This can't be the new normal, can it? . . .

The report says that a young woman couldn't enter a stranger's home in the ordinary way, like, maybe ringing the doorbell or knocking on the door.  So the young woman, being unusually small, took off her black dress and crawled through the doggie door.  The homeowners, hearing odd noises, investigated, and found her sitting in the bathtub, no water, naked.  She was in due course arrested.  When being taken into custody, she told the cops she didn't think she was doing anything wrong, sitting naked in a bathtub in a home she entered through the doggie door.

What do you say to an unknown naked girl in your bathtub?

And what's going on between the ears when a young woman thinks it's okay to take off all her clothes and crawl through the doggie door into a stranger's home?

I know, nobody is ever actually told, specifically, that as you go through life you should never take off all your clothes and crawl through a doggie door and go sit naked in a strangers' bathtub. 

But we all pretty much agree that that's something not to do, without being told.  Right?

I know this must be true, because in all these years I've never met an unknown naked woman in my bathtub.  I have a camera for just in case.

Where do terrorists come from? . . .

Many observers of public affairs express fear that all of the many no-neck mouthbreathers who make up the political right will collectively rise up against poor, pitiful not-hurtin-nobody Muslims, because said mouthbreathers are ignorant Americans, "clinging to their guns and religion."

No sign of it yet.  Wonder here do we keep 'em?

Americans pretty much know that not all Muslims are terrorists, so there isn't any general persecution of Muslims forthcoming.  And that's the truth.

On the other hand, while not all Muslims are terrorists, the terrorists have all been Muslim.  Not one damn Buddhist in the lot.  And that's also the truth.

So, if anybody is looking to find a terrorist, I wouldn't spend a lot of time looking at the membership of, say, some Presbyterian church.

We need to do something . . .

It's far too easy for people to go to kitchen utensil conventions and to buy pressure cookers from unlicensed vendors there.  We need tougher laws governing selling of pressure cookers, licensing, and background checks.  Because if we can save one life, and because shut up.

Latest science news . . .

Some scientists have been studying vertebrate brain structure, and there are similarities, in all vertebrate nervous systems, no matter whether fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, or mammal.  After much brilliant work with that part of the brain that deals with hoots and calls and language in humans, scientists can now understand the meaning of sparrow bird calls.

It turns out that "tweet tweet twitter peep twitter," doesn't mean, "good morning to all the world!"

It means, "Back off or die, motherfuck!"

John Kerry be clowns himself again . . .

Kerry said that we are "all united," and North Korea will "never be accepted as a nuclear power."

Never be accepted!

He went to elite schools, was admitted into elite clubs, and has unwaveringly thought of himself as one of the superior, able to identify all who fail to measure up for membership in his exclusive digs.

Hey John.  You don't get to say who gets to be a nuclear power.  If the get ahold of a bomb, they're a nuclear power.  Q. E. D.
