Local Heroine or Bossy SJW in Training

Milpitas girl calls out publisher over name of book series
KTVU -

Think ABDO Publishing wasn't all too happy to bend over for the radicals? Those who seek to make money through pushing products of mass culture will do whatever it takes to make money.

I Remember When She First Debuted



Kyrie eleison.

I'm crushed!

Wasn't it obvious?

When the LGBTQ Agenda Gets in the Way of Storytelling

And with a large dose of feminism, too. That is what I get from this review of The Imitation Game: Review: THE IMITATION GAME Cannot Live Up To Its Inherent Drama (even if the reviewer won't admit it because of SJW orthodoxy)

‘Imitation Game’ Screenwriter On How Alan Turing was ‘Whitewashed’

Not SJW Enough

Review: THE HOMESMAN Takes Tommy Lee Jones Out To Pasture

Tommy Lee Jones's character doesn't convert to feminism, nor is feminism somehow vindicated by the story. And Hilary Swank's character, despite being such a strong independent woman, is unable to find a man. A good or bad Western, then, for traditionalists?





I missed The Salvation; it apparently was released in the States in October?

Swiss Guard Recruits



Looks like the recruits (and enlisted?) wear short tunics while officers have a jacket. Who is the uniform designer for the Swiss Guard?

It Would Have Been a Significant Gesture

Who is in charge of the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Constantinople (Istanbul)?





It may be that even if the rector and the Latin bishop had decided to restore the high altar or to modify the sanctuary so that ad orientem liturgies would be celebrated at the free-standing altar, Pope Francis might have nonetheless celebrated it "versus populum." I think he could have done it here anyway, especially with Eastern Catholics and Orthodox present. Does he have any sense of a liturgical patrimony and praxis common to both East and West?

His homily.

Slavery Is More Likely to Increase

As economy and disorder worsens throughout the world and we continue into the postcarbon era.





NIMBYism

There is a rally scheduled for tonight at the Cupertino library/civic center for those protesting the proposed redevelopment of Vallco and its conversion to a mix-used zone (commercial and residential). Where were these people to protest against the Federal Government, drone attacks, its handling of ebola, etc.? Or to protest against the state government? Quite a few Chinese are involved, and I did see a white man helping distribute papers and talking up the cause. I don't know if he has been a resident all of his life, or if he is a new arrival like most of the Chinese. Residents should be concerned about the impact on traffic, though with nearby Apple HQ being built, how much worse could it get? And of course their precious schools are in danger of being overcrowded.

"If it makes things more difficult for my family and I, then I'll get politically involved."

Since $ is everything in this liberal society that they love so, then why shouldn't other people with money be able to have a say in how Cupertino is developed? And why shouldn't other people with money be able to move into Cupertino if they are able to afford it? Why should their interests have priority over the interests of others?
