When I say coffee...

I mean Folger's Coffee. There won't be many people old enough and local enough (San Francisco) to recognize that one.

But Folger's is not on the agenda tonight. There are many important things on which I have many important insights at the moment, like what the Pope really said (what he was thinking is beyond me), and the nature of the entity known as Hewlett Packard and how that relates to Mennonites. So, rather than talk of any of those, here is le mot du jour. Passed, as you might say, to us by Orac, who does not take responsibility for its content:

" What does a coffee enema do, and why is it better using Wilsons coffee?"

Gospel music time

I don't always agree with Pharyngula's recommendations on religious reading and listening matter. OK, I don't often agree. But this is priceless.

As if my personal blogroll weren't too long already.

Update: This Internet thing is expanding my musical horizons. I'm quite taken with this. May have to find their other stuff.

Patience rewarded

At SadlyNo (via the Poor Man) we have news of a major threat: the Republicans may be losing the kook vote. In evidence we see a characteristically articulate analysis by Kaye Grogan laying out the reasons for that group which she calls Christians to abandon the party as it has abandoned them.

It's best summarized by mdhatter in the comments:

awe nice! that bit at the end

It’s time to start a new viable third party

I knew if we just waited they’d flinch first.

But that's not all; jpj adds,

So, building highways in Texas is a Christian issue. Huh.

It kind of summons up a picture of Kate going down the road to where they are repairing potholes with a huge sign reading, “Repent Sinners!” and screaming, “Blasphemers! You will burn in hell!” at the workers.

But of course! After all, they're paving it with good intentions.
