Appetites – Soup

What flavour soup is this?

No cheating James!

I make a lot of soup. Quick and simple to make, it saves time if you want a snack or something to warm you up on a cold winter’s day. Freezes well, so that it is always available when you want it. It’s the original fast food.

You can make soup from almost anything though mine tend to be vegetable soups rather then great big meaty broths. That’s because I enjoy a nice hunk of cheddar cheese and a crispy roll with mine. Or a slice of pate and some toasted granary bread.

The crims and the innocent

Valerie Strauss writes of an innocent:

“They” are officials at the University of Georgia, who took exception to a mocking e-mail sent by a student complaining about the location of available parking for scooters on campus.

As reported by FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, the school actually invites students to send positive and negative feedback to Parking Services, so student Jacob Lovell sent an e-mail Aug. 17 that said the following (note that I took out some language not allowed on the Post Web site):

“Why isn’t there any scooter parking near Aderhold, according to your parking map? There’s like a billion places to park on north campus and over by the Georgia center, but nothing anywhere close to Aderhold. What the hell? Did you guys just throw darts at a map to decide where to put scooter corrals? Can I expect you guys to … put in a corral near there some point before I … graduate and/or the sun runs out of hydrogen?”

Thanks for nothing, ever, J

This was deemed threatening to school officials.

Rise of the Right

UPDATE: The witch-hunt has begun. A group has already been formed calling for the expulsion of the SD from parliament. Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty. Furthermore, I suppose this post is a chief-demonstrator as to why I do not engage in Facebook but merely observe: If I did engage I would not have any friends left.
