Role Models

I think I may have just found some potential role models: Margaret and Helen. Two women born in 1925/26 who have been best friends for 60 years and are now blogging about American politics, and it's fantastic. Good rants delivered as letters to each other, with the response from the other one at the end of the post. Their banner image is the two of them on motorised granny carts on the deck of a ship. Well worth reading. Hands up everyone who wants to be them when they grow up?


An excerpt from The Appreciation or Depreciation of Michael Jackson:
If it were up to me, I would establish a few rules right about now
regarding hypocrisy. Something along the lines of:

  • If you’re Michael Jackson’s father now is not the time to be enjoying the
  • You can’t be Pro-Life and Pro-War at the same time. If one of these
    dispositions has to be in your cadre, then pick one and live with the
  • You can’t deny the right to marry to some and then cheat on your spouse. The
    right to happily marry belongs to all no mater how unhappy it makes you.
  • You can’t tolerate the atrocities of one President for eight years and then
    assign the consequences to one who follows. From this day forward everything was
    Reagan’s fault.
  • The Christian Right should be forced to spend a week in Iran. May the best
    radicals win.
  • The Real Housewives should actually be housewives.

About that last one. I mean it. Really

Also, Coz & Rob, I read this interview in this morning's freebie newspaper and thought of your skeptics society, you may wish to post/discuss/ridicule this:
