The New Cordoba

Interesting. They want to call it "Cordoba House."
    The Fall of Cordoba in 1236 is a signal event in the Muslim consciousness. The Islamic blogger Jaraad titles his blog about the controversy "The Fall of Cordoba House." Given that the "House" has yet to be built, it's clear what "The Fall" refers to.
    The Caliphate of Cordoba, the greatest of Caliphates, fell with Cordoba. This event began the humiliation of Islam and its retreat back to nonentity in the Maghreb.
    Calling this mosque, in this place, "Cordoba" is powerful magic.

Dogs are Carnivores Too

An update on dog dinner. President's Choice Extra Meaty Dinner (not chunks) is now available by the case at three-quarters the price of single cans.
    As I've noted before, EMD has the most animal protein and fat and the least rabbit food in a can I've been able to find. 10% protein, 6% fat. That means I can feed an active 120 lb. bowser for $2 a day.
    And no "diseases of civilization" for her either.
