I took a bachelor's in Chinese language and literature. I've used it as a language teacher (both ESOL and teaching Chinese), diplomat, and translator.

Also, Finland is a country where nobody goes to Hell--the Devil himself can't learn their language.

It’s Time to Scrap Black History Month

Well, we might also note the following as well: (1) Samuel Sewall, one of the judges at the Salem witch trials, wrote a pamphlet entitled _Selling Joseph_, in which he excorciated the African slave trade as evil and unchristian. (2) Jonathan Edwards, while a slave owner, once got in trouble with a congregation because he admitted a black slave to communion while refusing the master. He also believed that the destiny of America's blacks was to be Christian peers of the whites. (3) Mixed race people have always been part of the American landscape, leading to many white people carrying black genes. (4) Maybe the Ellison case calls us to view the history of the Civil War as more complicated than slavery--even though slavery was unquestionably important in the conflict. (5) Give due credit to the "anti-racist" strain in white American thought and culture. (6) Allow all Americans of multiple ethnic strains to recognize and identify with all sides of their heritage.
Hayes herself is a sleazy sort. She entered into a sham marriage with an Ethiopian in order to get him immigration benefits, which is a major crime.
The O's stance on partial birth abortion is one reason why I think he has no moral compass whatsoever except a generalized Leftist hatred of "the Man".
Advice for Christian Rightist politicians: If they want to make you look like a yokel with a question about whether you believe in evolution or not, say: "I, of course, respect science. But if evolutionary materialism, which in the 20th century along murdered, imprisoned, and displaced 165 million people over the political definition of 'progress', it deserves all the criticism it can get--and you, friends in the media, have failed your professional duty if you are not starting to ask a few critical questions about it yourselves."
I also understand that Kitzhaber's fiancee was also married to an Ethiopian in order to get him immigration benefits. This, by the way, is a big offense under US immigration law.

Why No Swimsuit Issue of Men?

Yeah, I get the point. But, speaking as a red-blooded hetero male, why aren't there swimsuit issues with somewhat more curvacious models? All the ones I see in SI are so bleepin' skinny!

It started with the Saturday morning cartoons we watched as kids. Maybe if Bugs Bunny had ended every film dead and well-cooked on Elmer Fudd's table, we'd be less inclined to admire smart alecks and people who get away with things they really shouldn't get away with. Sure, I'm upset by the frequent dishonesty we get from the media. But we now have a culture in which truth isn't all that important, where supposedly our most advanced intellectuals see reality as a social construct, and image is valued over substance.
