Since we’ve been in New York, we’ve noticed that as soon as we say that we are from LA – people suddenly talk slower to us. Use smaller words. In some instances – like in the case of the elderly – talk louder.

It’s not Paris Hilton that makes us all look like half-witted morons – it’s our ‘public intellectual’ Jonah.
His column today is titled “The Church of Green.”
At its core, environmentalism is a kind of nature worship. It’s a holistic ideology, shot through with religious sentiment.
The irony here is that his premise is recycled from the renewable resource of Ann Coulter and her book Godless: The Church of Liberalism that was released on the apropos date of 06/06/06.
