An alternative plan to Koran burning on 9/11…

Many of you may have heard about the pastor in central Florida (Florida, of course!) who is calling on folks to mark the nine-year anniversary of the September 11,, 2001 terror attacks by burning copies of the Koran.

Yes, because book burning has such a rich, storied history of success in our country, does it not?

The head of the controversial church says he is not deterred by protests, death threats or warnings by the top U.S. commander that his plan may put the lives of US military forces at risk.

And why should he be?  After all, he’s getting his fifteen minutes of fame, isn’t he?

But I have a better idea.

Instead, buy this book, written by a high school buddy of mine:

Apropos title, isn’t it?

He won’t care if you burn it, and it won’t put the lives of our military at risk – though Jihad may go after him personally.  But he won’t care – he needs the cash.  And a ranking on Amazon higher than #6,989,111 will help  his ego.

And about Red Fred, the poor tense fish, Bob reports that Red Fred, “…had to be committed to the Sunnydale Home for Tense Fish a few years back…His behavior had become too aberrant, and I had found that he was operating a small crystal meth lab under the rocks…He will be missed by all…”

Indeed he will.

Military Freebies Make Me Happy

Our men and women in the military sacrifice so much for us.  That’s why it makes me so happy to hear about freebies companies make available to them.

Anheuser-Busch is doing just that. Throughout 2009, active duty military and as many as three dependents may enter SeaWorld, Busch Gardens or Sesame Place free of charge with a single-day complimentary admission. The offer is valid through 12/31. Military must register for the Here’s to the Heroes program to participate.

Bravo.

Deal of the Day November 16, 2008


From Golden Corral’s website:

The 2008 Military Appreciation Monday dinner will be held on Monday, November 17, 2008 from 5 pm to 9 pm in all Golden Corral Restaurants.

The free dinner is available to any person who has ever served in the United States Military. If you are a veteran, retired, currently serving, in the National Guard or Reserves, you are invited to participate in Golden Corral’s Military Appreciation Monday dinner.

Hmmm.  Would have been kinda nice to do this on Veteran’s Day, even if it was a Tuesday.  But any day, any way we can honor our veterans – and their families – is perfectly fine with me!

Check back tomorrow for another great deal!
