Completed WordPress Upgrade to 2.2.1

This is my first time working with the real blog. If there are any problems, e-mail me.

Unfortunately, 2.2.1 is not just a bug fix release. Some security issues came to light during 2.2.1 development, making 2.2.1 a required upgrade. 2.2.1 addresses the following vulnerabilities:

* Remote shell injection in PHPMailer
* Remote SQL injection in XML-RPC Discovered by Alexander Concha.
* Unescaped attribute in default theme

Scimitar Has a Web Site


One of our policies here is that if one of our bloggers puts up a REAL website, as opposed to one that is forever “under construction,” I give it front-page coverage at least once.

A really good one gets more: If you look at the listing to the right, you will find “Introduction to Bob.” It is not Bob’s. It’s Dave’s national salvation site listed at the bottom of every article.

Scimitar’s is at

I reproduce comments mercilessly/nicely, depending on what you think of them.

If that bothered you, you wouldn’t BE in this kitchen.


I’m a racialist, not an “anti.” I keep track of these things at my website. Vermont never passed an anti-miscegenation law. The Wikipedia page on anti-miscegenation laws has been updated since I last checked it. Apparently, Vermont was not alone in this respect:

“Only Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Alaska, Hawaii, and the federal District of Columbia never enacted them.”

Of those, I am pretty sure Wisconsin, Minnesota, Hawaii, and Alaska also did not pass anti–miscegenation laws. According to the Jim Crow History website, Connecticut passed two anti-miscegenation laws in 1908 and 1933.

Note: For the record, Vermont is also one of the few states in the Union to allow same-sex civic unions.


Hell is Just a Low Quality of life

I remember when Jimmy Swaggart made a profound comment:

“You cannot die.”

Swaggart pointed out that you will live forever in Heaven or in Hell.

So Pro-Lifers’ battle is already won. Pro-Choice people talk about “the quality of life.” Pro-Lifers say that the quality of life is not important. Life itself is all that matters.

Hell provides eternal life. Hell can be conservatively be called a low standard of existence.with all that fire and thirst and agony and stuff, but it is LIFE. But it is LIFE.
Hell gives you Eternal Life.

Endless Life.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” If life is all that matters, Hell is just fine.
