Friends and enemies, and how to tell the difference

May 3, 2011

Consider this a bookend to yesterday’s post about Hamas eulogizing bin Laden and thus declaring itself an enemy of the United States.  Here’s what a friend, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, had to say:

This is an historic day for the United States of America and for all the countries engaged in the battle against terrorism.  I want to congratulate President Obama and the American people.  I want to congratulate America’s soldiers, and its intelligence personnel for a truly outstanding achievement.  It took ten years to track Osama bin Laden down.  It took ten years to bring a measure of justice to his victims.

But the battle against terrorism is long and relentless and resolute.  This is a day of victory – a victory for justice, for freedom and for our common civilization.

And here’s the video:

Friends and enemies. It’s not hard to tell them apart at all.

Nanny says, “No lunches from home!”

May 3, 2011

There were several good competitors for Reason.tv’s “Nanny of the Month” award, but the judges had no choice but to give it to a woman who embodies the spirit of “minding everyone else’s business:” Elsa Carmona, a school principal in Chicago who has forbidden students from bringing lunch from home:

I’d be real curious to know what, if any, connections she has to the company that supplies the school’s lunches.

Or maybe she was just jealous that she never had a Pokemon lunch box.
