    What I didn't exaggerate was his affinity for Hebrew. They (ESPN I think or maybe the NFL Network ... I can't recall) reran the dossier/piece/biography they compiled on him I believe last night again. Reggie was shown discussing the background to the quest to learn Hebrew and could be heard actually trying to pronounce what I presume to have been Hebrew. As to the applicability of learning Kione Greek, the interviewer didn't pursue any theological strands (at least as was apparent by what was broadcast) with Reggie or how multi-lingual he was. Just the fact he was trying to understand one text in its original language was impressive enough for me.

He'll beat you silly. I wonder if those Islamic Fundamentalist revellers in 9-11 are still amused?
    Pretty tasteless post, adarian, even for you.

    As always, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We have the Iraqi War, the Drug War, and the Terrorism War. We have the Terrorism War even though we went to bat for the Muslims in Bosnia. We didn't start the war with 9-11, but we sure has helll are going to finish it. Game's still on.

    As an Old-School, Pro-Israel, Hawk from way back, who broke bread for an entire Summer with Jewish Nationalists living and working on a Kibbutz, you hardly need to convince me of the merit of the current war on the terrorist factions of the Islamic Fundamentalist World.


    That said, referencing the Tsunami victims (many of whom were impoverished children), to make that point was just plain tasteless.

    And, despite some of his poorly worded speeches, I'm certain Reggie White would have agreed with me on that one.

    Indeed it is.

    Although still in the eye of the beholder, it could be tasteless to suggest that all those who have been critical of the U.S.'s involvement around the world, can now see how well they will do without American's financial, logistical, and technical support. It could be tasteless to say that I want my impoverished child to become a suicide bomber too. But then I suppose it is a matter of taste.

    But I do have the taste for it.
