Quote of the Day

I'm still not here. However, Mark Steyn's latest exercise in dot-connecting is just too important to let go without flagging:

If you've ever wished your Third Grade daughter had a better rack, good news!

ABC reports that [Abercrombie &Fitch] has a new line of bikinis for preadolescents that feature padded, “push-up” bikini tops for girls as young as eight years old.

The Pundette calls this "the sexualization of childhood". But it's worse than that: it's the abolition of childhood, and the mass conscription of the young for a hideous social engineering project. From the United Kingdom:

Children as young as 11 could soon be asked about their sexuality without their parents’ consent, it has emerged.

Teachers, nurses and youth workers are being urged to set up pilot studies aimed at monitoring adolescent sexual orientation for the first time.

A report commissioned by the Government’s equalities watchdog found that it was ‘practically and ethically’ possible to interview young children about their sexuality.

Wonderful! So we'll be available to identify any Third Grade boys thinking about a sex change and issue them with Abercrombie & Fitch push-up bras. A state commissar hectoring grade schoolers into approved orientations isn't merely "the sexualization of childhood" but the totalitarianization of childhood.

In a way, this is part of the same story as Libya, and I'm not so sure that in the long run it isn't the more important part. Islam will readily acknowledge our technological superiority: If you want to operate a no-fly zone over Benghazi or send an unmanned drone into Waziristan, we have the capability and they don't. The difference is that Islam thinks our technological superiority doesn't matter - because we're unmanned drones in a more basic sense: we believe in nothing except the most transitory and dreary self-gratification, an endless adolescence that begins with a push-up bra at eight and continues through free government condoms for 30-year olds. Not only do the surging Muslim populations in European cities have no wish to "assimilate" with such a culture, they do not believe they will have to - for they have bet that such a society cannot survive.

I am tempted to vote strictly on hotness next year. The possibilities: some combination of Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Nikki Haley--not seeing any bad choices here.

Fox is reporting that Renault is considering reviving the Renault 5, known in the U.S. as the "Le Car". Our 1976 model lived up to its color, bright yellow. Its only saving grace was great gas mileage but it was the garage equivalent of a hangar queen, especially in its latter years.

Aging Hippies And Union Thugs Descend Upon My Town By The Thousands Hundreds Dozens?

Yeah, today was's great "defend the workers" rallies across the country to protest the fiscal responsibility of the great State of Wisconsin.

The word apparently went out and it was picked up by a local chiropractor (who no doubt is on's e-mail spam list) and he took it upon himself to organize one of these things in my town, right in front of a school. Though they had no permit and the School Superintendent plead ignorance over the whole affair, the local police let them gather.

I drove past the demonstration at 5:45pm, 15 minutes into it (what should have been the "height" of the event) and by my estimate there may...MAY...have been twenty people, about half of which were holding signs.

One of the signs said "America has a Koch problem". I couldn't help wonder how many people driving by read this to themselves pronouncing the name like "watch" and thinking "What do they have against Ed Koch?"

I wanted to get pics but a couple of police were stationed at each end, probably to keep an eye open for conflict, and I couldn't get close enough. But really, this was pathetic.

And you just know each of these rent-a-protesters were cursing Japan for stealing all the media oxygen.

Friends, please try to refrain from spritzing the cleaner all over your windshield while headed directly into the sun.

(And for those of you from Murrland who are no doubt asking yourselves, "Self, why did Tom say that?" it's because you can't see anything through all that refracted glare! Not that it matters much to you, of course.)

Thank you. This has been a Llama PSA.

Life on the Construction Site

The post headquarters is getting the latest in a series of renovations since we moved in almost five years ago. This round consists of gutting and rebuilding the bathrooms (now complete) and doing a complete kitchen makeover. We are now starting our third week without complete use of the kitchen. The new cabinets, flooring, and a gas range are in, the refrigerator is back in its proper place, and we are awaiting granite countertops and a new sink. Until then, the dishwasher cannot be used which means we are camped out in the dining room living off Chick-Fil-A, microwave food, and paper plates. It was an adventure for the first few days but the novelty has long since worn off.

Gratuitous Nats Observation

Nats Hat.jpg

I can't help remarking on the fact - even though it is completely meaningless - that the Nats have taken the first two spring training games off the Mets.

I note this partly because I've got a serious itch for the season to start and I need to do a little scratching, and also partly to see if Gary is paying attention.

What say you, Gary? I haven't followed the Mets much in the off-season except that I have seen a bunch of headlines about money troubles in the front office. How are things shaping up otherwise?
