I'm Back!

Well, after a fun (but exhausting) week, I'm finally back in the real world, and ready to get back into the swing of things. It appears that I missed a lot, but I'll see if I can catch up on things.

- Newsweek had a report shortly before I left about an alleged desecration of the Koran. It did not take long for the truth to be revealed. Again, the left-tilting media thought they had some big news that could devestate the American military. Just like with Rathergate, Newsweek did not check their facts, and later found (far too late) that these allegations were not true. Unfortunately, Newsweek now has blood on their hands. This should be a harsh lesson for the media; their partisan motivations have led them to be inaccurate, and now people have lost their lives. Absolutely shameful.

- Human cloning is allowed in South Korea. Great, one Korea believes it's leader is a god, and now the other wants to play god.

- Former teacher Letourneau is preparing to wed the former student she had raped. What's worse, people put attention around it as if it were a great thing. Entertainment Tonight is certainly proving itself to be little more than a tabloid.

- Finally, some good news. Anti-Castro protests are being staged in Cuba. The communist regime in Cuba has indoctrinated its people for years that Castro is a great man, and it is good to see that there is still a shade of democracy there.

- Big mistake by the media overseas. Pictures of Saddam clad in nothing more than his underwear were published by The Sun (of Britain). This shows that there is a serious flaw in the security of America's prison system. This needed to be revealed, but solely to the United States government. There may also be a backlash from the Islamic terrorists, who will use this as an excuse to attack more Americans. Finally, questions have risen about whether these photos violate Geneva conventions. This certainly seems doubtful, but as the question has been raised (no doubt starting with the purported MSM), it will persist, being used to mess with the perfectly legal and neccessary trial of Saddam Hussein.

- Good news in entertainment seems to come in threes. Star Wars: Episode III has a big opening weekend, Spiderman 3 has added the funny Topher Grace to its cast, and X-Men 3 has added one of my favorite actors, Kelsey Grammer of Frasier fame, to the cast to play Beast (a perfect fit I'd say).

Okay, I think I've caught up with a lot of the biggest, recent news. In the next week, I'll get back into the flow of things and this blog should get normal updates for most of the summer. Thank you for having patience with my busy schedule.
