"She- he is- he knows about women's rights and the importance of them, because he's raging- raising two teenage daughters." (11/15/01)

09/30/06: Fundamentalist history lesson #3
From God And Country: A Brief History of Evangelicals in America, comes the quote below.

"The call to proselytize remained as strong as ever, and by the 1940s when Billy Graham first took to the pulpit, fundamentalists were reemerging with new vigor. Graham soon became the public face of the community and all factions rallied around him- at least temporarily. A deep fault line reemerged in 1947, when theologian Carl F. Henry, who came to be closely associated with Graham, published The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism, in which he argued that fundamentalists needed to bring their faith to bear on contemporary culture.

The book was a bombshell dropped on the greater evangelical community... Henry's book drew an indelible line between the two traditions; now one was either a fundamentalist or an evangelical."

09/28/06: Fundamentalist history lesson #2
From God And Country: A Brief History of Evangelicals in America, comes the quote below.

"While they may no longer have been prevalent on a national level, fundamentalists continuted the all-important work of winning souls. All this time, evangelists were speaking to the faithful through Christian publications, radio, and television, enabling some of them to develop reputations far beyond their local areas and, in cases such as those of Robert Schuller and Oral Roberts, to attain considreable levels of fame even outside the Christian community. The fundamentalists eventually reemerged in the 1970s and 1980s..."

09/26/06: Fundamentalist history lesson #1
From God And Country: A Brief History of Evangelicals in America, comes the quote below. First, some background. The Scopes Monkey trial in 1925 led to a state court decision that allowed the fundamentalist christians the right to ban teaching of evolution in public schools. However, the fundamentalists lost public credibility (and the case on a later technicality) and faded out of public view for some decades.

"They may have been hiding in the shadows during their hiatus, but fundamentalists were anything but idle. During their absence from public life- what Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life director Luis Lugo calls 'the desert years'- fundamentalists were regrouping and setting up a robust world of their own. They built a dynamic alternate universe by constructing parallel institutions. There are now fundamentalist versions of just about every cultural and societal institution one can imagine, from colleges to publishing houses to grassroots political networks, a great many of which were started during that period."

09/13/06: Terror scares game free elections
From 'Politics, the Media and 9/11,' Eric Boehlert, The Nation 9/25/06
"Surveying the political landscape, veteran prognosticator Charlie Cook recently noted, "Unless something very dramatic happens" in the coming weeks, Democrats will reclaim control of the House of Representatives this November as part of an electoral "rout." It's that caveat about something "dramatic" that has Democrats worrying--not because they necessarily fear a terrorist attack on American soil but because they fear another signature terror scare from the Bush Administration.

They also need to worry about the role the media will play if that occurs. Because if one of the enduring legacies of 9/11 has been this Administration's politicization of terror threats inside the United States, the media's lapdog hyping of the threats--its tendency to act as a megaphone instead of a filter, even in the wake of the Administration's clear record of distortion--is another. Too often anxious for access and too nervous about allegations of liberal bias (and, to be fair, somewhat constrained by the fact that the Administration often controls key information and decides how to disseminate it), news organizations remain much more willing to cheerlead terror warnings than seriously question them or put them in proper political context."

09/11/06: Endless War Against Endless Enemies
From The Nation editorial 9/25/06:
"Rather than pursuing a limited military action in Afghanistan designed to strike a swift blow against the terrorist leadership responsible for the attacks and then joining in a sustained, worldwide policing action to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure, the Bush Administration has exploited the tragedy as a license for an endless war against endless enemies..."

"The fifth anniversary of 9/11 prompts grief and sadness, but also anger. This country has endured a terrible failure of leadership. In the long run, we must free ourselves from the idea that the "war on terror" is an organizing principle for our foreign policy. In the short term, we need to change course."

08/25/06: Mmm, donuts!
In a weird way it's like church and therapy and exercise all rolled up into one. I mean when I play hockey I don't think about anything, which is good for me because thinking hurts my head.
- Michael Vartan

08/23/06: Hockey builds character!
I wish I were a character actor. Of course, if I played hockey without a mask, I could become one.

08/21/06: Street hockey > New Kids
I hadn't been on the ice for 20-something years. I played a lot of street hockey. There was one pair of skates in my household. They were probably about a size twelve and I wasn't even 12 years old.
- Marky Mark Wahlberg

08/19/06: White Zombie and White Ice
I am like the Jack Nicholson of the Kings - every single game. If there was a game tonight I wouldn't be here. I used to play hockey. That was my original thing. My first thing, I wanted to play professional hockey.
- Rob Zombie

08/17/06: Hockey Stick > Crowbar!
They would often put hockey gear on me and have me play goalie for their street hockey games. It didn't bother me a bit! I actually loved it!
- Nancy Kerrigan

08/13/06: Hockey is 2nd only to... ???
"Hockey is a great sport because it combines the physicality of football, the team play of basketball, the poetry of ballet, the complexity of mathematics, and the aerobics of soccer. There is only one activity that is more physically, emotionally, and intellectually captivating than hockey, and it's not blogging."
- Guy Kawasaki

08/11/06: The Classic Hockey Quote
"I went to a fight the other night and a hockey game broke out."
Rodney Dangerfield
