“I am not seeing it. To me it looks like a kneeling figure with two outstretched arms. So it's a dumb headline for the story. Lots of the theories in these comments sound both more plausible and more interesting than the original one.”

“I read that Tamerlan was disruptive in his apparently moderate mosque. That might have been a moment for the pastor (or whatever the equivalent term is in Islam - aren't imams more like cardinals?) to intervene with him, and possibly speak with teachers, family members? Seems to me if Islam wants to be an accepted religion in our diverse American landscape, we'll need to ask the leaders to police their own ranks. Same with hellfire and brimstone Christian sects that fan the flames of righteous disaffection.”

Richard Tinker on Apr 24, 2013 at 19:44:40

“His mosque in fact kicked him out, according to reports. Your point is well taken, as someone with similar beliefs and background might speak to him more effectively than, say, teachers and counselors at his American school. But disruptive behavior is so common. There's no way one might see some disruptive kid and think "he'll probably grow up and attempt acts of mass destruction and terror" - there are countless kids who might behave similarly but never go on to criminal violence, much less terrorism. It's easy to wash your hands of the situation and figure it'll take care of itself.”

“The screaming voice is clearly that of a young kid, one whose voice has not even changed completely. You can hear it flip into the higher registers a couple of times, which George Zimmerman's voice would not have done.”

julieintx on Mar 26, 2012 at 13:17:16

“The kid's father said it's not his son's voice. But I guess you know better.”

“This is a very sad situation. Even if Zimmerman get's away with this; he's not very long for this world. You just can't disrespect people and shoot them on a whim, just because you are a well-connected person.”

“The internal inconsistencies among those of us on the extreme right is truly breathtaking. Individual liberty curtailed when it comes to reproductive choice, but then invoked aginst an obvious disease-prevention measure. And then there's this: "I will tell you that I had a mother last night come up to me here in Tampa, Florida, after the debate," Bachmann said. "She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation thereafter."
Is there a new study out that details sudden-onset retardation???”

Vivian Schiller, NPR CEO, Resigns

“NPR is jeered at for political correctness, its attempt to avoid insulting names, derogatory stereotypes, anything that could be construed as “hate speech”. This effort not to offend is seen as pandering to certain groups, and is usually lumped with other liberal postures. The firing of Juan Williams for saying that Muslims on a plane make him nervous is the same thing as firing Ron Schiller for saying that tea-party activists are xenophobic racists. In the eyes of those who jeer at political correctness, it should be a perfect example of the muzzling of free speech.

But the debate seems to have lost sight of that. One would expect right-leaning critics to defend Schiller in the same way they defend Williams, but they are not. Instead, the content of the remarks has suddenly become the issue: Williams said something good, in their view, and Schiller said something bad. The GOP want to de-fund NPR, and this becomes fodder for them because Schiller attacked the tea party, and they find those comments offensive. Suddenly political correctness works to their advantage! NPR should argue that Williams and Schiller were wrong in expressing such opinions while acting as representatives of the organization, and for that reason ONLY. The reporter and the fund-raiser both showed bad judgment.

NPR needs to be more forceful in drawing the distinction between private opinion and public speech, otherwise it looks like these employees were censored for their politically incorrect views.”

Endora on Mar 9, 2011 at 15:37:25

“Except Mr. Schiller's comments were not made in a private or personal setting. He was officially representing NPR in a business luncheon with potential donors.”

“The "Nation of Hannah" has undergone a revolution. In the past 6 months, she's gotten sober, which has allowed her to grieve over the loss of her mother the year before. She has moved her capitol to a new state. And she has allied with another independent country in the Treaty of Marriage. She has experienced the economic downturn that has affected all countries, and her position is ever more firmly one of peace, justice and mutual support among nations.
Her treaty partner is urging her to return to the workforce. She maintains that she needs more time to sort out the consequences of her revolution - new goals need to be selected, new territory needs to be learned. The work of reconstruction is well underway, however. The Nation of Hannah has already formed new alliances, entered constructive dialogues, and is asking for guidance from other nations who are reinventing themselves. Thank you Nation of Judith, for your wise and funny analogy!”

“Well, congratulations Hannah!

The "Nation of Hannah" has undergone quite a transformation....... please consider this "Nation of Judith" among your newest fans and allies.

And might I say, in your search for new alliances with other nations of "re-inventioneers", you'd do well to pay a visit to these borders on a regular basis and get to know the community of nations who gather here. There are some mighty fine ambassadors here who are busily working to form alliances in support of the greater good. You'd fit right in!

Seriously, bows to you for the important work you've already done and are continuing to do. I'm so happy you chose to share your good news here!

“Ha! That's an interesting and unique take on the situation. As a woman who's been accused of being "too rational", it's intriguing to think of us reveling in this menu of emotions. In that scenario, I guess you could consider her expression as a kind of performance, and you can sit there and marvel at her enactment. And make appropriate neutral/accepting comments when given cues? (See Dr. Leahy's article about What Not to Say). I think I'll try that with my super-emotional husband. He's in a snit right now about opens at 5:30 tonight!”

PalaceOfWisdom on Jan 27, 2011 at 14:04:33

“There are certainly cues most women give. There's an irony in the fact that my genuine interest in their thoughts allows me to understand what they want from me, yet I also don't see how it will help. They prompt me to tell them they're pretty or notice they've changed their hair, but hearing that never seems to keep them happy for long. I'm always the "just a friend" who compensates for the kindness and understanding they don't get in their relationship. It seems to make them happier to constantly search for something they feel is missing.

I don't exhibit a single trait on the above list but am somehow always relegated to the role of sympathetic ear as they stay with that kind of guy. I'm predictably kind toward them, so being around me means they get an emotional menu with only one item on it. It took me a long time to realize that a woman can be bored by kindness, since as a man the idea would never naturally occur to me.

My three sisters have to get partial credit, because they're the ones who showed me that how women socially interact isn't always influenced by men. I'm much closer to my one younger sister than the others, and I think it's mostly because she has all the arguing and distress with the other two, leaving me as the sibling she can talk to when she wants a laugh.”
