Little Einsteins
Remember when kindergarten was all about snacks, nap time, storytelling, singing, dancing, and eating paste? Well, that was in the age of the dinosaurs. Now kids are getting tutors to prepare them for preschool and kindergarten, partly because overachieving parents treat their children as miniature adults and partly because kindergartens have "expectations" from incoming five-year-olds.
Educators and parents alike say there is greater pressure to begin preparing kids at an earlier age to meet the academic standards demanded by the federal No Child Left Behind education act and state testing. Many states have adopted benchmarks for every grade level, including pre-kindergarten.

As a result, pre-academic preparation — including homework — is being shifted to children as young as 3 and 4, while academic skills once expected of first-graders are now being taught to 5-year-olds. A knowledge of phonemic sounds, words, shapes, names of animals and parts of the body are de rigueur these days for incoming kindergarteners, who also are expected to know how to write their names and be able to count to at least 30.

More evidence of a changing landscape: A school superintendent in Prince Georges County, Md., sparked heated debate two years ago when he declared naps for preschoolers a waste of time that could be better spent on academics. Many traditional half-day kindergartens are converting to full-day programs. Many parents are holding boys behind a year before kindergarten to give them time to mature and better compete. And a new satellite television network is offering around-the-clock viewing for infants and toddlers.

"There's a competitiveness that's scaring parents into feeling like they not good parents unless they enroll their children in tutoring programs," said Bruce Fuller, a UC Berkeley professor who has studied early childhood learning. "Commercial interests are stirring this sort of fear."

Anthrax attacks: is it a cold case?
FBI Is Casting A Wider Net in Anthrax Attacks. What wider net they can cast five years later, I have no idea. Is there any hope still of catching the perpetrator? According to this story, the FBI has conducted over 9,000 interviews and has issued 6,000 subpoenas in "one of the most exhaustive and expensive investigations in the bureau's history" but the investigators describe their suspect list as "fluid".
Five years after the anthrax attacks that killed five people, the FBI is now convinced that the lethal powder sent to the Senate was far less sophisticated than originally believed, widening the pool of possible suspects in a frustratingly slow investigation.

The finding, which resulted from countless scientific tests at numerous laboratories, appears to undermine the widely held belief that the attack was carried out by a government scientist or someone with access to a U.S. biodefense lab.
...
As a result, after a very public focus on government scientists as the likely source of the attacks, the FBI is today casting a far wider net, as investigators face the daunting prospect of an almost endless list of possible suspects in scores of countries around the globe.

Mansur versus Borat
Kazakhstan has spent $40million to make "Nomad", a film about the struggle of Kazakh tribes to expel Mongol invaders. It's the most expensive film made in Kazakhstan, an effort to improve the country's reputation apparently damaged by Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat Sagdiyev schtick.
Borat’s racist and sexist diatribes as he travels across America in a quest to marry Pamela Anderson, the Baywatch star, have left officials in Kazakhstan fretting that the comedian is turning their country into a global laughing stock.

The anti-Semitic reporter presents his homeland as a place where fermented horse urine is the national drink, women must ride on the outside of buses and homosexuals no longer have to wear blue hats.

Conversation with God
Did you come across them 3 books “Conversation with God”? I did years ago and after half of the first book, I left it there for severe lack of Jesus.
I mean I agreed with everything else, that idea of God explained itself and I admitted it was how I actually figure it all out, but that, just that I couldn’t get around to, so, I dropped it.

What I got out of the books is the title though, I always thought, “Yes, conversation with God sounds good for any piece.”
So here is mine because the day I die, Lord, I’ll have questions too. Get the answers ready, All Will Be Revealed.

(I mean, let’s so not really, really rush into this, I don’t need the answers for another good 40 odd years, so no hurry, just take a note sort of thing, eh.) 

For starters what was this forgiveness thing?
You know I forgive but am seldom forgiven. Actually, punishment is usually swift and incisive when it comes to this particular Prodigal Son. There have been times I got away with murder but so many other times Lord, I think you’ve been a little heavy handed, you know?
I could bring You a few examples of people I thought didn’t deserve the happiness that they had because of what they did.
I hear You say “Envy”.
No it’s not and You know me. It’s that, in my mind, I just don’t get what I perceive as just, even a portion of the times I deem appropriate. (On the long run, it hurts) So, I prefer to call it Justice my Lord. You know, just to say.

