Re: “UPDATE: Firing recommended for teacher who prompted ACLU complaint

Teaching ABOUT Christianity, or atheism, or Islam, or any other religion, in an appropriate context (probably not a US history class, but in human geography, or world history, or even literature) is perfectly fine.

Teaching THAT Christianity and its tenets, or Islam, or atheism, or any other realities belief, are correct and should be followed is never appropriate in a public school class.

Re: “Blue Hog Report pursues judicial discipline complaint over Judge Dan Kemp

Why isn't this on TV? Because it requires more understanding of complicated subject matter than you can generally fit into a local TV reporter's head.

Re: “Tom Cotton continues his obstructionist ways

I get tickled at right-wingers who think that liberals are unfamiliar with Blazing Saddles, or who believe it somehow angers those of us who are, or who think that the minds behind it weren't Hollywood left-wingers like Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor. Perhaps they think it's a documentary, or wish it was.

Re: “UPDATE: Hutchinson's objection to the BIA: Are those really Quapaw graves?

It sounds like someone trying to use big words without knowing what they mean. "Decedent" is a person who dies, as in "the decedent's relatives held a memorial service." Context indicates that !Asa! meant "descendants," which are the opposite of ancestors. "Unrequited" means "unreturned," usually in relation to feelings such as love or hate. Context indicates that !Asa! probably meant "unresolved."

"Decedents"? "Unrequited issues"? I hope these are mistranscriptions and not the actual words !Asa! used in an official letter.

Re: “Death penalty repeal clears Senate Committee

Hiland's comment makes me wonder: How many innocent people plead guilty because they are threatened with the death penalty? I suspect if you asked Hiland, the answer would be none, but I'm not sure I ever met a prosecutor who believed that innocent defendants exist.
