Avicenna on the Law of Non-contradiction

 "Anyone who denies the law of non-contradiction should be beaten and burned until he admits that to be beaten is not the same as not to be beaten, and to be burned is not the same as not to be burned."

~~~ Avicenna, medieval philosopher

For the record, I enthusiastically accept the Law of Non-contradiction. Absolutely. Without question. No denial here.

Tony Snow, 1955-2008

Former White House press secretary, journalist, columnist, political commentator, and all-around good guy Tony Snow lost his battle with cancer early this morning. My condolences to his wife, children and friends. There are many people in this world that I'm glad I don't know. There are very few people that I wish I had known. Tony Snow, in my book, you're one of the few.

Full Betancourt Interview

Former FARC hostage, Ingrid Betancourt, is interviewed by NBC's Ann Curry. I found the interview quite interesting. In the full interview, Betancourt discusses how her faith sustained her and how God answered her prayer. Needless to say, not much of that part of the interview made it "on air".

A Feline Funny

My close personal friend, Muzzy, has posted a video cartoon that only cat owners can truly appreciate. If you don't laugh out loud, you will at least chuckle (pun intended, for those in the know).
