Brin flies home today, so as a farewell dinner she's picking up the tab for a Papa John's pizza, complete with cheese sticks and a Cinna Swirl dessert.
Speaking of flying...
Remind me not to fly British Airways, because this is ridiculous:
British Airways have suspended a cabin crew steward for eating a muffin that was discarded on a passenger's meal tray, it was reported today.
BA are treating the incident as theft after he was reported at Heathrow airport on Monday.
Now, granted - it's kinda gross to do that, eating food from someone else's plate. But to call it "theft"?
And at least he didn't take it off the plate while the passenger was eating!
A top Iranian cleric says women who don't wear headscarves should die. Not content with that, he says that "their husbands and their fathers must die" as well.
No response from other non-Islamic religions saying "right on".
And speaking of religion...
Some atheists are upset because of the religious-ness of most of the presidential candidates.
Well, look at it this way - Hillary Clinton has claimed that she and her husband are both Christian and their faith is important to them. So I wonder what Jesus would think of the fact that she has done everything she can to allow partial-birth abortions to continue.
Global warming? Yeah, right.
Be seeing you.

I don't remember what banner I clicked on, but I'm glad I did. You know, it amazes me how many people are falling all over themselves to get on the GloWarmers wagon. It's such BAD science, if there's any science at all. Have you read Crichton's book, State of Fear?

Welcome in, Jeff - thanks for clicking and sticking around.
No, I haven't read Crichton's book. My position on AGW is taken from a combination of informational sites and some of the attitudes the pro-AGW group takes. A lot of the pro-AGW have taken the position of "the science is settled" (despite a great deal of folks arguing that the science is NOT settled) and that any dissent is being paid for by big oil/pro-nuclear/anti-ethanol companies...never mind that the pro-AGW are also being paid in the form of grant monies. (As I mentioned in a previous post, I managed a Unocal 76 station for five years, so it could be said I "worked for Big Oil"...so where's MY checks for being an AGW denier?)
I also have problems with how a great deal of the pro-AGW act - if Al Gore really believes in CO2 control, then why does he fly everywhere in a private jet? Wouldn't he be more believable if he biked, or drove a hybrid to all his engagements? And the recent UN climate control meetings - in BALI? Why not tele-commute, and save all that fuel and CO2?
