Good morning and happy Sunday. Been raining the last several hours -- picked up maybe a quarter inch.

I did finally get the washer put back together, Paddy. Ran it through a cycle without any clothes and everything seemed to function fine.

Hundreds Dead After Article About Song Contest Fails To Mention Palestinians

http://www.preoccupiedterritory.com/hundreds-dead-after-article-about-song-contest-fails-to-mention-palestinians/

Tel Aviv, May 19 – Tragedy struck the Middle East today when a careless reporter omitted the geopolitical context of an annual entertainment event, resulting in the violent killings of 300 in the ensuing riots.

A British Broadcasting Corporation article today covering the Eurovision song contest taking place in Israel’s commercial and cultural hub on the Mediterranean, Tel Aviv, neglected to include a sentence, paragraph, or digression to invoke Palestinian grievances against the Jewish State. The omission sparked violent protests and an earthquake, and scientists fear a plague may also result.

Palestinians recalled the scene with horror. “It was the Nakba all over again,” recounted an eyewitness in the Gaza Strip. “I feel thrice dispossessed: of my land, of my heritage, and of the international attention I’ve been getting for whining about not getting everything I demand and killing all the Jews between the River and the Sea.”

“We’re trying to inform people of the right way to think and feel,” explained Norwich’s colleague John Glubb. “But that’s becoming more and more difficult. I mean, it’s always been difficult, with Jewish control of the media, which of course does not include the BBC, except that I guess it would have to, considering our reach and our importance in shaping narratives. Anyway, what was I saying again? It’s a tragedy, is all, and we can’t let this happen again.”

It’s getting harder and harder to tell satire from straight media reporitng anymore. “We have deviated from our core journalistic mission if we do not cast every event in light of Palestinian suffering,” lamented Senior Editor Edward Norwich.

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Fatwa!

Sven -- glad to hear your washer is back up and running properly. They truly don’t make them like they used to, so get all the mileage you can out of your current model.

For the last few days I’ve been going ’round and ’round with a seller on ebay about a purchase I made. “Delivery guaranteed by May 16” turned into “your package will arrive by May 18″ and is now ” the package is currently moving its way to you and you should receive it anytime soon.” According to the tracking data, the package has been stuck in Compton since 2:10 a.m. on Wednesday.
