Parents Starved Children 'On God's Orders'

"Mwangi told police officers he had been instructed by God at Christmas to fast with his family until further notice. His family had drunk only water during the weeks of fasting.


"The six children, aged two to 11, were unable to stand up on stick-thin legs, and all were suffering from skin infections and hair loss. The youngest child weighed little more than a baby."



No word yet on whether this story will be incorporated into the attractions at the Holy Land Experience.

Sorry to see Ghost Rocket go on hiatus . . . perhaps I will attempt to be a little more Ghost Rocket-ey until he returns . . .

" . . . And here is where we get to the rare but entertaining disorder.  It is known as 'alien hand' syndrome, and individuals with the condition find that they are not always in control of one of their hands.  The interesting bit is that during these episodes, the hand does not lie there limply at their side, but rather goes off on its own, either ignoring what the rest of the body is doing or actively working against it.  Sufferers tell of the 'alien' hand grabbing their other arm to stop them from bringing a fork to their mouth, slamming a door on them to stop them from entering or leaving a room or building, or even attempting to steer their car off the road.  Patients explain that they have no idea when the hand is going to act up and can only watch as it does its thing. . . .

The Rejection Collection and Rejection Slips, a blog--both of which I could contribute voluminously to . . . courtesy of Girlhacker.

I got a rejection letter back from Glimmer Train over a year ago--a publication I have never read because upon scanning it seemed to purvey what Anne Rice once called "protestant fiction" (you know, Updike-ian well-told tales of bourgeois ennui) . . . but I sent them this story because they paid well and I thought this piece could loosen them up a little. Their rejection letter was particularly condescending, I thought, in that the top part had several choices of rejection terms from which to choose from, a tiny box flanking each with which they could render their final mark (they had marked mine the one which said, "Not for us, but please send more.")--but underneath this, was a ton of quotes--pendantic quotes, from other writers about how to improve your prose.

Well,

I wrote next to the, "but please send us more" part: "As if!" and wrote over the whole top part: "BITE ME.", then ripped off the top part, put it in an envelope showing the return address as drmenlo.com, and sent it back to them.

The story in question was Copernicus Grape Loves Ivy, and Ivy Loves Copernicus Grape.

" . . . The driver went on to describe an occasion on which he was driving the First Lady and a couple of her (female)friends through a poor area of Washington DC. They passed a beggar, and as they did so the First Lady expressed her disgust for the mendicant, adding 'He wouldn't be a bum if he had a piece of ass.' The driver was able to shed no light on how or why she had arrived at this conclusion, stunned as he was by the coarse nature of her observations. Then they passed two young black women with babies. 'There go two welfare cases. They make me sick. They're too lazy to work', said Senator Clinton, champion of mothers and children everywhere."--courtesy of Counterpunch

Waiting for the news to break

I've been waiting for the magic kiss

I've been up all night, looking down at the city lights

It's just a little bit of everything

That brought me down to this


Living in the afterglow

Of a flame that burned out long ago

And when the darkness fades from my window shades

It'll be a little bit of everything

That brought me down to this


No, no, no...

" . . . We were adopting a policy that says American people deserve significant choices between two major parties and third parties. As far as Leninist strategy, Tony Coehlo and the corporate Democratic National Committee—which spawned Clinton, Gore, and Lieberman—have for 20 years destroyed the progressive agenda and excluded citizen's groups from being able to affect policy in Washington, D.C., as they lunge into protective imitation mode with Republicans. That means the Democrats' strategy was to defeat the Republicans by taking Republican issues away from them and becoming more like them."

--from Ralph Nader Lashes Back! . . . via Robot Wisdom.

"The Times believes there should just be two parties, and a party like the Green Party, in that memorable phrase, 'clutters' the playing field. A remarkable position for a newspaper that believes in the First Amendment and has excoriated politicians for corrupt campaign funding that the Green Party wanted to eliminate. That will go down as the most indefensible intellectual exercise that ever appeared on New York Times editorial columns, which were basically rantings. The Washington Post invited me to speak at their editorial office, and The Wall Street Journal invited two op-eds. The Times never did either.

"Tom Friedman is a source of humor. He's so off the edge that he bellows in his column, he rages, it really makes our day. Here's a man who fancies himself an expert on global trade and has never read global trade agreements. I would give him the nomination as the columnist who has traveled more extensively and regularly around the world and has learned the least."

From the Department of Justice/Immigration & Naturalization Service (via the EPA website) comes this: Notice of Intent To Prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Construction of a Detention Facility in the Seattle,Washington Area . . .


" . . . FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard Diefenbeck, Director of Facilities and Engineering Division, 425 ``I'' Street, NW, Washington, DC 20536, Telephone 202-514-3099."

Is this Diefenbeck any relation to the Richard Diefenbeck listed by the Association of Research Libraries' List of Electronic Journals & Zines (circa. 1994) as the Editor-in-Chief (and Founder/Creator) of The Georgetown Gonzo? . . . "Georgetown University's unsanctioned, underground, untasteful, unboring satire/humor/culture publication. *One of the first publications created to take advantage of the World Wide Web's capacity to hyperlink.*" . . . where previously it had said [pp]: "The first college humour publication to be brought online"? . . . hmmmm.
