I absolutely heart Harry Taylor

He's my man.

And this blog entry has absolutely nothing to do with my need for an opportunity to practice the html to embed a photo, oops, I mean "image."

Not that I want to digress from the lovin' I'm feelin'. Heck, I'm so full of the pash I'll even spread the gooey stuff over the AP's Tim Whitmire, Washington Post's Peter Baker and the New York Times' (Jim Rutenberg the "Charlotte Observer's" Carrie Levine and anyone else who mentioned either Harry's question, the protests outside, OR the fact that they couldn't get takers on the 1000 tickets to attend the event.

Where was Charles Taylor???????

Well, I thought Charles Taylor was a really Big Veterans advocate. Funny thing he didnt co-sponsor or sponsor any of these bill which now are before committie. I found G.K.Butterfield, Walter B. Jones on a lot and even Robin Haynes on 1. But NO CHARLIE BOY! NOT ON EVEN 1 !

Jesus to Judas: You're the man

Theocrats all across North Carolina will be crying in their watery wine tonight. The startling new discovery of the 1700 year old Gospel of Judas - authenticated by some of the most prestigious Biblical scholars - reports that the other gospel writers got the story all wrong.

The Gospel of Judas portrays Judas Iscariot not as a betrayer of Jesus, but as his most favored disciple and willing collaborator.

I wonder what the Bible-as-a-school-textbook crowd over in Greensboro will say now that another pillar of the good book has been toppled. Actually, I don't wonder at all. They'll say the Bible that they know and love . . . the one personally approved by their personal God . . . is the only real Bible, and that all those other stories written at the same time as Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are nothing but the work of the devil.

Hundreds Protest Bush in Charlotte

Apparently, the free speech zone in Charlotte was close enough for protestors to be heard. They shouted, "Do your job," at the motorcade as it passed. There were 300-400 people in the middle of a work day standing on Elizabeth Avenue in front of the community college where Bush was to speak. "Worst President Ever," was shouted by many in the group. The Charlotte Observer has this story.

As a contrast, there were 1000 tickets available and organizers were calling local dignataries multiple times trying to give away the tickets.

Duke Equestrian Team Involved in Own Scandal

I don't know what to say, so I'll just quote:

"We've done nothing wrong, veterinarians will find no evidence—DNA or otherwise—showing that horses have been assaulted, and of course no charges have been filed," said senior Nat Hennerty, captain of Duke's equestrian squad and a two-time Most Valuable Rider, in a prepared statement to the press Tuesday. "I urge the media, the alumni, and the people of the community to remember that we at Duke are an elite university and disregard any obvious hearsay."
