  1. How about we fine adults $150 when they push
    The bible to other people's children American Family Association? That is truly something that has to be taught.

  2. There's no "The" in Eurythmics.

  3. I support a law that fines anyone caught pushing Christian propaganda toward children. I mean, it hardly sounds unreasonable to fine adults $150 for trying to inculcate other people’s children with their subjective beliefs about morality, but nothing angers Christian activists quite like being denied access to the hearts and minds of other people’s minor children."

  4. Thanks, Marcus. It's a strange pet peeve of mine when "the" is added, given that Annie and Dave made it clear from the start that it's just Eurythmics. No one ever called it The Culture Club...

  5. Poor,Poor LAZY Janet Napolitano needs to focus much more effort on the security efforts at Sochi since if any athletes get murdered while in Sochi it will be on her head. Time to get to work Janet and quit whining about doing the job your paid to do!

  6. SFS- quick recap. Janet Napolitano is the former head of Homeland Security. What she is presently paid to do is being President of the University of California. And her roll in Sochi is to glad hand and back slap the other delegation heads.

  7. "It's something that doesn't define him"

    Oh I get it. He's gay, just not gay-cooties gay.

    Thanks for clearing that up, Kristi.

  8. Actually, in Russia it is against the law to preach against the Russian Orthodox faith. You can practice a separate religion, but you can't proselytize against the mother church.

  9. It's not THE Eurythmics! It just Eurythmics.

    "Eurythmics will reunite..." That's how they have always wanted it.

    It's like Poco, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Steppenwolf, Snow Patrol, Five for Fighting, Counting Crows, Ukraine. No THE.
