I present this post, and publish the short article below for two notable reasons, and the ordering does not necessarily reflect importance. I shall leave the importance judgement up to the reader.

One, Fabio is somewhat of an amusing satirical figure, and this is a satirical site.

Two, this type of article is an example of the gossip/news/garbage that has been dominating the press in much of the English speaking, Western world the last several years. What does the Bible state about gossip?

According to the Nelson's Three-In-One Bible Reference. Here is a definition.

Gossip-idle talk or rumours about others.

Selected verses that I examined from the New American Standard Bible that were listed in the Nelson text.

Leviticus 19:16 warns against slandering others, and that one is not to act against the life of a neighbour.

Proverbs 20:19 explains that a person that slanders gives away secrets, and therefore one should not associate with a gossip.

Romans 1:29 lists gossips as among those with a depraved mind (1:28).

2 Corinthians 12:20 lists gossip as something that Paul does not want to find when he visits Corinth.

Nelson's Three-In-One Bible Reference, Nashville, Thomas Nelson Publishers.

My thoughts are that this type of journalism below will continue within the entertainment news sections, and will carry over at times into the main news presentation, as has been the case with Hilton, Spears and others. I am not against entertainment taking its place beside news, sports, and weather in the overall news presentation, but I would like to see gossip terminated and more time put towards presenting intellectual reviews and discussions of films, television series and so on.

Would Fabio beat Clooney with his hair?

George Clooney, Fabio Face-Off Over Face-Shots
by Staff

George Clooney and romance icon Fabio stunned diners at Hollywood's swanky Madeo restaurant on Friday (02Nov07), when they exchanged fighting words over a photo session.

Actor Fabio was dining with friends when one stood to take photos close to a table Clooney was sharing with his girlfriend Sarah Larson.

According to America's In Touch Weekly magazine, Clooney thought the photographer was trying to take shots of him and asked her to stop - a request which annoyed his fellow diner.

The magazine reports Fabio went over to Clooney's table to explain, but the conversation became heated, and the long-haired actor was overheard telling the Ocean's Eleven star, "I thought you were a nice guy. Stop being a diva!"

The encounter prompted angry Clooney to stand up and approach Fabio. An eyewitness tells In Touch, "The waiters broke it up before it got out of hand.

"George looked annoyed... George was drinking but he wasn't drunk."

Clooney reportedly skipped the rest of his meal, asked for his bill and left. Fabio's manager has refused to comment about the incident, but says, "George is lucky he didn't end up in the Er (emergency room)."

Fabio and Clooney weren't the only celebrities dining at the restaurant on the night of the scuffle - Dame Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci were also guests of Madeo. (c) WENN

A Farewell to Kings (1977). One of my favourite Rush songs, and it seemingly deals with aspects of the problem of evil from a secular perspective. There are some good thoughts in these lyrics, although there is no ultimate solution to the problem of evil without God's intervention. This is a rare track that features both complex classical (intro) and electric guitar soloing.


When they turn the pages of history
When these days have passed long ago
Will they read of us with sadness
For the seeds that we let grow
We turned our gaze
From the castles in the distance
Eyes cast down
On the path of least resistance

Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
Withered hearts
And cruel, tormented eyes
Scheming demons
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise

The hypocrites are slandering
The sacred halls of truth
Ancient nobles showering
Their bitterness on youth
Cant we find
The minds that made us strong
Cant we learn
To feel whats right and wrong

Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
Withered hearts
And cruel, tormented eyes
Scheming demons
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise
Cant we raise our eyes
And make a start
Cant we find the minds
To lead us closer to the heart
