July 14, 1099

On this date, Christian European knights of the First Crusade began the final push to capture Jerusalem. They celebrated by massacring the city's Jews and Muslims...and a few Eastern Christians for variety.

I'm so glad we worked out that whole Christianity-Judaism-Islam thing since then.

I don't wonder.

On the bright side, two out of three of us have risen from the stone age and become civilized.

Just no-one knows which two.

I believe you may have missed Jennifer's sarcasm.

Wolf: Are you sure it's 2 out of 3??? It really seems like 1 out of 3 lately...
