Leather and Lace

Can you imagine the converse of this happening? Can you imagine a liberal whose read Obama's Dreams of My Father, or any of Al Gore's books going into a conservative Christian church and shooting the place up.

Hard to imagine.

This isn't, though.

Words matter.

Knoxville, TN shooter targeted the "liberal movement" and "gays":

"A police spokesman said that the shooter expressed his 'hatred for the liberal movement,' according to a 4-page letter found by the police in the shooter's car."

Bill O'Reilly, Michael Savage, Sean Hannity on accused shooter's reading list : Church shooting : Knoxville News Sentinel:

"Adkisson told Still that 'he could not get to the leaders of the liberal movement that he would then target those that had voted them in to office.'

Adkisson told officers he left the house unlocked for them because 'he expected to be killed during the assault.'

Inside the house, officers found 'Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder' by radio talk show host Michael Savage, 'Let Freedom Ring' by talk show host Sean Hannity, and 'The O'Reilly Factor,' by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly."

Myth of the 'liberal media':

In study, evidence of liberal-bias bias - Los Angeles Times:

"The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, where researchers have tracked network news content for two decades, found that ABC, NBC and CBS were tougher on Obama than on Republican John McCain during the first six weeks of the general-election campaign.

You read it right: tougher on the Democrat."

Diamonds May Have Jumpstarted Life on Earth:

"One of the greatest mysteries in science is how life began. Now one group of researchers says diamonds may have been life's best friend."

Hilarity. For Jenn B. Some naughty word used so be careful at work:

Some straight friends of mine think I am nuts for feeling unsafe in this country as a gay man, for fearing many Christians for the same reason...
