I have never seen a bench play so well. This team has turned around the game in the 4th with 1 starter and 4 bench players.

Tony Allen, Nate Robinson, Wallace and Big Baby are just playing incredible.

We may win this game/series we may not, but it won’t be the fault of this bench and if we do win these guys deserve the credit.

LA seems to have no solution to this defense.

Update: I wrote the above midway through the 4th. Magic Johnson said pretty much the same thing in the post game on Sportscenter.

Yeah I know Kristoff’s tounge is firmly in cheek…

but what is it about the NYT that makes op-ed writers there write paeans to things like Monarchy and Dictatorship?

Maybe they have the same water supply asCNN.

Hope it wears off.

…it is because of stories like this:

A fifth of nurses interviewed by researchers admitted that they had been involved in the euthanasia of a patient based on the “assumption” they would want to die. Nearly half of the nurses – 120 of 248 – admitted they had taken part in “terminations without request or consent”.

Euthanasia has been legal in Belgium since 2002. It accounts for two per cent of all deaths annually. The law states that patient consent must be given and that doctors must carry out the procedure. But the study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal shows that the rules are routinely flouted and shows how doctors often delegate the administering of fatal drugs to nurses.

You know that old Hippocratic oath had something to it. If you work under the assumption that the job is to preserve life and always err on the side of life you don’t get this type of thing, but once the attitude changes and the idea of cost take precedence the equation changes.

This is the result of a post Christian Europe and it is on its way here. It will not take one year or even 5, but by the time many of those who supported this health care plan become old enough to need this care, they may find that they ended up voting for their own end. In fact you have candidates openly stating this type of stuff today.

…and pretend that nothing is wrong thinks like this happen:

But Medina, whose real name is Andrea Fuentealba Valbak, didn’t get to sing more than a few notes before a hail of eggs began to rain down upon the stage. The perpetrators, reports tabloid B.T., were a gang of between 10 and 20 youngsters between the ages of 14 and 17 all ‘with an immigrant background’.

Their reason for attacking the songstress? Apart from taking exception to Medina’s hot pants and sexually suggestive song lyrics, it appears that the gang were provoked by the singer’s stage name which is also coincidentally the name of the second holiest city in Islam and the burial place of the Prophet Mohammed.

With the backing of most of the 3,000 strong audience, Medina ripped into the trouble-makers and told them that their behaviour was disrupting the concert for everyone else. But the strain took its toll, and the pop star ended up leaving the stage in tears.

They are referred to as “youths”, but in the end the Danes who choose not to rock the boat when stuff like this started to happen now better get used to stuff like this, because if something doesn’t change fast Denmark will be just one of many countries living under Islamic law.

And when that happens BTW we won’t have to worry about an Islamic Iran with a bomb, we will have to worry about an Islamic France and England with the bomb.
