In a Blow for Feminism

Woman accused of stabbing Akron boyfriend because he ate all their salsa. (And was given tenure at one of our better universities.)

a Few Cheers for the Chosen People

An Israeli biotech company is developing a vaccine for cancer that it says can help prevent the return of the lethal disease for 90% of the different types of cancer.

(Have a hunce that although much of the world is anti-Semitic, that Israel will share the discovery with humanity. Darn nice of them

Have a Great Day

Not much blogging today because i am still up to my elbows in alligators (a wonderful saying from Florida). But hope you have a wonderful day.

Academia Has Become the New Mafia

an extremely nice, fair professor who insisted that it was in my own best interest not to rock the boat. I was doing well in his class, and I believed him when he told me he wanted me to continue doing well. He explained to me that people who were viewed as too conservative had had problems graduating in the past, and he didn’t want that to happen to me. I thought he was joking .  .  . until I realized he wasn’t.

(Isn't that just typical for leftists. They have no integrity.)

Reid's Resination - No Loss for the Nation

Byron York:

In 1998, Nevada Sen. Harry Reid paid $400,000 for two pieces of residential land outside Las Vegas. It was a complicated deal. Reid secretly transferred ownership of the property to a company set up by his friend and lawyer Jay Brown, who then convinced the local government to re-zone the land for commercial development. In 2004, Brown sold it to a group of developers and Reid walked away with $1.1 million.

"The complex dealings allowed Reid to transfer ownership, legal liability and some tax consequences to Brown's company without public knowledge, but still collect a seven-figure payoff nearly three years later," the Associated Press reported in 2006. "Reid hung up the phone when questioned about the deal during an AP interview."

It was a classic Harry Reid transaction: legal but a little shady, and undoubtedly lucrative. Business deals like that allowed Reid to do very well during his years in the Senate, spent of late in a luxury condominium in Washington's Ritz Carlton.

This is Probably Not Good

Let's Praise Eveanglicals and Nick Kristof

The New York Times columnist Nick Kristof pens a wonderful tribute to evangelicals, especially a Dr. Stephen Foster.

But I must say that a disproportionate share of the aid workers I’ve met in the wildest places over the years, long after anyone sensible had evacuated, have been evangelicals, nuns and priests...The next time you hear someone at a cocktail party mock evangelicals, think of Dr. Foster and those like him. These are folks who don’t so much proclaim the gospel as live it. They deserve better.

(Of course, evangelicals, which include people like Dr. Foster, don't waste their time by showing up for cocktail parties. They're too busy helping others.)

Well, This is Neat

Scientists at Large Hadron Collider hope to make contact with PARALLEL UNIVERSE in days. (In that universe, Barack Obama was defeated when he ran for president and, as a result, America is prospering  and we wiped out ISIS in two weeks.)

Have a Great Day

Little, if any, blogging today. I am behind on an assignment.

Then We Should Be Expecting

Andrew Gih: God's time for revival is the very darkest hour, when everything seems hopeless. It is always the Lord's way to go to the very worst cases to manifest His glory."
