Day Nine, Laziness Ensues

I really need to get out more.

I still call this Squaw Peak, although they hastily changed the name to "Piestewa Peak" some years ago. Most of the businesses around here are still called "Squaw Peak X" (like the bowling alley), but they DID change the 51 to the Piestewa Peak Parkway.

Very tired. All day on NPR they were talking about the new study which proves that 8 - 10 hours of sleep a night is better for weight control than diet and exercise. *sigh*

Pastor Terry Jones may in fact be a jerk, a bigot, an idiot, an insensitive un-Christian moron, and many other such descriptive terms (who certainly doesn't know his bible very well), but this is America, and he has every right to be so. Which may be a shame, but that's the whole point, right? I just wish we could get it across to Muslims that not all Americans are like that, AND, more importantly, we understand that not all Muslims are jihadists.

We went out for Thai food tonight because, due to an irritating, non-emergency plumbing problem, I can't wash any dishes. Therefore the kitchen is a mess and we figured someone else could do the cooking and washing up. Red curry shrimp. Nom.

Me too -- I'm big on the Constitution, as long as it's a mere freedom of speech issue. He has every right.

But you still can't shout "Fire!" in a crowded movie theatre. (Unless there is one? Still fuzzy on that one...) There are consequences to inciting to riot.

Well, I understand he's yet to get a permit for his hate burnathon, so maybe he won't be able to do it after all.

I think what bugs me most are the interviews I've seen where he is spot-on convinced that Jesus would want him to do this. Um, dude?

We can but hope!
