For more inspiring news: mint flavored condoms are popular in Iran! The govt produces condoms and hands out free pills. Couples can't get a marriage license without proof that they've attended contraception classes. And they have a high literacy rate.
Let's all root for Iran to succeed in the struggle for a healthy democratic country. This is a big step.

Wow, I posted my dissatisfaction with the X Files the same day as Crat and today Lileks chimes in:
"Look, Chris Carter: you donít step on Supermanís cape. You donít spit into the wind. You donít pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger and you donít kill the Lone Gunmen."
Yeah!

Something may be about to happen in the middle east. Saudi troops are massing on the Jordanian border. Saudi doesn't have much of an army and they're not really that into posturing this way. Watch and see.

Cheers to the Pope for denouncing sexual-abuse by priests. He even called it a crime.
I'm dismayed that it took so long but I'm glad he took a strong stand.
This may go a ways toward restoring trust in the church.
However... Several Grand Juries are investigating the coverup. It would please me more than words to see the church indicted under the RICO act.
