This has been a difficult few days for your Curmudgeon. Our old adversary, AT &T, somehow shut down one of our phone lines Friday afternoon. It’s the line that also accesses the internet (no, it’s not a dial-up connection), so we were off-line for about 24 hours.
We were back on Saturday afternoon, but that phone line somehow didn’t function as a traditional voice telephone line, which it had always previously done. That got fixed this morning, and we thought the problem was solved. But suddenly — although we still have internet access — it once again stopped functioning as a telephone line.
We’ll survive. That’s not our only telephone line. It’ll get fixed, eventually, after we call AT&T and once more struggle through their ghastly automated service menus.
But that’s not all. Because this is a three-day holiday weekend, there’s virtually no news about The Controversy between evolution and creationism. Once again, it’s up to you to keep things going. Therefore, 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.
