    Actually, I see no difference in enjoyment between a book and an ereader. The words are all the same that’s all that really matters. I love my ereader and the large number of books and magazines I can have with me at any time.

    I like the beginning of Pinocchio in which Geppetto and another man get into two knock-down, drag-out fights. I wonder why Disney left that out?

    Reading the strip I planned to comment on the same thing. [Spoiler alert] However, it could be noted that in the end the cricket turned out not to be dead.

    When I lived in Phoenix many years ago, one of my coworkers was writing out a note and asked how to spell “ornery” while pronouncing it “awn-ree.” I spelled it correctly for her and she refused to accept it. About three of our coworkers backed her up. None of them could believe that it wasn’t spelled to match the local pronunciation. I didn’t really argue much. Not worth it.

    The employer isn’t paying for birth control or for health care. The employer is paying for the employee’s labor. Period. One aspect of that payment can be access to standard insurance plans at group rates, but it’s still just compensation for the employee’s labor. The portion contributed by the employer isn’t categorized as insurance on the employer’s financial statements. It’s also not a gift expense. It goes into the payroll account on the financial statements because it’s compensation for the employee’s labor. As such, the employee has earned it and the employer has no more right to tell the employee how to use their insurance than they do telling them how to use their cash.
    It’s a misunderstanding to say that the employer is paying for insurance. It’s the employee that pays.

    That’s always been one of my favorite Doonesbury comics of all time.

    Phoebe is young enough that she could as easily have picked it up from her parents as from a more “hip” source.

    I’’ve addressed the poor logic and poor science you presented many times in the past. A quality refutation would take much more space than is appropriate for this sort of forum. But I’ll try a brief reply.
    Your variation of the 747 from a tornado in a junkyard ignores how complexity actually evolves. Variation in reproduction happens all the time and there is a mechanism for retaining some of those changes in natural selection. In your poor analogy, there is nothing to preserve pieces that fall into the right position so it naturally wouldn’t produce anything.
    As for your god of the gaps, it only pushes the question farther down the line. If what we see requires an intelligent designer, then clearly that designer is more complex and would require its own designer. And so on and so on.
    Lastly, what really puzzles me is monotheism. I can’t see any sort of logical argument for a deity that would restrict it to a single one. That’ has never made sense to me.

    Actually, it’s the theists who jump to conclusions. They look at the things that we can’t answer YET and jump to a goddidit conclusion.
    Your first statement about science isn’t true at all.
