Gah! There is an abundance of good/interesting/disturbing stuff going on right now. My one-person staff can't keep up. Or it could be that I'm too lazy to do so. So instead I offer links:

The Democrats' Plea to the Black Community
I'm not a huge Ann Coulter fan. Don't know why, I'm just not. But she careens the nail on the head in her latest column "40 excuses and a mule", which discusses among other things, the Democrats push for the black vote and their lack of much to offer to back up their claim as "messiah".

More on Eminem the Bush Hater
Brian Crouch has a good post up on the Eminem/Bush Hate controversy as well as a recap of Michael Medved's commentary.

(Update 10/29) Michele at a Small Victory also has some harsh words for the cult of Eminem.

Pulpit Pimpin' Backfires
Remember Allen Temple, the church where the pastor endorsed John Edwards and they handed out what I dubbed the "Kerry/Edwards 'Hope is on the Way' Memorial Church Pew Fans?" Well they got busted. The IRS is on the case. Nate Livingston at "Cincinnati Black Blog" has more info.

(Update 10/29) Michael King covers the recent move by the IRS to rexamine the NAACP's tax-exempt status. 'Cause we all know how nonpartisan they are, right? Right.

Freak Dancing a Constitutional Right?
Joanne Jacobs covers a story on students claiming they have a right to "bump and grind" at their high school homecoming. For the civilized, that's "freak dancing"; for the even more civilized, that's "really nasty dancing". To make it even more plain, think "dry sex on the dance floor". Oh you better believe I'll have more to say on this. Maybe next week.

'Sexy Chic'
Have I mentioned how much I love the Evangelical Outpost lately? Well I do. Joe *drops way too much science to be running that show all by his lonesome. If only I could graze the hem of his garment. See his post "Young Miss Pimp: Pop Music and Female Teen Promiscuity". Excellent stuff. I got something to say 'bout that too.

More on Bumpin' & Grindin'
Check out Hans Zeiger's take on "freak dancing" too.

So much good stuff, so little time...

*Dropping science: "to educate, to enlighten"

Ann says:

"Even today, talk to any white liberal about abortion and within 60 seconds he will raise the black "overpopulation" problem."

Uh, yeah.

dropping science: see "kick knowledge"

Hey Ambra,

Thanks for the compliment, you're way too kind. I think I'm going to have to change my tag line to: "EO: Dropping science since 2003" ; )

Keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to seeing your take on the subject.

Alex, thanks for the further clarification.

Freak dancing isn't new. I'm 37 and we used to do it back when I was in high school. Of course, kids in the 80s had enough sense to get wild out of the side of the elders but that's another story. I suspect that the dog (that's what we called it back then) is much older. In Bill Cosby's book on Marriage he describes doing something at a basement party that sounds a lot like what we call freaking today.

Aw man, you missed your chance!
