"CAPERS", AN "AT FIRST BLUSH" REVIEW;

September 28, 2011 – CLAUDEL VAN DEBUNNZ REVIEWS “CAPERS”.  When I was asked to perform the impossible, I found the challenge unbearably difficult to refuse.  All my life, as an afficionado of effete avocations and proponent of Italian “mini-Wastrelism”, I detested, nay, abhorred the very idea of visiting Detroit. Its appearance from the aircraft that delivered me…

THE ABDUL-HAKIM AMER BRIGADES OF SYRIA, CONQUERORS OF LILLIPUT; OUR NEW RESTAURANT AND BAR REVIEW SECTION;

September 27, 2011 SECOND POST TODAY – Aljazeera in English has posted an insightful article by Nir Rosen who travelled to Syria and met with some deserters who claim to have formed the Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed Army of Liberation, or some such Geschwatz.  He is misinformed but makes some astute observations.  I recommend the article. …

ALRASTAN, CENTER OF SYRIAN INTELLECTUALISM; BARACK OBAMA AND THE DR. FAUSTUS LEGEND;

September 27, 2011 – Well its garbage pick-up day here and so it is also in Al-Rastan where Syrian forces are also picking up the illiterate trash in the streets.  We know what’s going on in Al-Rastan and how jihadists are moving from that city to Homs in an effort to escape the inevitable net…

Setpember 26, 2011 – SECOND POST TODAY – The Turkish Navy has intercepted a Syrian-flagged frigate carrying what the Turks called “weapons”.  Mr. Erdoghan, eager to please his western principals and future EU partners, has trumpeted Turkey’s stance against Syria’s “failure to enact reforms as promised”.  Who is the hell is Erdoghan to extract promises…

U.S. DEFENDER OF FREE SPEECH REFUSES VISA TO MARONITE PATRIARCH; TANKS! TANKS! TANKS! ACCORDING TO THE BBC;

September 26, 2011 – Another Monday.  Back from our dacha up North. Prepared the blind for hunting deer this Fall.  I just heard that the U.S. government has refused a visa to Patriarch Al-Ra’i of the Maronite Church of Lebanon because he made “statements” concerning occupied lands while he was visiting France.  Oh Boy! The…

September 21, 2011 – SECOND POST TODAY – The details are in: Waddah Khanfar, (you are not going to believe his real name),  Jenin-born Palestinian rat-fink and golddigger has quit Al-Jazeera after a Wiki-Leaks scandal-bomb lowered him to the level of NYT reporter and Tony Blair International Liar’s Award nominee Anthony Shadid.  He apparently has…

September 21, 2011 – I watched the spectacle yesterday of Rick Perry deliberately abasing himself before the media.  When our politicians become abject clowns, motley-clad fools dancing a jig before a council of trailer park managers, our civilization is descending into decrepitude.  How could any human being who aspires to the highest office in the land…

September 20, 2011 – SECOND POST TODAY.  I just back from a Chinese restaurant and found a fax from Chuck, a friend and reader, who noted on the cover sheet that he was shaking from laughter as he sent the copy through.  Chuck and I go back a long way.  A few months ago we were discussing…
