Woah there Tonto!

OK. So the last entry is a little contentious and that whole 'religion and politics' at dinner thing I am so often reminded of but pointedly ignore is once again floating in my meagre brain.

It's always a problem when I get wound up by something I think, I see an opinion that differs slightly from my own or I interpret a certain way and I launch at it with vigour. I can't apologise for my views on the matter but I can apologise for trying to force them on someone else, which is one of the things I argue against so i really should behave myself! So if anyone has misunderstood my meaning on anything I said I apologise, especially to Jo.

In conclusion :

Racism = Bad.
Violent and fatal protest against childish cartoons (or anything so banal for that matter) = Bad.
Passing off personal prejudice as journalism = Bad.
Satire = A literary work in which human vice or folly is attacked through irony, or wit.

Great breakdown and clarification, dear!

All is well, don't you worry your sweet little head!

(By the way, here in America, using "Tonto" is considered condescending to our Native American population because it stereotypes all Native Americans as similar to the Lone Ranger's sidekick.)

Sorry for all the comments! It's Friday and I'm trying to catch up on what I've missed!
