Dreaming A New New Orleans, Version 1. I hope some of these people are consulted before Halliburton is awarded the contract to rebuild the place.
Although that is probably what will happen. They will be consulted. Then Halliburton will rebuild, completely ignoring anything they have to say.
[Edited] A self-identified white
guy blogger comments on the looting and the shooting and raises some very salient points - as a gamer I have to agree with him them.
Seriously, stipulate that you have guns and ammo at home, but you're worried supplies will run low, and you know from personal experience watching TV this whole fucking week that you are totally on your own. Are you telling me you'd wait there like a putz? 'Oh the government will come soon.' With your children? You wouldn't go down to crowbar the front off the CVS? You're lying. All these 'shoot-to-kill' warbloggers can kiss my ass. They would be the first ones out there, if they had the guts to go outside. More likely they'd die with cheeto dust on their hands in the basement, having just won convincingly at Risk.
Come the rapture and I claim Place Alexis Nihon - Pharmaprix, IGA, Canadian Tire, Sports Experts and Radio Shack all-in-one. A lot of entrances though. Any better suggestions?

I have no problem with teaching Creationism/ID in public schools. Provided that it is taught in the context of religious studies ( Comparative Themes In Creation Myths would be an interesting class, for example) or in terms of historical thought/philosophy.

If complex organisms demand an explanation, so does a complex designer. And it's no solution to raise the theologian's plea that God (or the Intelligent Designer) is simply immune to the normal demands of scientific explanation. To do so would be to shoot yourself in the foot. You cannot have it both ways. Either ID belongs in the science classroom, in which case it must submit to the discipline required of a scientific hypothesis. Or it does not, in which case get it out of the science classroom and send it back into the church, where it belongs.
