Sunset at Sounyo



The above picture is Sounyo at sunset [click the pic for larger], from the foot of the Temple of Poseidon. And yes, all of Greece was that beautiful. More pics are forthcoming, but they should be available soon.

Some days, I'm more Jewish than others, it seems. . .

So, apparently I'm now Jewish, and this is a bad thing?

(special thanks to sleepingwolf, who was astonished to stumble across this reference to me and my OL "editorship")

Somehow, someone on the "Vanguard News Network Forum" revealed me as part of the "Jewish problem". On one level it's disturbing to think that someone has my name and thinks I'm part of some imaginary problem or conspiracy, but this is balanced by a very heavy amusement at the fact that while I'm part of the problem, the guy is leaving it to everyone else to guess my "ethnic origin", because he obviously can't think of any other people in ADF who *might* be Jewish, but needs one more to prove his point.

I dropped the quote behind the cut, as well as the link, because I don't want to cause anyone's work to wonder why they're looking at white supremacy websites, but I quoted it in full, because damn: it's not every day that you get lumped in with a bunch of people who are actually pretty darn cool and even chosen by God. I mean, the guy practically blessed me (in a weird way) by insinuating that I'm Jewish.

For the record, I'm not the editor of Oak Leaves, either.

For the most part, this kind of stuff is weirdly frightening and amusing to me. It's frightening for all the obvious reasons, and the frightening aspects of it should not and cannot be understated. But the reason that I find it amusing is because, you know, people actually believe this stuff. That alone is just so improbable to me, so deeply and abysmally idiotic, that I cannot help but think, "Gee, it's like their whole life is one huge, insane joke that doesn't end!"

Either way, I'd rather be kinda Jewish than all stupid.

I think I'll have gefilte fish for dinner.
