Conrad Robert Murry = guilty on the count of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

Whether he caused Michael Jackson's death actively or through passive negligence, it is *my personal opinion* that he *did* provide substandard and inadequate care in a complex medical situation in an inappropriate setting using medications far better suited to be used in a critical care setting.

I am personally and professionally satisfied with this outcome.

Currently some evangelical Christian Republicans are saying "Don't vote for Mitt Romney because he's a Morman and Mormonism is a Cult! They aren't 'Real Christians!''

Okay - got a quick question of the Intrawebz Masses out there.

We already know [because networks like Fox, etc. are telling us at the top of their lungs] that Jews, Muslims, etc aren't Christians and shouldn't have any positions of power in the US Government because only 'Right and True Christians' should direct this 'One Country, Under God'. In fact that is such a 'Clear Truth' that they don't even need to bring it up except to drag up old and inaccurate comments about Obama being a 'Closet Muslim'. And if I hear one more 'Stanch Republican' quote that the First Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, Chief Justice John Jay [December 12, 1745 – May 17, 1829] said that 'only a staunch Christian should hold the reigns of government' [paraphrased because I can't find the bleeping quote right now] I shall surely scream!

Dude, the guy was part of the early US and considered himself a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church in America. I was brought up Protestant and believe me, they are some of the least Evangelical folks around.

But on to my major 'Thought For Today'.

What about Catholics? I notice the Talking Heads are steering way clear of that subject.

Here's an interesting list of affiliations of the population of the US: Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life / U.S. Religious Landscape Survey. Please note that Catholics make up roughly 23-25% of the religious affiliations in the US.

Here's a pdf with a more complete breakdown from the same site: PDF - Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life / U.S. Religious Landscape Survey

And of course, it's not a *real* survey unless you too Wiki in there somewhere.: Religion in the United States

And besides, I love graphics.:

The reason I ask is currently I'm living in an area that is pretty much split between main line Christian and Catholic and I can't help but think of the uproar if/when someone other then me makes the connection that they too may be part of the 'unloved'.

So... anybody in Canada/Australia/New Zealand got a spare room I can bunk in until I get my visa and transfer my residence properly? I figure since I'm a 'split color' off the pie chart [yellow-orange - Pagan with Buddhists leanings], I might as well start scoping things out now before all shit breaks loose after the elections next year.

And that goes 'way past sad. I gave this country coming up on 60 years of my belief and support - 20+ of that in the US Army. But I refuse to have a narrow minded, bigoted group of 'My Version of God is the ONLY God Thou Shalt Have!' take control of what's left of my life.

NOTE: As pointed out ladyqkat below, tmy area is also *very* heavy LDS/SDA [Latter Day Saint/Mormon & Seventh Day Adventist]. Not ab ig surprise since the N/W Nazarene University is just down the freeway. I didn't omit that particular group because they don't count in this area. But since the 'Republican Right' has already declared them to be 'cultists', I didn't enter them into my equation. Not an oversight and not a slight by any means.

SyFy cancels "Eureka" - no 6th season.

In some ways I'm sorry to see it go, but for me, Eureka "Eureka" 'jumped the shark' back at the beginning of Season 4 when the main cast did a 'time travel' shuffle. I've hung in there because I adore several of the characters and some of the interactions. But the plot lines have been a bit lame.

It was a fun, quirky show and I love quirky.

And it's just another victim of SyFy and they way they handle their shows.

Just finished watching "The Green Hornet" on the local Pay-For-View. My first thought was "I just paid $3.99 [plus tax and fees] for this...".

I may need to shell out for "Unstoppable" at 2130 to help wash the last couple of hours out of my brain.

On the upside though, I got a bunch of John Cho [for the WIN!] and a big chunk of crocheting done.

The *only* thing keeping me from totally losing it and throwing the TV out the window [the little portable in the office, not the big one - I'm not *that* over-the-top] is this: ABC renews 'Castle' for Season 4
seticat: (* cat - tv - orangedragoness)
Okay - I know that UST is the sort of thing that sells programs. And 'Castle' would probably jump the shark if those two ever figured out who they *really* want to be with.

But ... Day-yam! It's painful to watch those two dance around each other.

That is all...

Who spent a moment and wondered what it would be like if Walter Cronkite were the newsman covering the Chilean miners situation? I remember him covering the Kennedy assassination and the Apollo 13 situation. His reporting always made a lasting impression on me.

I can see him in my mind's eye, his voice steady, but his eyes sparkling with joy, when they brought the first miner up.

Just sayin...

I can *not* believe I've missed watching this! $h*! My Dad Says The Shat is perfect for this, the dialog is great and his delivery of it's perfect. The innuendos aren't all that subtle, but they come in from so far out in left field you need Google Earth to figure out where they started from.

Here's another interesting interview with The Shat.

You gotta love a man who has little hats he put on his turnips to make sure they stay warm during the winter.

"Lost". No matter how many tiems I tried, I just don't connect. I've never had the chance to see any of the early episodes of "Supernatural", but the couple of later season one's I've seen, I don't click with.

On 'Large Dangerous Rocket Ships', someone just launched a home made model of a Klingon D-7 battle cruiser. At least, I think it's a D-7. [In truth I speak Romulan tech a lot better than Klingon.] It did just fine, great launch, stable flight and deployed it's parachute making a nice landing.

Can't say the same for the R2-D2 model right after it.

Great launch. Fine trajectory. 'DQ d/t prang.' [Disqualified due to failue of recovery system to deploy]

R2D2 go splat.

Next up on the pad? Astro Kitty 'Nibbles'. [Relaxed, he's a plushie]

Am I the only one feeling like 'Eureka' jumped the shark tonight?

David Blaine. Middle of an Atlanta, GA sidewalk. Stops and talks to three young women and levitates about 3 or 4 inches off the ground.

I mean it. On camera. Feet right off the ground.

On 'The Travel Channel' - the program was 'David Blaine: Street Magic". This guy just wanders around and stops people anywhere and every ware and just does magically freaky things! It's incredible!

Evidently he has a couple of TV program specials: 'David Blaine: What Is Magic", "David Blaine: Magic Man" and "David Blaine: Street Magic". I can't recommend them enough.

Everyone needs a bit of the unexplainable in their lives from time to time.

Woo Hoo! Okay - this isn't too long to wait for a good viewing copy.

Doctor Who: Complete Specials (The Next Doctor / Planet of the Dead / The Waters of Mars / The End of Time Parts 1 and 2).

And "Farscape: The Complete Series" is back to being cheap [$64.00]. Along with the first season of "Castle"


But it's not going to happen because my income is now over 1/3 less than it was before but I now have more bills.

Okay, I don't really like performance reality shows or ones like "Survivor: Where-ever". They want a Survivor show, toss some of these Gen-Xers our on the street for a month and see who makes it. Life style shows like Deadliest Catch' or weird shows like 'Mythbusters', that's different. But tonight, I found The Sing Off, and I think I'm in love. I'll tell you up front I have a weak spot for a cappella and I was afraid that I'd be over critical, but...


Okay, not all of them so far, but the evening isn't over yet. But now I'm bummed that I missed the first night of this. I'll definitely be on the look out for the rest of it and go back on line and catch the first performances.
