Meanwhile, Back At The Oasis...

date palm One of the many things our military did after invading Iraq was to begin systematically mowing down centuries-old date palm groves. Their reasoning was that "Terr'ist varmints is-a hidin' in there!"

Yes, we fought a war against trees.

I just found out today that the Bible, Deuteronomy 20:20 in fact, says to not cut down fruit trees during war. It's one of the few things in the Bibble which make sense.

I therefore leave you to ponder the hypocrisy of our middle-eastern "crusade".


Speaking of people going hungry, have I mentioned the fact that 17 million American children don't have enough to eat?

I have? Well, it's true.

Local food pantrys help stem the tide of hunger but the current recession is stripping them bare, so in this season of charity and goodwill please consider donating what you can. Every little bit helps.

Visit Second Harvest/Feeding America and they'll tell you all you need to know.

And thanks.
