December 20th, 2005
Reports of my untimely demise have been greatly overstated.
I was in Portland OR on business for a few days, got back to a sick prosicated and a visiting oceanic, and have had little in the way of spare time for the past week or so. Also x-mas stuff really snuck up on me this year, and I've been scrambling to catch up. In August I had things under control, and hence completely failed to do anything towards getting purchases made, etc.
Not much other news. Band is on hiatus until around Jan 8th, as we're all sorts of out of town over the holidays.
I've noticed that when people start playing music they stop posting on LJ. Appears to be happening to me as well. Band picks up, I start playing bass at home instead of noodling on the intarwebs. Add to that the fact that I'm still trying to learn how to play banjo, and it all adds up to very little intarweb time at home.
Your blogish post from me for the day:
Intelligent Design Barred From Pa. School District
Dec. 20 (Bloomberg) -- A Pennsylvania school district can't teach ``intelligent design,'' [...] a judge ruled in a case that may discourage other challenges to the theory of evolution.
U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, ruled today that the Dover, Pennsylvania, school board can't force the teaching in high school of intelligent design[...].
``The secular purposes claimed by the board amount to a pretext for the board's real purpose, which was to promote religion in the public school classroom,'' Jones wrote in his 139- page opinion.
my home state does something right.
*blows kisses to Judge John Jones III*
or jjjiii as I like to call him. Coincidence jjjiii?
