AN IDLE THOUGHT ON A SLOW SATURDAY

A bit of Googling confirmed my memory that Evangelical Christians have higher divorce rates, higher out-of-wedlock birthrates, and are more likely to Google porn sites than non-believing Jews, for example.  Perhaps Trump is on to something in South Carolina.  I would strongly suggest that Ted Cruz consult Matthew 23, in particular verse 27.  I assume he always has his Bible with him.

Ha! Love the use of the Matthew verse to deflate these holier-than-we evangelical Republicans. So, not only the devil, but also the atheist quotes Scripture!!

Throughout Lecture 6 I was burning to ask you a question: How did it happen that the Zhou, who once had domestic animals and other neolithic accouterments, ended up as hunter-gatherers again? Then, in the last 30 seconds, you anticipated the question and said, "Wait till next week." Looking forward to the answer.

Slow Saturday? One word: Scalia.

Is there a special place in hell from Scalia or will he have to reside with former Secretaries of State?

And now, as a friend of mine tweeted, the Republicans seem to think that our Black President has only 3/5 of a term.
