"There is always a certain meanness in the argument of conservatism,
joined with a certain superiority of its fact."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson, lecture, December 9, 1841
Um, D², is there a link missing?
I'll add a link for those who don't pick up the reference to the movie.
Thanks! I googled Al Gore (not The Day the Earth Stood Still) and came up empty...I guess I don't watch enough movies.
D², now I feel a little sheepish after checking the link.Years ago, I was in a Grapevine community theater production of "The Foreigner", portraying a charlatan Southern preacher fronting for the Klan (kinda ties in with your other blog today).Anyway, the 'foreigner' catches on to the plans afoot, and keeps his cover by feigning that he doesn't speak or understand English (of course, as an Englishman, he does). Much hilarity ensues as he spouts supposed gibberish, among which is "Klaatu barada nikto". So, I guess I should've recognized the reference.
Finally, I got out and watched a movie, so as not to be totally cinematically challenged.Unfortunately, Beverly Hills Chihuahua probably won't help me too much with references - but my 7 year old daughter enjoyed it.
The fact that I have managed to avoid the Chihuahua movie is further evidence that our universe is under the sovereign control of a merciful God.Good kid-friendly movies that are out right now include "Bolt" and "Despereaux".
Actually, the Chihuahua movie wasn't so bad as I'd have expected. I generally don't care much for Disney fare, but this one was OK in my book.My daughter began reading Despereaux Saturday (she hasn't seen the movie yet), and even though she hasn't been at it constantly, is now on Chapter 35. (OK, you can call me a proud dad.)
