Ah, the spirit of the season: division and churlishness. Happy Holidays!

I had not considered that-- I wonder that the researchers had not either! Great letter.

Why was this letter published?

Let's also stop race-based admission to prisons.

This wasn't "found." It was there all along, waiting to be read.

You are right in theory, but it doesn't matter that you are right in theory. Teens have sex. Teens get pregnant. Saying something ought not to happen doesn't solve anything.

And what about Silverman's comment wasn't "live and let live?" If Tebow is constitutionally protected to pray, Silverman is constitutionally protected to say it isn't appropriate. And you are constitu more »

Children can already pray in school whenever the _children_ want. They just cannot be _compelled_ to pray by the school. Perry wants to make prayer compulsory. I'm about to use a phrase that has irked more »

If you don't bring your religion into the White House, I won't bring your religion into the ballot box. Republican candidates (Perry especially, but I include all of them here) are touting their relig more »

A very sensible letter! One small thing, though: the "battle" did not erupt in Rhode Island, it erupted on Faux news. more »

When the state sponsors it, it had better be a holiday tree. If you put it up right after Thanksgiving, and keep it on display through New Year, it is certainly a holiday-season tree. Happy Holidays, more »

This is a faux controversy invented by Faux news for the purpose of garnering ratings and making money, opening up a brand-new frontier in the commercialization of the holiday season. more »

On the contrary, my family are here in the US. It's not thoughtful membership that makes us citizens, but accidents of birth and the locations of the people we love. This also explains a lot of religi more »

I notice you don't quote or specify the occasions to which you refer. Aren't stings warranted? Stupidity, ignorance, and malice might as well be answered with wit, knowledge, and bitter humor. Take fo more »
