A Three Month Old Baby Is Dead

A three month old baby was killed yesterday.

An innocent, angelic three month old baby girl whose only crime was being with her parents in the wrong place and the wrong time.

In Jerusalem yesterday, a member of Hamas rammed his car into a crowded train station. Eight people were injured. The only fatality was the infant.

The press jumped on the story in the usual fashion.

The headline from the Associated Press was as follows: “Israeli Police Shoot Man in East Jerusalem”.

The rest of the international news outlets, in their usual sheep like way, just followed along.

A three month old baby is dead. And as usual, the press points fingers at Israel as they always do.

Shame on them.

My  heart breaks for the family of this child.

A three month old baby is dead.

The next time the press reports that Israel has supposedly been the Goliath to the Palestinian’s David, remember that a three month old baby is dead. She died once yesterday. She will die a thousand times over every time the members of the press points fingers at Israel without doing their homework.

A three month old baby is dead and if I had any more tears to shed for her, I would.


Throwback Thursday – Galaxy Quest (1999)

In the early 1980’s, Galaxy Quest was one of the most popular shows on television. Nearly twenty years later, the cast is stuck reuniting at sci-fi conventions to pay the bills.

Believing the show to be fact and not fiction, an alien race in danger of extinction reaches out to the Captain Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen). Jason brings his skeptical crew, Gwen DeMarco (Sigourney Weaver) whose only job is to repeat what the computer has stated, Alexander Dane (Alan Rickman) a trained Shakespearean actor who plays the resident doctor/alien and Fred Kwan (Tony Shalhoub) the ship’s engineer onto the alien ship. With the help of uber fan Brandon (Justin Long), can the cast of Galaxy Quest help this alien race survive?

This movie is incredibly funny. What I love about this movie is that it makes fun of the entire science fiction genre and it’s fan base without malice.  The running joke of the movie is that the actors are unable to move on in their careers, constantly being typecast to a character they played decades ago.   It is one of those movies that will always make me laugh.

I recommend this movie.
