Nir Rosen screws up, bigtime

You may have noticed that friend-of-the-blog Nir Rosen screwed up bigtime with his dumbass comments about Lara Logan.

Stupid, insensitive, inane, wrong-headed. Yup. My feeling in this situation is to hate the sin, not the sinner. I mean, a lot of my friends are dumbasses, and I've been there myself.

But a little voice in my head suggests that "sinner vs. sin" is the easy way out. So I ask you: What is the proper response? Should I ban Nir from the blog? I'm not promising to take your advice, but I'd like to know what you all think.

Navy ship's mast just snaps right off

You heard me right: The top of the mast of the USS Gravely snapped off. The break was at the point where the upper part of the mast was welded to the lower part. The ship is almost brand new. They must have built the ship on a Monday after a Saints home game.
