The past two weeks have been the worst we’ve ever experienced for our kind of news. Every day has been a struggle to find something to blog about, and today is no exception. What’s going on?
Either the creationists have given up trying to generate activity we find amusing, or the press has decided to ignore their foolishness, or Google has decided not to index such things. Whatever it is, this has been a difficult time for your Curmudgeon.
To add to our difficulties, there’s been some kind of accidental change in the WordPress software. If you’ve visited our Table of Contents lately, or any of the other listings of our posts, you’ve noticed that all the items are double-spaced. WordPress says they’re looking into it, but it’s been like that for at least four days, and it may never get fixed. Nevertheless, we shall persevere without grumbling too much. [Addendum: The problem seems to have been fixed.]
Because of the lack of news, it’s up to you to keep things going during this interval, and so we declare another Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
