Midweek News Roundup:

The last two or three weeks have been very news heavy. That’s funny since I try to avoid politics in December, and I have no radio show to do this week, and last week we didn’t do a political show. It just seems a little weird to me, that’s all.

Is Christmas a pagan holiday? There are articles that say no. H/T Impudent Finger

I’m never confident about history I learn from television, but I remember hearing somewhere that early American Protestants created Thanksgiving as a replacement holiday for Christmas since they thought Christmas to be pagan. Now we get the best of both worlds. Booyah!

The quest for the first artificially created organism.

Not really news, but the economy has been bookin’. I blame Bush.

Sweden’s history of eugenics. Sterilizing 60,000 people up until the 1970’s? Yeah, there’s a reason I question government power.

Cheney has to break 50-50 tie just to get 30 some billion dollars in spending cuts. Why do we vote for RINOs again? Congress spends what, 3 billion dollars a day? So they cut ten days of spending?

Shucks, Saddam is getting beaten. Even if true, I don’t care.

  1. Thanks for the hat-tip on the Christmas origins post. You’ve got a great blog. I’m sorry I didn’t find it sooner. Looks like I missed you at Keegan’s, too. Maybe next time. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

  2. Yeah, I would’ve been bad company anyway, I could barely talk.
