Damned in a single sentence: She has vociferously campaigned against embryo experimentation, Sunday trading, pornographic videos and fluoride.

What at first looks like help for people with poor imagination faculties rapidly grows into a Cronenbergish story of dubious-taste therapy that may be more damaging than the experience it aims to relieve. Buy the film rights!

I was sent spam for "one-click history deletion" today. Oh, the history deletion button. Shiny, shiny button ... it didn't turn out to be what I thought it was. *sigh*

I'm not going to link to what Orson Scott Card had to say about same-sex marriage. Instead, something positive: when I read something online I hate, I go read Morford. He sets the world to rights.

On the subject of despairing in all humanity, I've added up the times and I think I can make it to see Dogville and Le Corbeau in a single evening. Oh yeah, beat down that human spirit.

But, what's this? A minimate Frodo? Joy reigns again! (Also available, Aragorn, Legolas, Twilight Frodo ... and an uruk-hai in chain mail pants!)

The world's not so bad after all.

1. Flouride is a liberal conspiracy is it? Well, we could all be righteous gum-diseased toothless Conservatives I suppose.

2. VR therapy ... the sad thing is, that probably works in the opposite direction as well. Perhaps our torture restrictions need to be updated.

3. Moford link lead to climate change story ... guess I'm more angry now. ;-)

4. LOTR minimates! Me I want! :-)

This is what happens when kids are given too much fluoride. My own front teeth are naturally (before lots of drilling and dental work..) somewhere between "mild" and "moderate" going by those pictures. That was from living in the states when my teeth were forming, and getting fluoride in everything. I'm another anti-fluoride person myself ;-)

Well, you might be happy to hear that one of Hawai'i's island-counties decided *again* to reject flouridation.

Personally, I'm ambivalent, but then didn't enjoy flouridated water until well late in life.

kneejerk ranters damage the causes they support
I was more entertained by the combination than the actual causes -- I'm not in favour of no controls in any of those areas, but I prefer it when the arguments are *reasoned* rather than *vociferous*.
