So there was Russian president Vladimir Putin talking to young people at a summer camp on Friday about Ukraine, and reminding them — and the rest of the world — that Russia is one of the world’s leading nuclear powers, and “it’s best not to mess with us.” (See National Post report.)

Nudism/Naturism washes away shower hangups

Sigh . . . How much analysis do we need in the wake of an ESPN reporter’s ridiculous item — for which the network apologized — on how St. Louis Rams rookie Michael Sam (who is openly gay) is fitting in with his teammates in the locker-room shower?

There’s an issue I’ve been thinking about tonight, after reading a couple of Associated Press articles: one about President Obama’s decision not to stage attacks in Syria yet, the other about NATO’s concerns over Russia’s ambitions in Ukraine.

Tags

Jon Stewart on The Daily Show delivered a great monologue with words of advice to  ISIS last night (Aug. 27). Among the clever lines was one made in reference to an American who joined ISIS and has since been killed. Apparently, in social media, Douglas McAuthur McCain had listed the Chicago Bulls and Pizza Hut among his favourite things.

Countless rapes and murders in the name of God? Such blasphemy from the psychopaths that make up ISIS. No one should think they are true representatives of Islam. Nobody should judge all Muslims by the actions of that terrorist organization.

Steven W. Thrasher has a great piece in the Guardian about how anti-same-sex marriage people in the United States have finally showed their hand in the court battles there: “They want to own the lives of straight people, too,” says part of the headline over his piece.

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

There has been some talk recently about the Raelians. Some have referred to them as a cult, and as such called into question the motivation behind their sponsorship of the Go Topless events held around the world. The Raelians, for their part, have asked people to separate their beliefs from the cause of topless freedom for women, saying they are speaking up for all women, not just Raelian women.

Does it surprise anyone that my report on Sunday’s Montreal Go Topless event drew many readers — more than 7,300 in my Gazette blog alone, a lot for a little blog like that one, which averages between 500 and 1,200 hits a day.
