? Hide out from the 101+ heat index (and thus avoiding even thinking about Dune). Go over my lines for next month's play. Read link salad ;-)

re: JC & the "Repubs Plot Israel-Iran Apocalypse and the Collapse of the US Economy" Yes, I hearily concur. Naturally, this seems all of a piece with their economic plan for this year's election too - "remember our policies that nearly spun us into Depression? Let's try that again!".

Prepping for game tonight, running said game, probably chores tomorrow and maybe even getting enough time to put together ideas for my next campaign...

Some of the anti-mosque comments at that page are depressing.

Thought experiment: there have been plenty of murderous attacks by Christian extremists against abortion clinics, gay bars, etc. Suppose a Christian congregation wanted to build a church near the site of one of those attacks. I doubt there'd be much uproar, and if there was any discussion at all about it, I suspect the anti-mosque people would show their hypocrisy and indignantly say "Oh, but that's different..."
