Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

I just scanned through your list. I'm more interested in the non-fiction list, some classics, and some interesting new ones to follow up thanks. I had to buy a(nother) darn bookcase a few weeks back to fit all 2005's book purchases in and it's full already. I'm sure this will create protest but when it comes to sci-fi, I can't go past the film Existenz. .

I call it space opera, being on the same level with Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. The Abyss: Special Edition is just about the best science fiction movie I know of The movie version falls kind of flat at the end. It is closely followed by 2001.

Maybe not "have a sense of humor," but I would say that the violence is pretty outrageous. To me, if it's wrong to depict Muhammad as a violent terrorist, then it's even more wrong to carry out violence and terror in the name of defending Muhammad's honor. That's like you falling on somebody after they've made fun of you for being clumsy.

Doesn't change anything for me. I'm not going to pretend to understand this mindset. And I think Kresge is right, that the newspapers aren't beyond reproach. But just because the European media was intransigent in their response to boycotts and protests, doesn't lead me to think violence is in any way a justifiable next resort for the aggrieved. And like I said, in this case it's even stupider IMO, in the face of the subject matter of the cartoon.

Yes, my response is the same. It is not OK for them to blow things up over a picture, just because they did not get the response that they wanted. It's good that the muslim community tried peaceful protest. That does not mean that anyone else has to bend over backwards just because they don't approve. No one commited violence on them. There violent response is unacceptable. This is the kind of shit that starts wars over nothing.

The cartoons were originally commisioned to test the boundaries of free speech in Denmark. An ethnically Danish author who was writing a pro-Muslim children's book on Islam, couldn't find anyone to illustrate it for fear of violence and persecution from the Muslims in Denmark.

It's generational 'sour grapes'. Marching is as valid today as a means to peaceful socio-political protest as any other time in history.
