Round the Horn. An Irwin J. McIckleson Production



Greetings all. This is Irwin J. McIckleson, Fictional 1910's Plutocrat. I will report that Thanksgiving was a roaring success. I was a little concerned that the men wouldn't warm to pan fried turkey with asian spices, so I forbade them to eat dinner the night before. But given the way the men woofed the food down, that may not have even been necessary! So it was very gratifying.

To work.

Archy has
comments on whether the situation in Iraq can be properly called a civil war.

Bark Bark Woof Woof discusses
the theory that President Bush's war in Iraq is really everybodies fault. I don't put much stock in this thinking; when you are in charge you have to take the blame. That's the price you pay for getting the largest shar of the pie, and from what I can tell, President Bush is getting a very large slice of pie indeed.

Dohiyi Mir has
a quote from President Bush that shows a small amount of self-awareness, although it seems likely that this self awareness was unintentional.

Bloggg has news of a
new symbol for the condition of Autism. Cheery made me rewrite this bit to be more considerate to the sufferers of Autism. I'm not sure what I said that was wrong, but presumably your understanding of Autism in the future is greater than mine.

According to Collective Sigh, one of the possible Democratic Candidates in 2008, Barak Obama, shares a moniker with the deposed President of Iraq.

Correntwire
argues that there is a certain depth of chicanary and falseity in your future age, and that you future people require more media figures to point it out.

THE FULCRUM has
a piece on our current Supreme Court's lack of scientific knowledge. That's kind of sad when you think about it - modern society is built on science. How can you rule justly if you don't understand the fundementals of science?

ECHIDNE OF THE SNAKES has
some thoughts on the language that people use, and how one should avoid certain words. It is interesting how there are so many slurs for every ethnicity and color, as well as for woman and the poor white, and yet when you get around to the white male plutocrat class there are very few, comparitively. White Male Plutocrats run the show, though, so I guess this isn't that surprising.

The Countess has
a discussion of really good Popcorn, which makes me want to go get some Popcorn.

And that is it for another week. Hope you all have enjoyable and productive weekends.
