Cereal as a Snack...

Cereal as a snack is certainly not an original idea. Most children home from school in the afternoon discovered it long ago. Individual cereal bits have been turning up in "potpourri" type snack mixes for decades.
The other night while looking for a snack food I happened upon a product called "Quaker SnackMix, a lone bag of it some grocery customer had dropped on some other snack product's shelf space (the one that starts with a "G"). Since I hadn't seen this one before I purchased it.
At home I tried the new snack mix and found it unremarkable except for one thing. There were these wonderful tasting little rectangular cereal morsels appearing to be like a shredded wheat product but much denser in composition. Reading the ingredients of the snack I learned these were called "Quaker Oatmeal Squares". I resolved to purchase a box of that cereal if it existed.
This morning I found some in the cereal section of the Shop-n-save. It's expensive though ($ 5.00 for a 16 oz box).
Anyway, I'm happily sitting here chewing on this stuff as I write..

You've Got to be Kidding!

The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has clearly lost his mind. He has suggested that introducing Sharia Law into the British legal system would help with "social cohesion."
I can't begin to express my revulsion at this idea, especially with the case of the two Texas girls allegedly being murdered by their father in what "Sharia Law" calls an "honor killing" fresh in our minds.
Much of our legal system comes from an ancient British origin. Why would the modern day UK even consider adopting such a regressive system that would take away all the womens' rights that have been won over the centuries.
If Islamic immigrants can't abide by the laws in the countries they have chosen to live in they should go back to where they came from.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister who appoints the Archbishop of Canterbury should begin a process of looking for his replacement.
