Toast and Roast

The 116th Carnival of the Vanities is hosted this week at Vik Rubenfeld's The Big Picture. Vik is a fine blogger who does a great job with too many posts to mention, but the following stood out for me:

  • Josh Cohen has an excellent, passionate states' rights argument supporting plantiff's position in the famous Raich v. U.S. medical marijuana case argued by Randy Barnett.
  • Where else but in the blogosphere could you find such a delectable
    history of Key Lime Pie?
  • If you thought Americans were ignorant, read this.
  • Taken in Hand discusses a grotesque new perversion in which men dominate women!
  • Solomonia offers a must-read post on anti-Semitism at Columbia. Important history is being ignored at our peril!
  • Some very interesting Catholic perspective on gay marriage: contrary to popular opinion, we're all sinners, "God does not hate fags," and more.
  • Here's news that morality is instinctive. Hmmmmm..... What would the environmentalists say?
  • And that was just the Carnival.


    Meanwhile, at, the Bonfire of the Vanities continues to burn, baby burn!

    A few scorched tidbits:

  • Susie's alive, but not in the mood! (Susie, I'm always that way -- and it's probably how I managed to survive decades of wild orgy parties!)
  • Dr. Rusty Shackleford is running an ad along the lines of "blasphemer seeks fatwa for fun and games!" Some sick's sheikh's sixth sick sheep's mighty sick!
  • And Donna B. is now a grandma. Congratulations, Donna!
  • Be sure to go back and read them all.

    Susie, I refuse to answer on the grounds that it might tend to incriminate you.

    As to that Catholic perspective on SSM: I didn't like all Robert Hayes's premises or arguments, but I did like his conclusion: "Everybody gets cake." That's the solution that Rev. Donald Sensing arrived at quite a while ago: give everybody civil unions and leave marriage to the churches. A Christian libertarian.
