The World is Surely Mad

Over 100 people injured in Bangladesh because a crowd of 5000 men fought with police, throwing bamboo sticks and bricks, because the state might provide equal rights for women.

Bamboo sticks and bricks.

The symbolism is impossible to ignore.

Heathens rioting over heathenism.

It is not my job in life to "tolerate" the intolerable.

Diminishing, limiting and enslaving half the human race because of some hopeless "religious" compulsion will just not cut it.


Yesterday, I asked in this space for your insights and ideas about the Harper government's refusal to let MDA sell it's Radarsat-2 to a Minnesota company.

Our good friend Jackie sent this NY Times story.
