    Greetings, humbolt.

    I guess when you get to choose what to issue a Fatwa against, the phone used to access the Internet is as good as anything else. The evil in people learning via the Internet how other people live in the 21st Century is just too much to tolerate, and it just causes unrest! I'd bury my laptop if it would help, but it has these loud alarms that it uses to protect itself, and they're annoying enough to send neighbors to investigate! It just wouldn't do to have them wonder what's going on next door!

    We had a gorgeous day yesterday to celebrate Labor Day, so following the general outline for NE Ohio, it's pouring here today! We mustn't be allowed to get spoiled by expecting it to be warm and sunny nearly every day in the Summer, you see!

    3G phones are relatively innocuous compared to a laptop. My laptop has asked me for protection from a Fatwa, should one be issued. I have denied the request because, as we are learning, Iran is a moderate murderer and practitioner of Salafism - not like ISIS. Makes all the difference. A moderate beheading is far more preferable than the extremist kind.

    It's hotter than hell down here now. Summer has arrived in September.
