    I stopped practicing and started actually playing, so I spend my time reading Dante and Aquinas’s Summa. I’m amazed at the number of Catholics who claim to be Tolkien fans and then when you ask them about Dante the standard answer is:

    “Wut?”

    I confess I couldn’t get through the books either but saw the movies. 

    But back to the main topic – of course orcversity training is absolutely necessary! Of course we have got to hire less men! Since we now graduate only over than 50% more women with college degrees than men which thankfully will have disastrous effects for the American family and our children, we need to tighten the screws further to punish men for the obvious crime of being born with too much testosterone. 

    Next time I have to drive through a crowd of protestors, which I had to do yesterday,  I will remember all this and self flagellate for my grievous sins.

    I’m a staunch Protestant and I read every page of LOTR. Do I get honorary RC status.

    Those are the ones who drink beer instead of wine right?

    There are some pinkie-lifters, sure. Mostly beer though.

    I hope Lileks makes this the Post of the Week, not so much for the original post, but for the comments! Cheers!
