NEWS OF THE EARTH #7: Earthling Edition!

Greeting to Mr. & Mrs. Earthling and all her blogs in cyberspace.

I'm Vox Poplar, Earthling Field Correspondent for the Moxargon Group and it's time for another edition of


Let's go to press!

DATELINE-WASHINGTON: Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) made some waves this week by speaking at a congress of American Atheists where he compared Bush to Hitler and 9/11/2001 to the Reichstag Fire. Goes to show that being America's first Muslim congressman and accepting support from an organization that funneled money to Hamas doesn't exempt you from the same hoary old Lefty wingnut talking points.

DATELINE-BERLIN: German broadcaster have announced the coming of an all new, 24/7, all DEATH channel. Yep, you read that right, a channel dedicated to nothing but death and dying. Why am I not surprised that it's going to debut in Germany?

DATELINE- LONDON: A British girl has lost a court appeal of her school's ban on wearing a purity ring from her Christian Church. The court decided that it was within the school's rights to ban anything representing someone freely choosing Judeo-Christian morality for fear it might offend people who who force morality on their young with the wearing of burqas, female genital mutilation, and honour killings.

But I'm not going to name any names, because it might offend the sort of people who would defend their honour by killing me.
