Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

Friday, April 25



They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
This is why.

On Comporting Oneself In The Arena Of Public Discourse

Matoko of Ghost Blog called Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit a "theocon shill" for linking to Captain Ed's (formerly of Captain's Quarters, now blogging at Hot Air) favourable review of Expelled without linking to any of the unfavourable reviews she'd emailed him.

The problem with this is that it's (a) rude and (b) inaccurate.  Mostly (b); as I said earlier, if you're going to be rude it helps to be right.

But here's the thing: In the film, Ben Stein blames the Holocaust on Charles Darwin.

That's beyond rude, beyond being idiotic bigoted ahistorical claptrap.  It's essentially a blood libel against science.

You can see how a scientist might be a little irked.
