Where Have You Gone MCAryeh

Your blog may be gone but I receive consistent traffic from the remains of Whispering Soul each day.

Lampooning A Blogger

In the grand old blogosphere there are certain posts that are written, rewritten and recycled ad infinitum. Perhaps the most common is the one in which a blogger discusses how nasty things can get. Now depending on who they are they may go after people for being mean or they may go after them for being weak.

This is not going to be one of those posts. All I am going to say is that I am continuing to receive fan mail and some bloggers have even chosen to devote entire posts to little old me. Now while I am flattered to receive all of this attention I am disappointed in them. It is not because they have upset or embarrassed me but because their attempt to lampoon me is so poorly done.

If someone is going to take the time to try and do it they might as well do a proper job. As the source of evil in the JBlogosphere I deserve better than to be lampooned by the simple son. Give me someone who has a command of the language, insight and wit. I suppose that they tried, but a half wit is useless in this battle.

Sigh.

Now my dear pussy cat, or should I just say pussy I’ll gladly wait to see what you come up with next. And just for fun let me add that you should expect to receive a surprise real soon. Be well Mr. Bigglesworth. 😉

The Gaza Cesspool Disaster

At least six people died and many more were missing after sewage and mud flooded a northern Gaza Strip village Tuesday morning, officials said.

The hospital in Beit Lahiya reported that an elderly woman, a 1-year-old baby, a 3-year-old child and a 15-year-old girl were among the casualties. Some 15 people were injured.

The Bedouin village, Umm Naser, was flooded when the earth wall of a large cesspool sewage pool collapsed. Palestinians reported that 70 percent of the houses were completely submerged in the sewage, and residents said more than 200 people were still missing in the village of 3,000.

Defense Minister Amir Peretz instructed the IDF to provide assistance to the Palestinians through the coordination mechanism in territories. Peretz ordered the army to prepare for a possibility of evacuating the injured to Israeli hospitals.

A senior army officer, however, told Ynet that the Palestinians had no asked for Israeli assistance in the evacuation of the injured or in the delivery of medications and medical equipment.

Ziad Abu Farieh, the village council head, described the scene of the incident as “our own tsunami.”

Guess who was blamed for this.

Muhammad Dahlan, member of the Palestinian legislative Council, said that the Bedouin village should be declared a disaster area.

“The causes of this incident are the Israeli occupation, the security situation and the disregard and the indifference of the responsible bodies.”

Sorry Charlie, Israel pulled out of Gaza. You have had Gaza to yourself for a year. The blame lies at the feet of the PA.

This is A Reason To Commit Murder

Another one of those WTF stories:

A MAN who tied up and strangled a mother of two after visiting her home to make a bondage video has told a court the victim was trying to force him to commit an armed robbery.

Gareth John Bunce has pleaded guilty to murdering Margaret Wagner, 27, at her home near Warrimoo in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, in March 1997.

Giving evidence during sentencing submissions in the NSW Supreme Court, Bunce said he had murdered Miss Wagner after going to her home in order to make a bondage video.

He told the court he became angry when Miss Wagner produced two guns and asked him to hold up a service station.

“If I had an atom bomb I would have blown it up then and there,” he said.

Bunce told the court the two then went into a bedroom where he tied Ms Wagner up with ropes before strangling her.
