something-or-other. Well, Godwin's law applies before the stupid thing was even sent out!

I still can't believe how common it is for people to equate Israel with Nazis. Hello! Hello? Even Monty Python did it, 25 years ago. Sad.

OK, OK, so I'm biased. Big deal.
