Well kiddos, I am going backpacking tomorrow morning in Big Basin. Very excited. I will be back sunday with a summary and an important translation of a beautiful Hebrew song that is by a popular band. It is such a great song. I will share it with you guys. Give you some perspective about the mentality in Israel right now.

See you in a few days.

I came across another good blog today. I am just going to paste the part that I really thought made a good point.
"Israeli Troops Kill 2 Hamas Militants and Defuse Big Bomb"

The blogger responds to this article with the following:

"The story makes it sound like one of those
"assassinations" or something, that the "militants"
were just walking down the street, playing with
puppies and handing out candy to children, when
the IDF savagely killed them. What happened was
that the "militants" opened fire with antitank
rockets on Israeli troops, who of course returned
Oh, and another bomb attack was stopped. Not that that matters;
it's only the successful mass murders that the Israelis are
supposed to be upset about, and even then they aren't
supposed to endanger the road map to terror."

A Savage update

I need to confess something here. For the last 2 months or so I haven't really had much time to listen to Michael Savage. I usually don't get off from work until he is already done for the afternoon. Plus, I opt for music on my ride home. I have no idea what he's been up to but apparently he's been causing a fuss. My mom told me he was no longer on 560 KSFO and was no broadcasting on 610. Supposedly he goes back to 560 soon. I have had the opportunity to read some things about him this weekend and I see he is offending a lot of people. I just wish I understood why people actually cared enough about what he says to take it personally.

Here's my take on it: There is a talk show host I can't stand. His name is Bernie Ward. He is a super radical liberal to the extreme. Listening to him for more than 5 minutes makes me ill so I just turn it off. By not listening and by not posting ficticious letters that he supposedly has sent to me (as I found other people have done for Savage) I am hoping that he will fade out. Even by writing his name here I am giving him publicity (even though no one really reads my blog). My point is, if I have a real serious problem with what he says, I would rather send him letters rather than make up shit about him and post it here. I think that is just (excuse the language) fucked up. Savage has the right to make a living without all this slander. I think the same goes for Ward. I would be equally annoyed if I saw people making up stuff that he said or wrote just because they despised him. Sure, the things that people are writing are funny. I got a good laugh out of what they wrote about Savage, but you could tell that in the context of what they wrote, they were trying to make it sound serious which is what makes it wrong in my opinion.

Anyway, like I have said before and will say again, I admit that Savage is harsh. He has clear cut opinions that he is willing to back up with all the facts and history. At least that's what I remember him doing. I would assume he still behaves the same but who knows, he may have gone crazy. I will try to make an effort to listen to him this week.

Aside from that, I took the following from my friend's AIM profile. It will probably only make sense to those who go to a University of California (UC) school:
Q: How many UCSC students does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Eleven: One to change the light bulb and ten to share the experience.

Q: How many UCD students does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None: Davis doesn't use electricity.

Q: How many UCSB students does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Only one, but he gets six credits for it.

Q: How many UCB students does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Seventy-six: One to change the light bulb, fifty to protest the light bulb's right not to change, and twenty-five to hold a counter-protest.

Q: How many UCR students does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None: Riverside looks better in the dark.

Q: How many UCLA students does it take to change a light bulb?
A: One: She holds the bulb and the world revolves around her.
Alright, I need to go work out now.
