I think it is also very interesting how some consider homosexuality a choice and is a product of our permissive liberal society. And yet when the Iranian president says essentially the same thing, everyone, and I mean everyone, says "that's ridiculous" and when they heard it an entire nation chuckled and shook their head. This man is a threat to us?

"Dissolved Girl" is another track from Mezzanine and is just as good.
Massive Attack -- Angel

Every Massive Attack is worth investigating and you can get them all here.
Which brings me to a group that introduced themselves to me via email this week...Heroes of Popular Wars. First off, in the most shallow form of commentary, I love the band name.
To give you a clue of what we are dealing with here with H of PW, here is a part of their bio [which seems to be written in poem form]:
From the onset to the encore, from the broken guitar strings to the couple breaking up in the front row.
They're the Heroes of Popular Wars.
Of the two songs I've sampled so far, I really enjoy "Famous on the Moon"...and I've put the old "Recommended" stamp of approval on it. "The 3rd of July" is more ambient...but that's not really an accurate way to describe it...although there is a little Brian Eno in there somewhere...Enjoy.

On Saturday, September 22, 2007 at about 2:00 AM the victim was standing at NE 45th and 15th Ave NE. when approached by a male suspect who asked for a "light".
The suspect displayed a handgun and told the victim to get on the ground and hand over his wallet, which the victim did. The suspect took the wallet and told the victim to walk in the opposite direction. The suspect then fled the area. The victim was not injured. Responding officers were not able to locate the suspect. This incident was assigned Seattle Police incident number 07-391783. If you have any additional information about this crime, please call the Seattle Police at 206-625-5011.
Interestingly, this is from a Wikipedia article about the main street in the University district, The Ave:
Ryan Adams -- City Rain, City Streets
Another factor contributing to the Ave Rats' decline was the extension of organized, gang-related criminal activity on the Ave in recent years. Several groups, whose signature graffiti "tags" can be seen throughout the U. District, contributed to the transition in drug sales from marijuana (formerly sold by Ave Rats and transients) to include the organized sale of methamphetamine and cocaine. This transition has resulted in multiple incidents of gun-related violence, as well as obvious deals occurring in broad daylight. Regular visitors to the Ave could often recognize the same individuals standing at or "patrolling" the same areas, day after day.
The U. District has seen these problems recur. As reported in the University District Herald in 1921, librarian "Miss Mary Baker ask[ed] for police protection from gangs of boys" who were causing what is today described as vandalism and harassment. Librarian Clara Van Sant wrote: "Men hang outside the door to smoke, gossip, and pass comments to ladies coming into the library," behavior that apparently continued through the early 1920s.

- Packers crush the Chargers
- Brett Favre ties Dan Marino's touchdown record
- I received my Season Ticket Waiting List Postcard....what?
So I am 69,193 on the list...things are looking up as last year I was over 72,000 if I remember right...to put this in perspective the entire Lambeau Field has a capacity of 72,922 so I have to roughly wait until nearly all the seats at Lambeau turn over from one person to another...if roughly 3,000 go through the list every year than I will be waiting about 23 years until I can see Brett Favre's daughter Brittany lead the Packers to the Super Bowl again!

Asked if he's dating anyone now, Timberlake said yes, but wouldn't give her name.Is this what passes as interesting discourse..."If you aren't getting married then you are breaking up?" Captain Obvious.
During his appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," Timberlake did talk about his struggles to deal with the paparazzi who shadow his every move. He said tabloids try to turn celebrities' lives into soap operas.
"If two famous people are dating each other, what I've found and I could be wrong, but just in my personal experience, if you're not going to get married, then you're
breaking up," he said. "It's one or the other."
Some people disagree...
Mayor Rudy Giuliani released the following statement on Iranian President
"Under no circumstances should the NYPD or any other American authority assist President Ahmadinejad in visiting Ground Zero. This is a man who has made threats against America and Israel, is harboring bin Laden's son and other al-Qaeda leaders, is shipping arms to Iraqi insurgents and is pursuing the development of nuclear weapons. Assisting Ahmadinejad in touring Ground Zero - hallowed ground for all Americans - is outrageous."
Senator Hillary Clinton released the following statement:
"It is unacceptable for Iranian President Ahmadinejad, who refuses to renounce and end his own country's support of terrorism, to visit the site of the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil in our nation's history."

A Corn Thinly Ill
Some names are suprisingly disappointing, such as John McCain and John Edwards.
The men interviewed by Humphreys wanted what many men want: a sexual encounter that was quick and easy and didn't involve any wining and dining. Some
of the heterosexuals among them had also evolved a tactic for dealing with the
cognitive dissonance that was involved. They compensated for their conduct by
adopting extreme conservative postures in public. Humphreys, a former
Episcopalian priest, came up with the phrase "breastplate of righteousness" to
describe this mixture of repression and denial. So, it is quite thinkable that when Sen. Craig claims not to be gay, he is telling what he honestly believes to be the truth.
"Iowa, for good reason, for constitutional reasons, for reasons related to the Lord, should be the first caucus and primary," Richardson, New Mexico's governor, said at the Northwest Iowa Labor Council Picnic. "And I want you to know who was the first candidate to sign a pledge not to campaign anywhere if they got ahead of Iowa. It was Bill Richardson."
