Republican’t

Tild~ has a nice retort and badge for the Republicans. Now every time they pull that “Democrat party” stunt, we just reply back with a reference to the Republican’t party.

Our judiciary at work

Justice Scalia: “I told you I’m not a scientist. That’s why I don’t want to deal with global warming.” He’s quite right, actually: he’s not a scientist, nor should we expect him to be. That’s why our government ought to be served by competent scientific advisors…and why it’s a shame that Scalia will probably think…

TV star!

Daniel Morgan, of Get Busy Livin’ or Get Busy Bloggin’ was interviewed on the Florida 10 commandments monument. It would be a moment of glory if Sean Hannity hadn’t been involved. You can catch it all on YouTube.

Science fiction recommendations?

Wait…what about us grown-ups? What is the best science fiction novel you’ve read recently?

Science recommendations?

Let’s drop the “fiction” from the requirements: what are the best science books out there in the bookstores? I should update my updated book list for evolutionists again, so give me some good leads.