And Faith…
Now that was a great idea eh? “God’s ways are mysterious”… Are You British, Lord? Mysterious is the understatement of the year. The common thing about people with True Faith is poverty, bad luck, tons of shortfalls in life and usually an unhappy ending and I know that You say that is Noble but… pain is so not, Lord. I just wonder what have I done in the before-life to get a life like this. Yes, I accept my life is jolly good comparing to approx 4 billion other lives and in perspective I am well placed but I am not talking just about me that’s it. There’s a lot of poor disgraziati out there too.
You know there’s no chance of me losing my faith but you do test it anyway, eh.

And while we’re at it, when are you going to send Jesus back?
If there ever was a time, this is it. Another few years and we’re all going to nuke this planet, ciao ciao paradiso terrestre. Billions starve, millions swim in obscene riches, millions kill each other for the flimsiest reasons. A lot of them; in your name as well.
Looking back, I don’t think there ever was a time where The Messiah was needed back more than now (or pretty soon).

But anyway, I thought I was going to give you a rant, you know; one of mine but I just can’t gear in Lord. The more I try, the more arguments die in my mind before I can develop them into constructed thoughts.
It’s like the part that knows best in me is saying, quit while you’re ahead.
So I will. Just let me add, for my friends here, the way I’ll probably turn up when my time comes (like I said, above, it’s just conversational, no hurry whatsoever)

SP Saint Peter
M me
AG Arcangelo Gabriele

SP “What are you doing here”
M ”Come see God”
SP “You don’t see God here, this is Paradise.”
M “I know but I thought I’d pop around and say hi while I was around, wanted to ask you if you could, you know, do me a favour…”
SP “Go away”
M “Eh, dai, don’t be like that. I mean, there’s a friend of mine, he’s probably just behind me, tell me what you want from earth, you know….”
SP “Are you trying to bribe me?”
M “Far from me, perish the thought! I just thought I’d come say hi, how are you an’all that. You know, networking, I’m new”
SP “You wish. You’re waited at the gate of Purgatory where your Judgement will be held”
M “You don’t do them in Paradise anymore?”
SP “We never did, nice try. Go to that cloud, second row, third down, angels try their new wings there, get a lift. And if I were you I’d hurry. He hasn’t been on the best of moods in the last couple of hundred years.”
M “Second row, third down, angels…..hey! hey! Gabriel! Gab! Oh! Here mate! Gabrieleeeeeeeee!”
AG (Arcangelo Gabriele) “Oh, look who’s here, I heard you were coming up”
M “You heard I was coming up?”
AG “Ye, you’re quite popular with the grey angels”
M “The grey angels?”
AG “You know, angels not whiter than white…..you’ll learn. Lissen, I can take you to the gate of Purgatory no probs but two things.”
M “Tell me”
AG “Well, first, I can’t just drop you in front of the gate; I need to leave you behind a cloud.”
M “Why?”
AG “Don’t worry….is just that He hasn’t been in a particular good mood with me since the Arabian thing”
M “Ah, I get it. Ok. What’s the second thing?”
AG “Did I hear you say that your friend’s coming up soon?”
M “Yes, he should be. I mean, I am not wishing him bad but it was there really….”
AG “Ok, any chance of a spliff?”
M “You joking?? You mean a joint?”
AG “Ye, you know, a draw, a spliff, a bit of green”
M “Wow. Gabriel…it’s true what they say about you then eh!” Warrior angel an’all that….”
AG “Have some respect, I have done this for a few thousand years you know? I’m still sort of blending in the role, getting to grips with the job-description. Messenger Arc-angel is not as easy as barista or accountant you know”

Gate of Purgatory.
Huge sign on top of gate “You and Me now” is not looking promising.
Sky-high, ultra huge gate opens, more sky behind it, I enter, pitch black, I leave my body, thousands of images whizzes all around.
Gradually they slow down and I start making up what they are. They are images of me and my sins together with images of me and my good deeds. I am suspended and body-less while these images rotates around me.
Sins I even forgot.
Good deeds I did without realising.
But I am not feeling what I felt when I did what I did. I am feeling what the people affected felt, when I did what I did, when I did it.

This surely would be Divine Justice.

(Please don’t go lit candles now, I am still well alive, I’ve just got a lot of fantasy ok?)
