  1. Fabulous rant. Thank goodness for Taylor Mali. Also check out his poem on the impotence of proofreading.

  2. Oh, yeah! I've seen this, it's pretty awesome.
    And, by the way, don't think I didn't notice the "damn"... I'm only letting it go, because technically it is profanity and therefore doesn't really apply to atheists.

  3. I knew you'd say that, NB. But I'm hoping you also noticed the quotation marks. And since I'm attributing this locution to someone else, I remain technically and verbally pure.

  4. it may very well be in quotation marks, however, that just means you're borrowing his language/wording. Does loaning a bad thing make it OK for someone else to use?

  5. I didn't borrow, but simply quoted. Do I become marginally illiterate when I write, George Bush often said "nukular"?
