No one is going to believe this, but it's true. He looks innocent enough but the cat pictured above destroyed my draft of a long article. For two days I had been working on a report on the International Conference on Islamization, that took place in Paris on Saturday. It was full of links, videos, quotes, and is now almost impossible to reconstitute as it was.
Along with this rough draft went hundreds of other links, to articles of importance that I had hoped to eventually complete.
In the middle of the night I heard a buzz coming from the computer. He was walking on the keys - it was my fault because I had failed to cover the computer with a protective light-weight basket that I always use to deter him. He must have caused the rough draft to be "selected", then as he played around, he pressed the delete button, and everything went down the drain. I tried to "undo" it but could not.
This cat has hated the computer from the beginning because it robs him of the attention he feels he's entitled to.
A much shorter version of that article will appear soon. For now, thank you for the comments you have been sending. The song "Requiem for France" has generated a great deal of interest, both in comments and e-mails.
Here's another song - from Mahalia Jackson.
