Rascism

Interesting week for me as regards this topic. Here I've been wrestling with this topic as it relates to D.W.Griffiths' "Birth Of A Nation" for the "Movie Chronicles" while the issue has been flying around me all week (for the record criticism of this movie starts with the "I'm Black and I found it...

I'm Back !

I don't know if anyone even noticed I was away. There was a combination of things that kept me away from my blog. Family matters tops the list. We have been having renovations at home involving a lot of paint - I got a massive headache whenever I was home so I stayed away... but there was also a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Irreverand Terry Jones

Paster poser Terry Jones is he who promise last year he wouldn’t be burning the Koran. “Not now, not never” were his words. This year he did after a mock trial where the verdict came first and the trial afterwards. What followed (to date) has been the deaths of 20 people and the wounding of 80 more...

Whew!

There are some things I could write about from last week:- Charlie Sheen's meltdown. Has anyone noticed the poetry of his ravings? And they are ravings.

Christchurch 2

It’s not all doom and gloom. Here’s two stories. Every day there’s a television update/briefing (possibly available on your cable TV, definitely available on YouTube). These include a NZ Sign Language translator on the left of the screen. On Tuesday last a telecommunications expert came on. “There’s... Sign in to see full entry.

The Christchurch Earthquake

“There is no part of New Zealand where we can guarantee that you will not be killed in an earthquake.; there are some parts in which we can guarantee you will not be killed as often” (Prof. D.W. McKenzie, quoted by Gordon Candy) First, I’d like to thank everyone who has made a donation. At this... Sign in to see full entry.
