Brief Break from Papers and the Like

Summer courses are still on, and the semester has been extended by one week. Last day of exams on the 29th! Let the countdown begin!

The BBC has proved its cowardice and its subordination to the mighty Zionist powers that be by apologizing for a political joke about Palestine, because it had the word "Jew" in it and so immediately recognized the anti-semitic undertone. The joke, made by comedian Frankie Boyle on a program called Political Animal (hence the political joke!) is as follows:
"I've been studying Israeli army martial arts. I now know 16 ways to kick a Palestinian woman in the back. People think that the Middle East is very complex but I have an analogy that sums it up quite well. If you imagine that Palestine is a big cake, well … that cake is being punched to pieces by a very angry Jew."

Oh the horror!

In other refreshing news, some Iranian crackpot blames the cause of earthquakes on the promiscuity of women. How could we ever have missed that blatant connection? Next thing they'll be telling us is that..oh forget it. The 21st century is just a number for some people, because ideologies are slipping back hundreds of years. It almost makes us wistful for the witch burnings.
