Apollo 4 on column of fire

Choices

I’ve been starting to think that Clinton is a better choice than Obama. Obama is a darling of the media, but he’s so undeveloped, enough to make my stomach churn with anxiety, and I’m afraid he will be like a deer in the headlights with this ‘Hussein Osama is a Madrassa-Trained Moslem Terrorist’ slur that’s been spreading and which he has been ignoring, for all I can tell. If there is any time when Obama should be emphasizing his Christianness, it is now, pre-emptively. At least Hillary Clinton knows something about the VRWC.

Bill Shatner’s horrible secret

Now that I can understand spoken Esperanto, I have learned via recorded interview with someone who knows him that William Shatner merely sounded out his role in the Esperanto movie Incubus, the way I learnt to do with Hebrew. I would guess that his tendency to sound it out with a French-speaking accent was a consequence of French being what he was used to sounding like when not speaking English. (Shatner is from Montréal.)

(I wonder what sort of ‘Hebrew’ education Shatner got as a kid.)
