THE JEWISH CONTRIBUTION TO ‘ANTI-SEMITISM’: Pravda online just published a rather even-handed article with that daring title by Dr. Peter Baofu. I applaud their courage in doing so, and they do outshine the nominally American press in many areas, but I wish they would stop damaging their credibility with articles by anti-evolution cranks and junk science essays like “Birds can scan the future,” et cetera.
MORE WHITE CHILDREN: According to the Daily Telegraph, encouraging a higher birthrate in his country is Russian President Medvedev’s pet cause. Among other measures, Medvedev (pictured) instituted the “Order of Parental Glory” for Russian families who bring four or more children into the world and provide them with a healthy environment. Russian birthrates grew by 8 per cent. in 2007 and 6 per cent. last year.
Russia has the glory of being a country where the phrase “more children” is synonymous with “more White children.” Bravo to Medvedev for making the world a better place.
WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK: If you like music and, like me, want to avoid supporting the Evil Empire’s economy, you may enjoy the superb AVRO Klassiek from Holland. Also try 101.ru from Russia: a huge selection of genres at 128 kbps. Their ‘Cyber Space’, the sometimes wacky-lounge ‘Easy Listening’, and ‘Pop Classical’ have been entertaining. I’m not sure what ‘BG and Aquarium’ and ‘Cats and Dogs’ music might be, though!
