Weird stories around the net

Activist Pam Geller is being sued by Muslims again...

For a photo of her wearing an itsy bitsy teeny weenie polka dot bikini....

Muslim prisoners in Michigan filed a lawsuit against Pamela Geller for “wearing a Poke a Dot Bikini In Front of our eyes. We are offended.” They demanded their freedom claiming their civil rights were violated.

And for those of you under age 50, it refers to this song.


Ann Althouse links to a NewYorker story that says Trump is not a fascist, but a "know nothing".

Not being one of the groups that these bigots targeted, she seems puzzled at the accusation, but I agree with this comment:

The Know Nothing label is appropriate. Instead of fearing Catholics, he and his followers fear Islam. Instead of the Pope ordering society, he stokes the fear of Sharia Law. Mexicans have replaced Irish and Southern and Eastern Europeans who want to take our jobs and lower our wages.
True. And that is why when NPR spouts stuff about "white people", those of us who are from ethnic minorities are puzzled and offended.

"The truth is out there"....but that phrase comes from a fictional TV show...some folks can't tell truth from fiction.


there is an old phrase that goes: If you want friend in .....(Washington, Hollywood, fill in the blanks) get a dog.

Well, scientists now have verified that dogs do have empathy with those around them: not just humans but fellow dogs.

A study recently published in Royal Society Open Science provides evidence to suggest that dogs can mimic the emotional state of their owners as well as their canine friends, a process similar to empathy called emotional cognition. The research team recorded the behavior of animals at a dog park in Palermo, Italy and noticed that the animals copied the expressions as well as behaviors of other dogs at the park within as little as one second of meeting another animal.
