The Loony Left ("John Cusack's personal chef"), the Loony Libertarians (the "Constitutional Sheriffs Association"!), religious enclaves (the Amish, of course) and the Wacky Health Nuts Who Say Hot, Poop-Covered Eggs And Stuff Cure Allergies and Cancer have all found a common ground: the government crackdown on raw milk. (Much more about the battle over raw milk here, subscription-only in the New Yorker.) I also like raw milk! But I also hate dying from bacteria.
The war between the anti-vaccine people and the people who understand science and the people who blog on the HuffPo is really heating up this week! The current target of their ire is Playmate and former MTV golden girl turned New Ager Jenny McCarthy. Who, apparently, is killing people with her anti-vaccine chatter on Larry King and other venues for crazy-talking. Well, she was killing me in "Scream 3."
NOTHING brings me greater pleasure than WorldNetDaily's email list. Today's subject line: "Earth's 6015th birthday this year!" It's an important way to keep in touch with the Other America. (Maybe I'll actually buy this book, too! After all? "This is one of the most important literary, historical and Christian works you'll ever own, a treasure for any home library. It's a must for your homeschool library.")
Ain't no stopping them now. Gays now will not rest until they can wed in any state they wish-even the crappy states! Reports the Times: "'It's a bad day for the country,' said Brian Brown, executive director of the National Organization for Marriage." That's right Brian: FUCKING UP THE COUNTRY'S DAY is gay job number one. Related! Iraq's Newly Open Gays Face Scorn and Murder.
