A bit much maybe, to turn to born-again bible-bashing for spiritual guidance as a young teenager earning £200K a week, but you always felt for the too-worldly-wise 10 year old Angus T Jones playing alongside Charlie Sheen in 2.5 Men for all those years.
The “clashes” headline reads like rival fans bumping into each other.
In fact it’s premeditated fascist attacks.
100 Lazio “Ultras” attacking Spurs fans in Rome
… armed with knives, baseball bats, and knuckle dusters.
Gaza or Rome, what’s the difference ?
[Like I said “attempted murder” is not “rival fans clashing” – get a grip BBC.]
I’m often mentioning “theologians talking sense”, but Sentamu is not one of them. Totally incoherent in his response to questions on the Today programme this morning – just denial.
Nice, but Airbus and the US Army have been doing this for decades.
The side-kick to Robert Pirsig on the 1968 road trip that was Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Quite a character by all accounts; I met him just once in 2008 at the old Pirsig house in St.Paul where he regaled us with stories of bike rides and musical parties in the 60’s. Sad to hear of his passing Sunday 18th November 2012 after failing to recover from an earlier stroke. A character undoubtedly missed, but immortalized for many in ZMM.
The Pirsig’s were the first people in the neighbourhood to get a copy of the Beatle’s White album, and also had a serious HiFi sound system, enough to broadcast into the street, so parties were a frequent and popular focal point for local musos and artists.
Big Pirsig event coming up at MSU, first week in December. Sadly, despite efforts, it doesn’t look like I will be able to be there, just too many other work & travel demands this quarter. Good luck to organizer Chas Pinkava and all involved.
A recurring theme that wise consideration of governance often turns to catholicism. Here business and policy management looking for social ethical rules in catholic teachings; referencing Aristotle, Aquinas, etc, but it’s more than that I believe. Just a holding post for the story reference.
I see the side-bar archive links have all failed … no plug-in update seems to fix it, been unable to find alternative plug-in which gives me both the yearly and monthly collapsability with individual posts visible at the monthly level. Still can’t. Also need to sort out recent post / recent comment links. Still Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn integration via dlvr.it all seem to work fine, and Clicky seems to be a success, so I’ll drop the failed SiteMeter I guess – still counts, but no longer gives reports.
Ho hum. I guess I need to find a new all-singing all-dancing theme with all the necessary widgets built-in. That’ll be a weekend to set aside one day soon.
