This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

We will no longer be using the word "blog".

CNN.com - Georgia considers banning 'evolution' - Jan. 30, 2004:
"Superintendent Kathy Cox said the concept of evolution would still be taught under the proposal, but the word would not be used. The proposal would not require schools to buy new textbooks omitting the word evolution and would not prevent teachers from using it."

"Cox repeatedly referred to evolution as a 'buzzword' Thursday and said the ban was proposed, in part, to alleviate pressure on teachers in socially conservative areas where parents object to its teaching."

This is great. We've got people so worked up over a word that's been demonized out of usefulness. Its another casualty in the war on meaning. Is the answer just more dishonest language? If a word gets re-defined, we find a new word? In this case the phrase will be "biological changes over time". Like what happens if you get fat from eating too many potato chips?

"If you're teaching the concept without the word, what's the point?" said Rep. Bobby Franklin, a Republican. "It's stupid. It's like teaching gravity without using the word gravity."

Gravity?... oh.. does he means "Changes in location due to the proximity of a neighboring mass"?

The day that the creationist succeed in replacing evolution with their whacko brand of pseudo-science will be the day we'll be officially too dumb to govern ourselves. Box it up, put it in the attic, we don't need no common sense no more!
