    Those evangelical text books sure have batshit crazy idea in them.

    It makes me fear for the future of the US, and also make me wonder: are we on a descending path that will end with us being no better than the fundimentalist Middle East countries, ruled by theocracy and turning our backs on real science?

    If that happens, I suggest we all find a nice island to move to.

    That, or we all hitch a ride on Mars One.

    Just to pass on some additional props re the MLB piece, Jason Varitek has worked for years with groups that assist victims of domestic violence, like Jaden’s Ladder. One more reason I miss Varitek.

      Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Last big New England hurricane was directly caused by Pat Robertson, whose prayers deflected it away from North Carolina right into us. Way to go, douche! (PR, I mean, not you Scribe.)
