Besides the laryngitis, I mean…

Updates on Life in The Country™ Went to talk to the duck-doc today about Larry and his broken leg. Apparently the leg is coming along fine and the duck-doc could find nothing to explain his enui. [Larry's, that is. The duck-doc's ennui is his own business.] Maybe he’s just sick o’ bein’ sick — like [...]

Belief Shapes Zeitgeist Shapes Behavior

From Daniel Pipes comes this interesting insight into the Muslim world-view: Considering the Muslim reputation for archaic customs, it is ironic to note that Islamic civilization not only portrays women as sexually desirous, but it sees them as more passionate than men.

It’s not racism — perish the thought! It is “caretaking.” Didja know that in Cahleefohrneeah a black child is not allowed to be given the standardized IQ test? Yep, since a 1979 court case where IQ tests were determined to be “racist.” And no one has, in the intervening quarter-century, developed a “less racist” test. [...]
