A new issue of NPQ!
The need to talk about a lack of improvement is readily evident. Ok...I'm listening.
The art of naming television characters.
Is it just me, or does "Princess Consort" just not have the presige of being Queen? It sounds more like the position of Princess Irulan pushed Chani into taking the title after...I told you I was a geek.
On being offended and living with it. Whether or not you like it, there's no rule against it that can live with the First Amendment. Although this was movement was earlier pushed by liberals moving 'offending' objects/ideas out of government-involved places, it is now propounded via conservative groups looking to purify/Disney-fy modern culture as much as possible. Interesting...but ultimately foolish (this goes to both of them).
BTW - How do people judge America? Many liberals like looking towards the Republican controlled Congress and claim that America is more conservative. Many conservatives like looking towards Hollywood/media or other supposed beacons of modern culture and noting the liberal slant. I wonder if foreign groups with the same biases would see the same. Looking at the jihadists' understanding of God-less America versus a German/French understanding of a near unilateralist religious control, I think so.
