fic: Deep Water (PG)

Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Title: Deep Water
Spoilers: None, set Season Two
Notes: Prompted by seldear’s Change is the Road from Childhood and the phrase 'I hope you're not thinking about jumping.' Sorry for the wait. Real life is such a pita. On the other hand, this sucker went a lot longer than I intended. I swear, the next one is going to be an honest-to-God ficlet.

You know what this means.

Given that this is the Iranian deputy Foreign Minister...

"Look, you can see Keith Richard's colostomy bag!"

So I went to a Superbowl "party" at my aunt's friend's house... basically it was just the eight of us sitting around snacking and watching their massively huge television. The TV spots were okay, I thought, not great. The game itself... well, half the time I couldn't even remember who was playing, so that should tell you something right there.

Watching the Stones' halftime show was downright nauseating, however. The fact that you couldn't understand most of what they were saying was bad enough, but the chicken lips and under-arm flab... ew! Completely put me off my pizza.

Oh, and speaking of music, let's not even mention what was done to the national anthem. Ugh.

Religion of peace

I don't think I've commented on the "cartoon jihad" against the Danes yet, and really I don't need to, because Brit Hume says it all right here.
"What is striking about this is what offends these Muslims who are protesting and these imams. Does the slaughter of innocent people in many parts of the world in the name of Allah offend them? Is that a sacrilege worthy of protest? No, not in the least. No, cartoons published five months ago in a -what- for people who live in Gaza and Damascus is an unknown and unheard-of newspaper--that's what's offending them. Not to mention, of course, the kinds of slurs against Christians and against the Jewish faith that are regularly spread abroad in the Arab world by the mass media and by these imams.

"This is really a disgrace. And it is a disgrace not least because of the obvious, howling double standard involved here. The really great sins are ignored. And this trivia is protested."
