    Long have atheists cried foul when plastic baby Jesus was placed in front of a courthouse, when public schools cultishly indoctrinated their children with choir songs about silent nights involving baby Jesus, when animated holiday specials suddenly transitioned into stories about the adorable baby Jesus and how three kings gave him expensive jewelry, and he turned milk to chocolate milk and started talking at 6 months instead of the usual 12 to 14 and tested well in placement evaluations, etc., and so forth. Atheists deserve a holiday free from problematic religious associations (or as atheists call it, Insidious Mind Poison),...

    Be careful out there shopping? In a small southern town, she saw a 'Nativity Scene' that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered her: The three wise men were all wearing firemen's helmets. Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, she left. At a quickie mart on the edge of town, she asked the gentleman behind the counter about the helmets. He exploded into a rage, yelling at her, 'You darn Yankees never do read the Bible!' She assured him that indeed she did, but simply couldn't recall anything about...

  • The College Football Czar: Week 14

    The Shinbone: The Frontier of the Free Press ^ | November 29, 2012 | Daniel Clark
    The College Football Czar Week 14 Week thirteen in review: Notre Dame did what it had to do, by defeating another diminished opponent to finish the regular season at 12-0. The Fighting Irish defense stuffed the USC ground game on a late goal-line stand, and harassed freshman QB Max Wittek into two interceptions in a 22-13 victory. That presumably advances them to the BCS championship game in Miami, where they will face the winner of the SEC title game. Alabama and Georgia both dominated their rivalry games, which eliminated all other contending teams from the chase. The college football czar...
  • TCM movie alert: "The Girl From Jones Beach"(1949) starring former President Ronald Reagan 11AM EST

    TCM ^ | 1949 | Peter Godfrey
    My 2nd TCM movie alert for today. TCM will be airing the Ronald Reagan comedy "The Girl From Jones Beach" at 11 AM E.S.T. on Friday, November 30, 2012. It's a fun, goofy comedy that's worlds away from Reagan's dealing with the Soviets and fixing Carter's economic disaster. The voluptuous Virginia Mayo makes a very lovely leading lady for him and was quite fond of Reagan off-screen as well. I remember later seeing her in an interview where she said he was one of her favorite leading men. Don't expect anything deep but for light entertainment it works if you're...

    MIAMI (CBS4) – Carnival Cruise Lines is apologizing to gay passengers booked for an upcoming cross-dressing voyage for telling them they could not dress in drag on the ship, according to CBS4 News partner The Miami Herald. The Miami-based company came under fire in the gay and lesbian community when they told passengers who had booked to attend the Drag Stars at Sea that they must “refrain from engaging in inappropriate conduct in public areas” — or be kicked off the ship Glory. Carnival claimed the themed trip did not adhere to their “family friendly atmosphere”. The trip was coordinated...

    BEIJING - China's top newspaper went to town yesterday with a 55-page online picture spread of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un being named The Onion's "Sexiest Man Alive for 2012", appearing to fall for a spoof by the United States satirical website. Seemingly clueless as to the real nature of The Onion's tongue-in-cheek award for Mr Kim, the People's Daily splashed full-page photographs of the portly young leader riding horses, clapping his hands, waving and clasping children's cheeks on his tours around North Korea. "With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-bred...
