Tids and Bits

Rep. Tom Tancredo says that, if the U.S. is nuked, America should respond by destroying Islamic holy sites. A fine idea.

But the 'Slamics are doing it themselves, as radical clerics approve of demolishing historical buildings tied to Moe himself, fearing the veneration of sacred sites leads to idolatry.

This is one iconoclasm I can get behind.

Random thought: If you needed a word that meant "like a convent," could you use "conventional?"

How about the new Hummer, the H3? Each one of these things gets less and less cool, or "Hummerican," to coin a neologism.


Humvee: Manly. H2: Middling. H3: Metrosexual.

How am I supposed to make up for deficits in my masculinity with one of these things? It's so ... curvy. It'd make more sense to save money and buy a Jeep Liberty.

I also liked when the Taliban idiots blew up those big Buddhist statues. Yeehaw! As for your vocab question, the word you're looking for is "conventual."
