Emma's Pot-bellied Pig: My ...

pet-blogging day, I discovered that there's an interesting blogger named Emma, who owns a pot-bellied pig. She also, as chance would have it, has a post at the top of her site linking to me, and employing the phrase "Che Guevara t-shirt." I once wrote a very mediocre Cure-ripoff song called "Che Guevara t-shirt." Weird!

You missed your chance to submit the song to her ...

Ridiculous?? Just for that Welch, I am going to have a friend of mine bet heavily on the Angels to win the Series. Ever see 'A Bronx Tale?' There was a character named 'Mush.' Everything he touched turned to mush. It was said at the track he would get his tickets back already ripped up.

That's this friend of mine. Same luck.

Back to Disneyland with the Angels my friend!

p.s. Thanks for the link dude.

Emma of Late Night Thoughts is one of the best writers I've encountered blogging. She has written about Cuba before; I think she was 6 when her family fled Cuba. Unlike some of the first generation Cuban emigres, she does not get apoplectic with anti-Castro spew, though she clearly disdains his ways.

If you don't bookmark her and read her stuff now and then, I'd reckon you'll be the poorer for it.

And no, she didn't pay me to say that; just count me as a big fan.

Yeah, and last night I dreamed that there was this moron (you know, in the original sense) who'd post idiotic nothings under the name Clod Hopper.

"Emma's Pot-bellied Pig" sounds like a great title for a Primus song.

Or a very scary mixed drink.

Part of the Blogging Code should be that female bloggers are required to post pictures of themselves. Emma and the wogblog mentioned at kenlayne.com are in violation of the Code.

I also have a story suggestion. I seem to be one of the few "righties" who's very upset about the museum looting and the library fires. It would be interesting to look at people's reactions to this, comparing it with their political beliefs. While I laugh at the hysterics at patrickneilsenhayden or whatever and the poem (yes, a poem) at talkleft.com, I'm not laughing about the nekulturni, philistine cowboys who post things like "that museum done blowed up real good" or "since them there libruls care so much about them there books, let them pay to recover them there antiques" over at freerepublic.

While the war went spectacularly good, there were at least three colossal failures, which I think were caused by our reliance on force and force alone and our inability to think things through thoroughly: failure to protect important sites in Baghdad (including not just the museum and the library, but also the Mukhabarrat mansion with secret files), failure to bring with us properly controlled Arabic speakers/Iraqi exiles to act as go-betweens, and the PR effort (is Iraqi TV still on the air?)

That story would also include the pathetic spin currently being put on this: "A 7-year-old child, or a 7,000-year-old artifact? You must choose one, and only one, immediately. You monster." "There were no antiquities to be stolen." etc.
