And I think I like this blog thing. I am a scholar, after all. To answer Carl, yes, young man, I do use the word “retard”, as in:
“If you have created the fifth generation of atomic bombs and are testing them already, who are you to question other people who just want nuclear power. I think the politicians who are after atomic bombs, politically, they’re backwards. Retarded.”
I have as much right to be here as YC (who is bound and gagged and in a cage, er, I mean being kept under security with the other three Jews who are currently, um, living, yes, living, that’s the word I was looking for, living in Iran. As I said in my speech, “We love all nations. We love the Jewish people. There are many Jews living in Iran, with peace and security.”), and I believe that I will stay here. I like it. It is a holy blog. And I will not be made to leave it just because of something that theoretically might have happened somewhere else to other people by other people.
Besides, YC should be doing better things with her time. In Iran, she can live out her time in the way that the holiest one intended. “Women in Iran enjoy the highest levels of freedom,” I said yesterday in my speech, without offering specifics. But I will now add that one of those freedoms is to marry at age nine, a freedom that you Americans do not bestow upon your women.
Now, who is this Britney Spears of which YC sometimes writes? And who is Lakmsi? Her name puts fear into my scholarly heart, although it is true that I love all people. Especially those living in my country with peace and security.
As YC would say, that is all.
