temple mount

Ok, ok. Not to expound on my pro-Israeli beliefs any more than normal, but what’s the deal with the violence on Temple Mount today? My understanding is that Jews aren’t allowed on Temple Mount, according to, like, Judaic Law, or whatever it’s called. That their religion doesn’t allow them to set foot on the Mount. Perhaps it’s a local law, and I misunderstood. Either way, where were these people planning to put the symbolic cornerstone of the third temple? It would have to be on top, right? That’s where the other temples were. And cnn said that four hundred Israeli police stayed at Al Aqsa for several hours to ensure the peace. You can’t get any more *on* the Mount than that… Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see Jerusalem entirely Jewish, and Bethlehem as well. I’d even like to see a third temple built, even tho I don’t expect to do much traveling if it brings a messiah, as long as it’s prettier than the Dome of the Rock (and, man, is it pretty). And they’re asking for it, throwing rocks down onto innocent people praying at the western wall. I just don’t think I understand the rules…

bill hicks

I was a big fan of Bill Hicks, in his short and brilliant life. He was my favorite comedian. And then he died. And then I forgot. I’ve just stumbled upon his work again and remembered why I had that original reaction. It’s funny, I still don’t respond to his audio recordings like I do to videos of his work. I can’t say that I found him attractive, but I was always perfectly mesmerized, watching him. I’m sure he would have found it hysterical that the pacing, smoking, ranting, and genuine anger, invariably struck me as so sexual. Yummy. And still does, seven years after his death. As one young lady so eloquently stated, “I can’t help thinking that… well, with that black turtleneck and those little round glasses… how much I could have… well, erm…” I’m with you, sister. I listened to Denis Leary for a while, as a substitute, after Bill was gone, even tho so much of his work was stolen verbatim - and I think the most poignant quote I’ve seen today was this: “the only reason Leary’s a star instead of Bill is because there’s no cure for cancer.”
