Check Facts Before Pulling Out Flamethrower

"It is the unfortunate destiny of the ridiculous to be subject to ridicule."
James Howard Kunstler

From the Cabalmaster:

We've heard that one of our favorite critics is firing up his flamethrower over an earlier post, in which we hinted that Los Angeles is named for the Virgin Mary.

Our "friend," whom we've dubbed the "Nattering Nebish of Napalm," might want to consider the following: it's true. L.A. was founded as "El Pueblo de Nuestra Se├▒ora de los Angeles de la Porci├║ncula." In other words, "The town of Our Lady, Queen of Angels . . ." The Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles explains this at www.la-archdiocese.org/Framein/lahisten.htm.)
