Connecting Dots...

Perhaps the problem with the Middle East, commented on most recently here, could be addressed by what Rod discussed in the previous post, here.

Maybe the problem is that Islamic architecture doesn't encourage the goal of people reaching their fullest potential living virtuously in community.

You might be right, but I tend to think it results from a lack of available Whole Foods markets.

BTW--Rod deleted a few of my more trenchant (if I do say so) responses to his latest Catholic-Bashing Rants. They will probably be re-posted. (I saved 'em.) He can keep on deleting till the cows come home. Meanwhile, at BeliefNet's conflict-resolution forum, I will ask why it's OK for Friends of Rod to tell fellow comboxers "F--- Off, B----" but not OK for NON-Friends of Rod to post perfectly inoffensive posts that dare (gasp!) to disagree with Rod's position.

I felt sorry for Rod for about two days after learning about his demotion at the DMN. Now I hafta say I wonder why it took them so long.

I still feel sorry for him. But man, is he NASSSSSTY. Sometimes it simply staggers me. This is Christian behavior? Since when?

Diane, the real tragedy of Rod's demotion is faced by us Dallasites. Now we have to read Rod's actual written work in the paper. Before, we could kind of forget that he was a junior editor behind the scenes of the opinion section.

LOL! Do what I do with our local rag. Read only the funny pages.

Actually, we don't subscribe any more. I really miss Zits. And Dilbert. Waaaah. :(

did this blog start feb 2006 or march 2006? i guess blogger archives only go one year back, because i thought it started in february, but the earliest archives are march 2006.

Of course Mr. Dreher omits the help his colleagues have contributed to the SNAFU in Iraq. This is best exemplified by William Arkin of the Washington Post.

I am sorry for the double post.

No need to apologize, Jonathan, but haven't you heard? The media was right about Iraq. Which is probably why -- have I missed it? -- Rod hasn't even mentioned in passing Arkin's disgusting comments.

Or anything that would undermine his assumptions about Iraq, even if only to refute it.

Like watching a chihuahua face a tyrannosaurus, it would be greatly amusing to see Rod Dreher try to discredit the arguments of VDH or Mark Steyn. But -- more importantly -- it would be a sign that the man takes seriously the arguments and assertions of those with whom he disagrees.


Kathleen, I believe this blog started in March, but the one-year anniversary of the tome that started all this nonsense is fast approaching this month. We should find some way to commemorate the event.

If we could find some way that would render unnecessary any further criticism of Cap'n Crunch, I would be thrilled.

Let us also discuss his failure to mention the Air Pelosi debacle as well as who is championing her new plane. That's right Abscam's Unidicted Coconspirator John Murtha. If this was Newt Gingrich man they would be having hissy fits.
