In which I discover myself to be a hypocrite...

I read the following on another site I frequent:

``Americans continue to be baffled by the fact that the rest of the globe practices good manners and polite language.``

My immediate reaction was, ``Hey; f#@% you, buddy...``, thereby proving the point, to a degree.

Remember the debate we were having about whether religion helps society, or if religion is the basis of morality, etc.? Here's the latest study, and I couldn't help but laugh when I read it. Enjoy!

Societies worse off 'when they have God on their side'

Here was my favorite quote:

“The United States is almost always the most dysfunctional of the developing democracies, sometimes spectacularly so.”

I am standing on a ladder reaching up into the branches of a tree, installing my work Silver Hands for the show What’s That in the Woods ? In a nearby car park, a young man stands by a car, shouting at the driver. He slams his coat down on the car bonnet as the driver gets out. They square up, throw several brief punches and stop fighting. After a few seconds, the driver returns to the car. The young man once again stands by the car, shouts at the driver and slams his coat on the car bonnet. Again, the driver gets out of the car, they both square up, throw several punches, then stop fighting.

Then, and only then, does a sound boom come into view, and a number of others, who are variously, a cameraman, a sound recordist, the director and a group of other actors, applaud.

Dead Friend
Submitted by Daniel Lehan on Fri, 07/15/2005 - 4:23am. Other
A young woman is talking on the mobile, she is calling, probably a woman, who she perhaps does not know. The woman’s phone number was listed on a mobile phone belonging to a mutual male friend. This friend has been beaten up, and perhaps left for dead in Epping Forest. It seems that he had taken a considerable sum of money from his bank account and had then gone missing.

A young woman runs to the front of the ticket queue, she is crying. She says that a man on the platform is threatening to throw people in front of trains. The member of staff calls to another, who checks the monitor screens. The woman runs out of the station, various people from the queue concerned about her, run after her.

Has anyone heard of In Passing?
I found this while trying to locate the web group for In Passing addicts regulars.
