I am so godless yes I am

I love Harpers Weekly:

"A Vermont teacher was in trouble for testing students with liberal vocabulary questions. "I wish Bush," read one question, "would be (coherent, eschewed) for once during a speech, but there are theories that his everyday diction charms the below-average mind, hence insuring him Republican votes." "

What cracks me up most about that is that the teacher used the wrong spelling for 'ensuring.'

But this is just scary..

"A 1,600-inmate faith-based prison opened in Crawfordville, Florida."

..whichever way I think about it. Are they sending all and sundry there for proselytisation, or are Christian criminals getting a choice of prisons? Either way there is something very wrong about this.

I did the religion quiz. Apparently I'm an atheist. *grin* Allyn, does your group allow atheists?

And, in today's 'What Would You Do?' - picture this: You're pretty sure your neighbour is selling bullies (heh, Dargaville-speak) out of his house. This isn't an issue, but the people who are going there to buy them are parking in your driveway and blocking it. It's only for 5 minutes at a time but because you live there, it's happening several times a week and it's getting annoying. How do you approach the situation?

Hey look! A post without mention of shearing!
