More on Sen. Al Gore’s cleavage between mind and body, as fishing turns into a cruel and unusual national pastime:
On March 9, a San Francisco woman in her 30s was hung from 28 wire-suspended fishhooks, all pierced through the flesh of her back, legs, and buttocks. This was a women-only event. More than 80 spectators and friends were in attendance at the black-walled South of Market space, drumming, chanting, and coaxing her on.
Raelyn Gallina, an East Bay piercer who has a lot of female clients, organized the event and did much of the piercing. “It was women doing it for women,” she says. “It was a very powerful experience. There were women who needed to be there. This was a major, history-making thing. There were three videographers and two still photographers. Women would cheer every time a hook went in.” …
Gallina has her own thoughts on the popularity of body play. “Basically,” she says, “the world is meaningless. There’s just your body and you. That’s all you’ve got.”

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
