Bombing (2001)

(2001) Dry Bones cartoon: Iraq, U.S., Iraq, bombing, media
Today’s cartoon is from just ten years ago. Back then the Western powers were not bombing Libya. They were bombing Iraq. And yes, The Western Media did not get very upset about it.

The real war against Israel, back then as it is now, is waged by the biased Western media. And why we need organizations like my friends at CAMERA.

Did you miss this piece of news?

According to the Washington Post:

Diamond planet discovered by astronomers
“A diamond-crystal planet five times the size of Earth and with more mass than Jupiter has been discovered in our own Milky Way galaxy.

An international team of astronomers led by Swinburne University of Technology in Australia spotted the exotic planet racing around a tiny star 4,000 light years away and published their findings Thursday in the journal Science..”-more

According to CNET:

Astronomers: We’ve found a planet made of diamond “Perhaps the biggest frustration for astronomers is that they can’t get to the places that most interest them.

So please imagine the excitement–and vexation–of skygazers who believe they have discovered a planet that might just be the shiniest piece of bling out there.

Reuters paints a picture of astronomers who feel like someone who has just been offered 27 carats over their chocolate pudding.

For there seems to be a planet orbiting tightly around a small star just down the road (in celestial terms) from Earth that is “a massive diamond.” -more

And from the International Business Times:

The Milky Way’s Diamond Planet
“Professor Matthew Bailes of Melbourne, Australia’s Swinburne University of Technology and his team of international astronomers have discovered a planet made of diamond in our Milky Way galaxy.

An exotic planet that seems to be made of diamond racing around a tiny star in our galactic backyard

With a 64-meter radio telescope situated in Parkes, Australia, the team of scientists from Australia, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States, discovered the planet as it orbits a pulsar. A pulsar is described as a small spinning star that emits a beam of radio waves, which are then detected by Earth’s radio telescopes as radio pulses. The pulsar and the planet were located 4,000 light years away in the Serpens constellation, which is part of the Milky Way’s stars. The astronomers supported this discovery with further observations with the Lovell radio telescope in the United Kingdom and Keck telescopes in Hawaii.” -more

Subj: Marriage in Heaven

On their way to get married, a young couple was involved in a fatal car accident.

They found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.

While waiting they began to wonder; could they possibly get married in Heaven?

When St. Peter arrived they asked him if they could get married in Heaven. St. Peter said, “I don’t know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,” and he left.

The couple sat and waited for an answer…. For a couple of months.

While they waited, they discussed the pros and cons. If they were allowed to get married in Heaven, should they get married, what with the eternal aspect of it all? What if it doesn’t work? Will we be stuck in Heaven together forever?”

Another month passed and St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled. Yes, he informed the couple, “You can get married in Heaven.”

Great!” said the couple. “But we were just wondering; what if things don’t work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?”

St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard on the ground.

What’s wrong?” asked the frightened couple.

“OH, COME ON!!!” St. Peter shouted. “It took me 3 months to find a priest up here! Do you have ANY idea how long it’ll take to find a lawyer?”
