While human familiars focus on the evil that men do, Baby Cakes focusses on the noodle that Tuck dangles before him.
"Hey, let's go," emails sub rosa blogpal Miss Kelly, who, with Sol of Solomonia, lit a fire of late under the local media to go after some shady terrorist supporters in our midst here in the Greater Boston area. The Jewish Advocate explains:
Two Bostonians [that would be Miss Kelly and Sol] expanded the debate on immigration rights to the Web last week as they created an online petition in support of the recent arrests of local Muslim leaders. Imams Hafiz Muhammed Masood of the Islamic Center of New England in Sharon and Hafiz Abdul Hannan of the Islamic Society of Greater Lowell in Chelmsford, along with Masood’s 24-year-old son, Hassan, were released on bail from the Plymouth County House of Correction last Tuesday. The Pakistan natives were among 33 individuals taken into custody around the country as part of an ongoing investigation into a visa fraud scheme.
"The petition simply supports the ICE [Customs Enforcement] officials for doing their job and enforcing the law," notes Miss Kelly. "Naturally, we are accused of fostering Islamophobia."
This morning the Chelsea Grays were out on their tethers in the side yard before dawn. When we went out at one point to check on things, Tiny appeared to be eating something. As we drew close, we realized she had dispatched a tiny mouse and was about to wolf it down, tail first. It's nature's way, of course, but given our delicate sensibilities, we wrested the poor victim from the jaws and laid it to rest in the garbage container under the sink. Both Tiny and Baby rewarded us with Miss Moppet "where did the mouse go" looks.
Now the heroic Miss Kelly beckons us to leave our cozy nest and go forth tomorrow evening to bear witness at something called ". . . and Justice for All: New immigration laws and civil rights in America," brought to you by the Muslim American Society - Boston Chapter, who appear to have learned one thing big time about this great nation of ours: We are a litigious society. Would that they had learned a little more about the shining city upon a hill and a lot less about the suit-happy lawyer community down in the ditch. So it goes. Here's what we emailed Miss Kelly:
Oh, I couldn't. I'm the stay-at-home type. I will be with you in spirit . . . Is Sol going with you, I hope?
And her reply:
Maybe, but the men and women are separated, men upstairs and women and kids downstairs. So I want another chiquita to go with me.
Wait a sec. Shouldn't the women and children be upstairs? What goes on here?
"Yes, at many mosques the women look down from a balcony, but not in Chelmsford," writes Miss K:
I went there once before. It's actually very annoying downstairs, because the kids are running around, very loud, you can barely hear the speaker.
You just can't go anywhere these days.
