Crispy skate and so much more!
According to epicurious.com, "Skate is a firm, white, sweet fish. Quite common on the East Coast, it's now more readily available in the West."

CRISPY SKATE WITH CAULIFLOWER, BACON, CAPERS, AND CROUTONS

Sixty years later
For the first time ever, Greece officially honored the Holocaust. It wasn't until 2002 that a law was proposed in the Greek parliament to mark January 27 as an official day to honor Greek Jews who were exterminated during WWII. In Salonica, where the Jewish community was practically wiped out, a memorial service was held downtown, at the same spot where thousand of Jews were subjected to "callisthenics" before deportation. The name of that particular location is Freedom Square and ten years ago the name was supposed to be changed to Jewish Heroes and Martyrs Square. It hasn't happened yet.

The Catholic Church's plan for Western birthrates
In this fascinating article by Jennifer Roback Morse, she recounts her surprising (to some?) discovery that the Catholic church has a much better grip of the precipitous fertility drop in the West than politicians do.
I thought to myself, it isn’t every day that I have a Cardinal to take my part in a debate. And not only that, but the churchman was taking a much more realistic position than the politicians. While much of the secular world assumes religious people are pie-in-the-sky-dreamy-eyed, here it was the politicians who were whistling past the graveyard, dodging reality at all costs. The Cardinal was taking the long-term view, facing the problem on its own terms, which includes both economics and attitudes.

The economic incentives need to change, that’s for sure. But we also need to recover a sense of the importance of love to the family. No amount of money from strangers can take the place of the exuberance of a couple in love, facing the world together, building a family. The state can get out of the way, and stop doing harm. Then the rest of us will have to do our part to build up the culture of life and love.
Read it all.

Chinese villagers discover that force is the only language the ChiComs understand
Petition the authorities? It's a time-honored Chinese tradition, but one that modern Communists have turned into a farce-inadvertently revealing to their discontented subjects that the same violence they face by their rulers is the only way to catch their attention. Then again, no one ever accused Communist regimes of leading to harmonious, cohesive societies. For all the Chinese Communists' blather about "harmonious development" and "social harmony", harmony is the last adjective you'd use to characterize the Chinese social contract. No wonder there were nearly 100,000 riots and violent protests in China in 2005, a number which increases dramatically every year.

Yes, We Have the Right to Caricature God
Newspapers Republish Muhammad Caricatures
The front page of the daily France Soir carried the headline "Yes, We Have the Right to Caricature God" along with a cartoon of Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim and Christian gods floating on a cloud. Inside, the paper reran the drawings.

"The appearance of the 12 drawings in the Danish press provoked emotions in the Muslim world because the representation of Allah and his prophet is forbidden. But because no religious dogma can impose itself on a democratic and secular society, France Soir is publishing the incriminating caricatures," the paper said.
I love freedom.

Update: The managing editor of France Soir has been fired. I guess religious dogma can impose itself on a democratic and secular society after all.

A thimbleful of cognac to Smit for the update.

Your weekly Guantanamo propaganda here
Did you know that at Camp Iguana we beat 10-year-old children so they'll learn better English?* If you didn't already know that, you'll soon be informed by an Amnesty International report coming to a newspaper near you: Claims About Guantanamo: "They Tear Up The Koran"
It's the same scenes we know from Iraq or Afghanistan. Dogs are laid on the bodies of naked prisoners, an unimaginable humiliation for devout Muslims. At night they are exposed to bright light or deafening music. The guards herd the prisoners into a hangar where the temperature is below freezing and straight after that put them into a room as hot as a sauna. Beatings are mainly aimed at the genitals and all this is filmed with video cameras. The favourite toy of the guards is the Koran, they throw copies of it into toilets or tear them up.
No complaints about offensive cartoons yet, probably in the next report.

*Finally, a small token of appreciation to all the abused and overworked ESL teachers of the world.

The Wages of Appeasement is Bupkis
They held out for a long time, but Jyllands-Posten finally succumbed to the Islamist firestorm of hyperviolent hypersensitivity and apologized. Their reward? You give an inch, and they demand a mile.
The Danish cartoon affair II. Translation of a dispatch in Swedish: "In an interview for SVT:s Rapport, the leaders of the militant Palestinian group the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades says that they are not accepting Jyllands-Posten's apology for offending Muslims with the publication of cartoons of Mohammed.In order to terminate the protests they are demanding an apology from the Danish government and also that the publishers of the cartoons are put on trial.They also say that they have nothing against Sweden and that the threats against Swedish citizens were based on a misunderstanding."
I suppose if these demands are met, the next demands will be for the death penalty by stoning for the cartoonists. My Sharia Amour continues to charm.
