Oh by the way, folks,
Today we make fun of some extreme fringe Moozlamic freaky-fruits in Malaysia who wanna make it illegal for non-Muslims to refer to God as Allah.
From what I understand, Allah is simply the Arab word for God, a cognate form of the Hebrew word that's translated to God in the Old Testament.
The Malaysian language, from what I understand, has its own native word for God, but due to the high Muslim majority of the population, that word and several others have been largely replaced by the equivalent Arab words.
So what's new about language changing? Hey, it happens all the time! Deal with it!
Well anyhow, we got a few inches of snow on top of ice last night, and it's awful cold. The streets are pretty slippery and the snow plows and sand and salt trucks are making a valiant attempt to cope. I'll just stay home and watch the fun.
