Louvre Gets $20 Million for Islamic Wing

A billionaire Saudi prince has donated $20 million to the Louvre Museum to help fund a new Islamic art wing - a freeform, glassy structure that will bring a modern touch to a neoclassical courtyard.


I thought islamic art was haraam, forbidden. What the heck is this? The Louvre is obscured by that hideous glass pyramid, and now this? Why on earth does the Louvre need a "modern touch" anyway? Rip that stupid pyramid down! It obscures the neoclassical and has no architectural purpose there any way EXCEPT to impose a middle eastern mind set on Western culture. Hmmmm, let's see: Was Shakespeare a muslim? BWHAHAHAHAHA!

At 43,000 square feet, the wing will quadruple the existing space for the Islamic art collection,
French President Jacques Chirac proposed remodeling the wing three years ago, after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, to bridge the divide between East and West.
Figures, chirac. This just steams my clams. How quickly are the french becoming dhimmis anyway?

Sortilege

The word today is sortilege. Ok folks, let's see what we can do with it!


1. Divination by drawing lots.

2. Sorcery; magic.


"If I don't have this file sortileged by noon, my boss is going to blow a gasket!"

"...and to complete the sortilege, add a soup├žon of fresh garlic, and some parsley for garnish!"

"The Kappa Kappa Banga fraternity is throwing a millenium sortilege for the girls at the Gimme Gimme More sorority house."

"My hard drive is sortileged."

"Take a left at the McDonald's on Sortilege Drive and you're there!"

"The doctor told me that torn sortilege can be re-grown, but I don't believe him."

"If a sortilege slithers out from under that rock, I am outta here."

Boy Scouts

Can I hear another hallelujah!

The Senate voted 98-0 to approve the provision continuing the hosting of Boy Scout events as part of massive bill setting Defense Department policy for next year. 98-0! Does that mean even Shrillary voted yea? and Ted? and sKerry? Wow.

The Boy Scouts have been mercilessly targeted over the years and this is great news, especially since this year my grandson is becoming a Scout for the first time, and my Dad was a Scout and a Scout leader.

Our prayers are with the
leaders who were killed on the opening day of the National Scout Jamboree.

The Cross Stays!

Well hallelujah!

"...easily surpassed the two-thirds support it needed for approval"
"But the voters' decision on Proposition A won't be the final word. The controversy heads back to court next month."
What controversy when a clear majority says "KEEP IT!"?

"Attorney James McElroy, whose client filed a lawsuit challenging the presence of the cross on city land in 1989, called the vote meaningless."

Meaningless? Who are they trying to kid?

"It still doesn't mean a damn thing," he said. "Voters should have never voted on it. It's a waste of taxpayers' money.'"
BWHAHAHAHAHA! idiot. Remind me again, just WHO is wasting the taxpayers' money?

It isn't up to the people to decide but (wait for it...)

"McElroy and Paulson preferred to wage their battle in court..."
Typical. Can't win at the ballot box, so they are hoping one judge will see it their way.

Again, BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Thanks to the Ranting Right Wing Howler.

Long Time, No Posty!

From Ranting Right Wing Howler comes a link to If World War II Was an RTS.

Very funny! Puts the new world in a whole new perspective.

Well, I gave up my coffee maker (but not my coffee). I am making coffee the "cowboy way" and it is much better than a drip coffee maker. I have a cowboy coffee pot on my stove and prepare it in the cowboy manner. Although I have read you mix the eggs, shells and all, first and THEN dump. No bitterness at all this way.

Now I have more room on my counter!

It has been a busy, busy, month. I want, for once, to ENJOY a summer. I must make a better effort with my time. I should have brought Herry Potter and the Half Blood Prince to the beach to read, but I have finished it already the day I got it. I am now anxious for the next installment.

Alas, it is looking like work, and more work for the remainder of the summer. I should take heart. I have time off at Christmas and isn't that better after all?
