Truth runs wild and reality is acknowledged (usually).

Many believe Americans are a prudish lot. Not free and open with our bodies and sexualities like our European cousins (save the stalwart Brits -- though they do have page 3 in the news). However, our media is full of images meant to stir loins. From Coors Beer 'I love twins!' commercials to spaghetti strapped tank tops hugging female bodies aged 9 to 79, sex is everywhere in America.

Nudity has singular status; ask Janet Jackson. It changes the rating of a movie, the placement of a magazine at 7-11 stores , and ugrades jpegs from 'Wow, she's hot" to "God I love the Internet"

The Dixie Chicks, who are under attack from the most evil horde known to man -- The American Consumer, are losing a career they spent years building. To survive they are following the same 'SEX SELLS' strategy as anti-war, reality ignorant peace activists who have been chanting the same worn slogans for decades. Both offered a message that main stream Americans did not want and both dropped their drawers to get back in the debate.

1) How frickin' air brushed are the DCs on the cover of Entertainment Weekly? I always remembered the little one in the middle being chubby (for a famous rock chick).
2) In regard to the liberal hippy chicks? Aren't they typically against the exploitation of women and their bodies? Well, over 75 groups have 'stripped for peace' in and around the war in Iraq. Oh, its some kind of empowerment thing? So a women chooses when to exploit her body? Well, what about Hookers and Strippers?

They say three make a trend. In regards to Christian Rock, my three are: Tony Soprano's sister Janice announcing she was entering the biz last season, the commercials I keep seeing for Christian Rock on MSNBC or CNN (I watch so much I can't remember which is which), and the Today Show's creation of Kristy Starling - christian rock's newest sensation.

Today's actions confirm what few Eastern Elites want to admit. Nascar watching, church attending, Jesus loving Americans are a huge and powerful market that appears to be growing.

Nicholas Kristof admitted this a few months ago and admonished his own peers to stop dismissing 'creationism believing' Americans as fools and irrelevant because they are neither of the two.

This trend of christian rock and what it represents is obvious, what is not so obvious is whether or not liberal elites along the northeast corridor and on the campuses of major universities will open their minds to these people and their world views.

Apparently, an Iranian actress who kissed a director during an awards show was sentenced to 74 lashes.

What would have happened to the Jewish Actor Adrian Brody (who won an academy award for his work in a movie by an indicted rapist and sodomizer)if he had kissed African-American Halle Barry in Tehran rather than the Academy Awards?

I Try to be Culturally Sensitive, But What Is This?

In their pilgrimage to the Muslim Shrine in Karbala, Shiite Muslims slash their own heads open and let the blood flow. (Maybe this is why Saddam never let them go - he didn't want anyone else to have fun slashing people and watching them bleed)

First -- is there no HIV or other blood born viruses in Iraq?

Second -- Are people who do this really ever going to be our friends? And do we even want friend's like this? Forget about democracy.

I am trying to find something similar in America/West European history and all I can come up with is the WWF, oh, I am sorry, its now called WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment)

NOT A RACE WAR; Just Some Free Advice For My African American Friends

I noticed something in the Wall Street Journal the other day about the race to sell things to Hispanics. The article talked about the release of the movie Chasing Papi.

In scanning the article I was reminded of the most recent US census; it went on and on about Hispanics being more numerous than AA and growing at a faster rate - through birth and immigration.

The sad truth is that by expanding, Hispanics are pushing African Americans to the side as the minority to court. I can't be sure, but I think the Republican party made this strategic decision years ago. The Bush Texas/Fla strategy fits this assumption.

I don't know what this all might mean down the road, but I want my nubian friends out there to know what the demographic gods have in store for them. And don't be thinkin' Godfather/Machiavelli - like and accuse me of launching a race war.

Apparently wherever there is a sick and twisted dictator there is also fantasy art.

Here is one from North Korea and another from Iraq.

Fantasy artists are upset with the Bush policy of killing these regimes as they are the biggest buyers in the market.

Most artists are now looking to pimply-faced 12 year old boys and computer nerds (who haven't been able to make much money since the collapse of the Nasdaq) in order to sell their art.

Check back next week for the first public viewing of a half snake/half Mullah Omar beast bedding down with a fair haired maiden chained to the posts of a bed made of human skulls.

There is no doubt in my mind that Scott Peterson's new look is modeled on Ben Affleck. It makes sense as it has worked well for one of Hollywood's leading luminaries.

I don't know how 12 members of a jury are going to respond to Affleck-lite, but you can bet his ass he will get along real well in San Quentin.
