Isn’t “Thou Shalt not Lie” a commandment? – Why is it then that in the name of G-D that religious groups like the National Council on Bible Curriculum find no problem in lying and using debunked myths to push their agenda?
Preacher Teacher the Prequel – I thought our problems in my town of Kearny were embarrassing with a School Administration trying to sweep a preaching teacher scandal under the rug, and a School Board too meek to do the job of oversight it should. However, I guess I should feel at least some modicum of relief that we still aren’t as embarrassing as the people in Longmont, Colorado that not only have a teach preaching religion in the class and writing a book based on his twisted teachings, and bragging how he corrupted kid’s sciece education (pdf)… and he is still teaching.
The B.K. Shuffle – According to the New York Times, “In what animal welfare advocates are describing as a ‘historic advance,’ Burger King, the worldâ€™s second-largest hamburger chain, said yesterday that it would begin buying eggs and pork from suppliers that did not confine their animals in cages and crates.” The Full Article is Here. Now it is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it is yet another piece showing that consumers can force even the big corporations to fix bad business practices.
Someone’s gonna get fired – Bad – It seems somebody on John McCain’s staff decided to pilfer a MySpace layout and not give credit as was required. Worse- He stole it from Newsvine co-founder Mike D. Even worse – The staffer hotlinked images from their server rather than download them as requested. Worst – Mike D, decided to have a little fun at McCain’s expense. Not that it matters much since McFlipFlop’s straight talk express has gone so far off track, people seem to be staying away from him in droves.
Things are a changin’ – Redux – (For those on Readers…sorry about the change).Â I am contemplating some changes around here and looking for some feeback from those few of you that do visit my little home here.Â Really what I am trying to figure out is what people do and don’t like.Â I have been hedging a bit with things such as politics and causes such as Sustainable food and Hormone free milk for fear of turning off some people, even though I do find them quite important.Â I have through e-mail gotten remarks about how this make me not enough of a… family blog and too political for some… and from others I have been told I put too much personal stuff in to be read by the politically active crowd.Â So I am wondering, what those of you who actually read this think, since my blogroll, both of the people I read, and those that read here, whether frequently or infrequently are the people that I connect with the best, and the opinions that of course matter the most to me.Â So, I will ask you what you would like to see.Â Should I section this blog out?Â Should I continue as is?Â Should I continue as is, but stop “holding back”?Â Inquiring minds want to know.Â Don’t want to leave remarks in comments, feel free to email me directly at jaymonster – at – gmail – dot – com.
Have a good weekend.
