I started this blog because I left Boston to live and work in London for a while, and I wanted to stay in touch with family and friends. I'm back now, but still have plenty of opinions on world news, politics, the media and the absolute craziness that comes from dealing with people. Bring it.

Holocaust Conference -- WTF?

OK, perhaps I'm crazy, but it is unbelievable to me that in the year 2006, we are seeing news stories about a conference to examine the "scientific and historical facts of the holocaust."

That's right, the crazy loon in charge of Iran, who I would wager is even more of an embarassment to the majority of Iranian people than W is to many of us in the US, announced plans to hold a conference to discuss what he calls the myth of the Holocaust. And his friends in the Muslim Brotherhood, and imams running mosques in Queens, NY agree with him.

This is where it gets scary, people. Its been easy to dismiss him up until now. I mean, he's clearly crazy. But read the news reports. And listen to the deafening silence. He's upping the ante and no one is doing much to stop him. Except maybe the empty threats of maybe not letting Iran play in the World Cup.

I can imagine the "scholars" President Crazy will invite to participate in this event. Hey, maybe the Palestinian Authority's own Mahmoud Abbas can come present his PhD thesis on the subject. And he'd be the moderate one. He only thinks the numbers are exaggerated... The other speakers will likely say its all a lie.

This shit is scary, and I can only hope that the the US is reporting a bit more outrage about this, because in the UK, all I'm getting is some factual reports of the fact that this conference is going to take place. SCARY.

I MapQuested the Holocaust convention. It's being held next to the Intelligent Design forum and the Futurama Forever Rally. It was originally supposed to be the Golden Girls Gala but it was canceled because there was an air quality concern of having so much BenGay concentrated in one area.

Liora, I just put your "Matlock for President" button in the mail so you can proudly let everyone know, "yes, damn it, I am an American...where's the nearest McDonald's?"

Don't worry, Tim, I'm not going all European on you. That's obvious, since people give me nasty looks whenever I open my mouth and an American accent comes out! :)
