Believing like Jesus

A wonderful time of year

Monsieur d’Nalgar:  Mr. Lindholm informed me of several corrections that are now reflected herein.  These corrections were made via social media after the letter was published in the Sentinel Record…  The comments that follow were also harvested from social media.  Vendredi 22 décembre 2017 à l’ère commune.  Joyeux Noël à tous!

Dear editor:

It’s a wonderful time of the year.

The world is captivated by the story of the birth of Jesus. It is a … [more]

Preserve this precious heritage

 

Important!

Several months ago, my friend Betty Halaby, an exile from Palestinian Jerusalem, gave me the following article, printed on three pages in all caps. Searching for an online version to copy here, I ran across this fitting preface:

…it has always been a very short distance from serious social science to parody, and many have enjoyed the trip. Probably the most frequently reprinted example is Horace Miner’s … [more]

He was too stuck up

Important!

The following letter to the editor, titled “Crooked stuff”, appeared in the Sunday, October 23, 2017 edition of the Sentinel Record.  It’s typical codswallop from exalted sister Mary Robinson (bless her heart), so no further introduction is necessary.  The photographs that follow represent about a minute of Google searching…

When someone is lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff and you know they’re lying and doing a … [more]

Because a few inky wretches say so

Important!

Hot Springs, Arkansas, with its deep lakes and “sin city” notoriety, is the unnatural habitat of shallow-thinking, obsessive letter writers (I’d throw in fundamentalist, too, but that would just be piling on tautological tomfoolery).  Little brother Lloyd Hoffman (endlessly quoting Billy’s boy Franklin Graham) and little sister Mary Robinson (oy vey! will she stop already with her “America, bless God” adieus?!) are just two that come to mind…

My latest response to these clannish brethren, these self-righteous christianists trying … [more]

Never been more proud

Important!

Well, folks, this is what we’re dealing with…  Once again, with feeling (feeling nauseous), here is another visitation by something even scarier than a Stephen King clown, the one, the only (if only) Lloyd Hoffman.  This unabashed adoration of Donald Trump was in today’s Sentinel Record.  If Jesus still weeps, I know he has to be weeping now.

Kudos for Trump’s speech

Very disappointed

Important!

Following is a letter to the editor, from yesterday’s Sentinel Record, that well illustrates everything wrong with our American government (you know, by the people, for the people, etc., etc.)…

Apparently our thrice-named scion of local fame and fortune is irritated that “his” bought-and-paid-for” US Senators are not performing to his satisfaction.

Disappointing performance

Rights are not bestowed by an oppressor

Why We Are on Hunger Strike in Israel’s Prisons

By Marwan_Barghouti, April 16, 2017

 

HADARIM PRISON, Israel — Having spent the last 15 years in an Israeli prison, I have been both a witness to and a victim of Israel’s illegal system of mass arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners. After exhausting all other options, I decided there was no choice but to resist these abuses by going on a hunger strike.

Some 1,000 Palestinian prisoners have … [more]
