Rule 5 Sunday: The Man Who Saved Britain

While Stacy is busy cataloging the many derangements and insanities of feminism through the years, it seems only appropriate to turn the spotlight this week on the literary icon feminists love to hate, James Bond.

Egyptian Stamp Honoring Suez Canal Depicts Panama Canal

A new Egyptian stamp meant to mark an effort by the government to build an expansion to the Suez Canal contains an embarrassing error: When the Egyptian government proudly announced plans to build a new Suez Canal last month, officials were so puffed up with pride that they took the time-honoured step of commissioning a series of stamps to mark the 2.4 billion project. But in an embarrassing start to the scheme, it appears that the stamps are not all they seem - the designers have managed to mix up their canals.

'T' Is For Thomas The Tank Engine Is Also Racist

The TV show "Thomas and Friends" is racist, wrote Tracy van Syke for the Guardian in July, because good engines puff white smoke and bad engines puff black smoke. She is so relieved her son doesn't have "a manic train fascination like so many other children," because although the show "seems to impart good moral lessons about hard work and friendship," it is in reality "concealing some pretty twisted, anachronistic messages" - it's racist, classist, sexist and anti-environmentalist.
