The Vagaries of Telephony

No phoneA major line of severe thunderstorms passed over Central Virginia last night. In its fury it managed to take out the phone company’s DSL service, disabling our internet access for almost twenty-four hours.

For that reason no comments were approved until late this afternoon, nor was there any news feed last night. Yesterday’s news stories will simply be included in an extra-large news feed tonight.

Dymphna and I are now in the process of catching up with our email. Patience is advised.

If you think that it is relevant, maybe you could mention that there are now some translated works by the renowned Swedish journalist who writes under the pseudonym of Julia Caesar at the Danish website Snaphanen.

One long article is:

Sweden – A raped country

“1975 was the year in which a unanimous Parliament decided that Sweden should be transformed into a multicultural society. One result is an increase in reported rapes since 1975 with an incredible 673 percent”

“Some young men that were interviewed by the daily DN in response to a gang rape in Rissne outside of Stockholm put it like this:

“It’s not as wrong to rape a Swedish girl as it is to rape an Arab girl, says Hamid. The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably been fu***d already. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her it is a great shame to be raped. It is important that she retains her virginity when she marries. “
