This was a typical headline today: Why is that news? They don’t start every day with the headline: Earth Still Spinning on its Axis Some things just aren’t news.

Fundies of Color

What both white and non-white fundies read to their children Wikipedia defines “fundie” as: Fundie or fundy (plural fundies) is a pejorative slang term used to refer to religious fundamentalists of any religion or denomination, although it is primarily directed towards fundamentalist Christians.

Death of Logic

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

(from Gaspirtz) I made the mistake of going by Clown Hall today. That’s when I realized that their name isn’t descriptive enough.
