carr2d2 reviews Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science, and Bad Religion in a World without God by Greg Graffin and Steve Olson, which she seems to like. Click here.
Glen Beck has figured out how to get some crazy person to put a bullet in the head of another liberal. No one's been shot yet but the death treats are coming along nicely. Click here.
I understand that the U.S., unlike the civilised countries of Europe, cannot treat the mentally ill because they (the mentally ill) have to pay for the treatment. But surely Glen Beck is wealthy enough to seek help?

But surely Glen Beck is wealthy enough to seek help?
He can't - his contract with FoxNews requires him to remain certifiably insane in public at all times. If he ever, even by accident, utters two at least semi-reasonable statements in a row, Fox will kick him out and hire the next best raving loon.
Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science, and Bad Religion in a World without God by Greg Graffin and Steve Olson
Been there, read that. Meh.
Graffin wanders back and forth between an autobiography of his punk career and thoughts about religion, evolution, and environmentalism. It doesn't hold together all that well.
Graffin acknowledges the bias against atheists in society - polls saying they couldn't be elected, no one wants their child to marry one, etc., but refuses to call himself "atheist" because it puts people off. I.e. he recognizes the problem, but prefers to let someone else address it.
