Danish cartoons

Wow. Since when do Danish cartoons get so much exposure? (on blogs, for starters: here, here, here, here, here, and here...i could post more links...but that's unneccessary). The original cartoon can be found on Wikipedia.
What I find interesting about most commentaries is that they do not consider how Christians in the United States would react if similar cartoons were published, but with Jesus instead of Muhammed. No, the response probably wouldn't be violent, but it would be angry.

Continuing to follow the My Space/Facebook hype...
...the first instance I've found of serious abuse of My Space (link from Drudge).
The reason I say hype is that recently The post, the Connection, the Arlington Sun, and my school's newspaper published a bunch of articles on my space and facebook.
Quotables: "However, are MySpace and Facebook really they claim to be, 'a place for friends,' or are they secret domains for deceiving teenagers?" and (from a different article) "I could comment on the sheer dullness, the fact it seems to exploit voyeuristic tendency or the inane manner of the chatter. But we all know that already."
To be entirely honest, I'm on Facebook but not MySpace. In case anyone wanted to know...
(The pretentious-sounding quote is from my ex-boyfriend. Note the prefix ex and the word pretentious and how I put them in the same sentence. There might be a connection.)


  • (a few days old) - cool NPR story on Tannen's new book on Mother-daughter speak. Her examples sound like me and mom when we're both in bad moods...
  • Wikipedia as tool for spin....hmm. the possibilities.
  • My Stars concert buddy moved back to New Orleans.....besides being sad he's gone, I need a new concert buddy and Stars finally sold out!
