A Mugshot really captures those special moments you treasure so you can share them with friends, family, law enforcement and the world wide web. This weeks theme for Illustration Friday was suggested by one Ms. Michelle Gibson after all …
Time to settle down for a good old fasioned game of Pin the stache on the Donkey. For our sober, Mennonite and/or law abiding readers I should clarify that D.W.I stands for Driving While Intoxicated. Perhaps I should have just called it the Adolf.
Illustration Friday on a Monday … well as Moonya-ben always says better late than never … better never late.
Dear CBS Broadcasting:
In your Season 2 Episode 14 of Numb3rs you had the Doctor in the hospital identify the girl who died as Southeast Asian (Vietnam, Indochina etc.). You meant South Asian. You should watch that — its a common, but very silly error … and not one a doctor who was identifying a corpse by geographic region and somatic norm would make. Plus it annoys all your South Asian fans … which when you tote up mathletes, scientists, retired engineers and Navi Rawat fans is probably a sizeable demographic. And a loyal yet easily made grumpy one.
Keep up the good work … very much enjoy the show …and its positive message about science and the logic of the mind but you must factcheck your scripts more thoroughly. Thoroughness in work will lead to success.
As the great Tamilian Srinivas Ramanujan (Dr. Amita’s namesake no doubt) said “No number is never interesting”
Yours very truly,
Grumpy Old Indian Man
Illustration Friday – The theme: Angels and Devils
… I guess Im on a mythos roll … last weeks Harappa Hathi, the very avatar of a pre-national diety — is followed by a straight up, heaven and hell dual citizenship holder …
well I suppose any picture this pink, this shirtless and with a Mae West quote as a title isn’t so much ‘straight-up’ as really very much a gay. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Are you listening Kaavya?
Condi Loves India … And India maybe might just have to love her back …
Is it just always true that it takes a sister to sort things out.
It should be near impossible for the Secretary of State of this bull-headed administration to be going over big in Momma Desh … but after decades of incomprehension and outdated imperial divide and rule strategies … Condi's clear-eyed, positive spin is bringing the blush of new romance to US India relations.
And I quote Secretary Rice:
"Our agreement with India is unique because India is unique. India is a democracy, where citizens of many ethnicities and faiths cooperate in peace and freedom. India's civilian government functions transparently and accountably. It is fighting terrorism and extremism, and it has a 30-year record of responsible behavior on nonproliferation matters
There are more than 2 million people of Indian origin in the United States, many of whom are U.S. citizens. More Indians study in our universities than students from any other nation. Our civilian nuclear agreement is a critical contribution to the stronger, more enduring partnership that we are building
…. As the nations of Asia continue their dramatic rise in a rapidly changing region, a thriving, democratic India will be a pillar of Asia's progress, shaping its development for decades. This is a future that America wants to share with India, and there is not a moment to lose."
Clearly the growth of the Indian American Community has also helped changed the imaginative landscape between the two countries — but this kind of love fest is gonna get Condi Nation's Bahu status.
Makes a certain kind of sense … Sonia can be the stay at home Bahu … and Condi can be the American Born Condolesi Bahu … suitcase full of civilian nuclear Tang® on her trips home to Ma.
Condi Rice sporting Spring's hottest look — the pro-nuke peacock sari
Beltway cool meets proliferation posh for this new take on a classic This is a glamorous, excessive look, gorged on extravagant pattern and flamboyant trims. Twisted and draped fabrics fall to the waist creating sultry backless shapes. Platform heels, curved-wedge shoes and sandals of gold chain puncture block-coloured looks of mocca, tan, sage and mushroom. Throw in a chain strapped leather bag full of congressional approval to finish this very current look.
