More Evidence Of America's Continuing Decline

I don't think I'm a prude, but one doesn't have to be to oppose allowing minors to perform in strip clubs.

Rhode Island: too small to be a state; too large to be an insane asylum.

H/T to Xrlq.

Interesting Campaign Slogan

An interesting e-mail just came across my desktop, with the subject line "Help John Bell defeat Anti-Gay Delegate Bob Marshall." It was for a fundraiser for the Democrat candidate against Bob Marshall.

I would guess that this means that John Bell is "Pro-Gay."

I suppose that if one wants to affirmatively campaign on a pro-homosexual sodomy platform, one could, but I wouldn't expect it to be successful anywhere other than San Francisco, or perhaps Greenwich Village in New York.

Politics Trumps Faith

Jimmy Carter apparently has decided to leave the Southern Baptist church over his political disagreements over the church's teaching over the role of women.

Yet another Democrat for whom politics is more important than religion. Color me shocked.

It seems that over a thousand law professors from around the nation have signed on to a letter endorsing President Barry's nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the United States Supreme Court. It contains a virtual rogue's gallery of the Left of legal academia.

Just for grins, I checked out the names from my law school, Emory University School of Law, to learn who signed onto it.

One of those names, Professor Frank J. Vandall's --- my Torts professor (he memorably described a faulty rug in class as "a tort waiting to happen") --- is misspelled. One of the "Ls" is omitted from his last name.

One would have thought that those involved would have gone to the trouble of spelling one of the participant's name correctly. After all, Senate Democrats and other critics once savaged a Reagan appointee, Judge Daniel Manion of the Seventh Circuit, for typographical and spelling errors appearing in his briefs, and tried to derail his nomination on that basis.
