The Morning News (by Cameron)

There’s some funny or disturbing news in the world, depending on how you take it. First, I guess the Al-Qaeda is moving from death and destruction to DOS attacks, though I honestly don’t know where they’re going to get Net access out in the middle of the Afghan desert. I didn’t even think they knew what a network was. Maybe this was Worldcom’s doing, though I think they’ve got enough problems already. In my opinion, it’s all a bunch of FUD.

Another headliner I saw is the lesbian sperm bank. For some reason, I just find that really funny, though I’m not in favor of same-sex parents.

An interesting tidbit at CNN mentions that a rainforest sprung up right after a massive asteroid hit the earth killing the dinosaurs (umm, the asteroid killed ’em, not the rain forest; unless they got some pretty nasty mosquitos…). Maybe we should request an asteroid here out west; we can get some of the rain we need.

  1. The news is getting more and more interesting each day.

  2. You know, all this post-9/11 paranoia is really getting on my nerves. This supposed possibility of Al Qaeda blowing up dams with their computers is just absurd. Whenever something big happens, the media jumps all over it and won’t cover anything else for weeks. It’s great for ratings, I’m sure. And then afterwards, they continue to flog the dead horse relentlessly for as long as anyone continues to care. So obviously, sustained paranoia is great for them; people keep watching the news programs, because if someone’s gonna try to kill you again, it’s best to know just how they might try next, right? Maybe if we didn’t get such an absurd spin on all this wild theorizing, things would get back to normal.

    As for the lesbian sperm bank… well, there’s not a whole lot to say about that, except the quote saying that lesbian couples had some fundamental natural right to have children struck me as funny. Sure, all women are built to have children, but nature sort of requires another party of the male sort to be intimately involved. Just because we’ve figured out how to get around that doesn’t mean any sort of ‘natural rights’ have been expanded. If you tried to get me to approve government funding for poor lesbian couples to receive this ‘service’ for free because of their natural right to bear children, I’d have to decline.

  3. Dan, how come this is your last guest author entry? Did you come to fisticuffs with Cameron over his topic choices? Or did you feel like a parent who doesn’t trust can’t bear to leave his baby with the sitter?

  4. None of the above. I was going hiking in in Zion National Park and asked Cameron if he would be a guest author during my absence. The reason he stopped is because I got back. Now that he has his own blog, I don’t have a guest author when I go on vacation.
