Going through old emails...

and found I misssed letting you in on this:

Peter Singer is a Princeton professor who believes it is okay for parents to kill their kids until their offspring are 28 days old. He also believes in bestiality: dogs, he says, can convey to their master whether they consent to intercourse. Now he is pushing clam rights.

In today’s New York Times, Nicholas Kristof writes that because Singer is uncertain about the capacity of shellfish to suffer, he tends to avoid eating them. Which means that Singer apparently believes that newborn kids who are knifed to death don’t suffer, but clams on the half shell might. Whether clams can consent to sex, Singer does not say.

Here's one I hope doesn't happen...On SciFi Channel 3 I saw a never before shown episode of the old sci-fi series "Sliders". in which Al Franken becomes senator and helps destroy the alternate U.S that the sliders went to. OMG, I hope that doens't come true...I heard also thay plan on showing another episode where Alec Baldwin runs for a higher office too. Too scary to realize..."What if this was true????" AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!

What was a professor in? Not that it matters... But yeah he sounds great, no kidding. I'll bet he's just trying to be groundbreaking and countercultural or some shit.
