Last Chance

This is the final boarding call for those of you who want to get your name in the limited edition version of “The Sagan Diary,” as members of the doomed Company D; after today no more name requests can be taken. So get those orders in.

I’m looking at the pdf of the page layout of “The Sagan Diary” right now, as it happens. It looks really nice. No matter what version of the book you get, I think you’re going to be happy with it.

Oh Noes! I Caught Teh Izlam!

First, a quote from Virgil Goode, US Representative, in his press conference yesterday, in which he defended sounding the alarm against the prospect of more Muslims coming to the US and — brace yourself — possibly being elected to Congress:

“I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America and to prevent our resources from being swamped.”

And what sort of values and beliefs can we expect from those Muslim hordes? Here’s a fine example of their “values”:

Local Muslim leaders lit candles yesterday at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to commemorate Jewish suffering under the Nazis, in a ceremony held just days after Iran had a conference denying the genocide.

American Muslims “believe we have to learn the lessons of history and commit ourselves: Never again,” said Imam Mohamed Magid of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, standing before the eternal flame flickering from a black marble base that holds dirt from Nazi concentration camps… If anyone wants to make Holocaust denial an Islamic cause, he said, “we want to say to them: You cannot use our name.”

Yes, I can see why we don’t need those kinds of values here in the United States. I may stay up all night in terror that we might see those sort of values take root here in my homeland in my lifetime. And I understand why Virgil Goode would be opposed to them, as the sort of values and beliefs these awful Muslims are exhibiting would surely spell the end of his political career if they caught on. I trust that Virgil Goode will work ceaselessly to assure that they will not. Because that’s just the sort of character he is, and the sort of character he has.
