Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Revenge for Rachel Corrie?

It should be obvious that this web site is a pathetic attempt on the part of leftist loons to get back at us neo-cons for all the insulting remarks made about Rachel Corrie. There are some significant differences:

  • The “dumbest soldiers” knew they were doing something dangerous; Rachel Corrie thought that being Western would make her immune.
  • The “dumbest soldiers” were doing something in the real world; Rachel Corrie was merely threatening something that would elicit an emotional reaction.
  • The allies of the “dumbest soldiers” are asked to mourn; the opponents of Rachel were asked to mourn.
  • Treating Rachel Corrie with disdain will discourage future human shields; treating the “dumbest soldiers” with disdain will have no effect.

Besides, if someone who thought of herself as a liberal became an activist for the right of local idiots to keep the “wrong” people out of their neighborhood, there's clearly some kind of intellectual defficiency going on.
