(WaPo) ...ADAMS's imam, MohamedMagid, explained that the ban stems from early Islam, when Prophet Muhammad preached monotheism in a culture steeped in the worship of idols.
To discourage such idolatry, he ordered Muslims not to draw, and religious leaders have interpreted this to mean that the prophet was banning images of himself and those close to him so they would never become objects of worship for Muslims, Magid said.
"We don't want to attribute divinity to the prophet," he said. 9:50 PM

For Their Rock Is Not As Our Rock...Deuteronomy 32:31
Via Popbitch some excellent Christianist popular scholarship concerning the ways and means of early death among rock stars. I lost a little respect for their accuracy when I noticed they went with the initial reports of Ricky Wilson's death in 1985 and list him as a dead from cancer not from AIDS (the truth would serve their point more strikingly so its especially surprising to see them fall down on the particulars here), but for the most part the chart is admirably extensive and well done. I feel constrained to note that Jesus Christ was publicly executed at the age of thirty-three for crimes against the state, a rock star death if there ever was one.

What's the opposite of a euphemism*? Whatever it is I just coined one:
*Dysphemism says answers.com. That was my guess too. We need more dyspheming in 2006, let us harshen up the language together. Do your part, bitches.

Since this is the sort of thing the news media would peg other (lesser, it is presumed) biosemiotic morphological entities with but never one of their own, let me be the first (I hope) to adumbrate the curse of the ABC News anchors:
Frank Reynolds Max Robinson Harry Reasoner (and aren't we all) Howard K. Smith Peter Jennings Bob Woodruff
Compare ABC's tombstone-strewn newsroom with CBS's roll call of the sitting, reading, paper-shuffling immortals:
God Walter Cronkite Dan Rather
Now it's true there are several flaws with my suggestion of a curse (the most of which is Bob Woodruff's apparent survival), but you start getting trifling and specific with your bean accounting of imperfections in occult-vengeance insinuations and you've just sucked half the fun out of sublunar existence.
