    Again, keep in mind that there is a reason that folks write articles for magazines instead of presenting their work in white paper for review by the scientific community. Same as creation folks.

    But then, we can't exactly say that experience has led to good governance either.

    I agree with the concept of no lifers as politicians, but it is very difficult to do. Especially since not many...

    Can't wait to see his work in the science journals.

    Oh, they are. Don't worry. :)

    If you ask me, what bothers the common person is that this is largely a semantics battle that has little basis in logic. Gay people could have all the rights that...

    The matter of what is right or wrong was not part of my comment and opinions do not, without due process, change what the law says. If you wish to have that discussion, then fine. But you needn't...

    You also have more important things to do than to discuss law, a subject in which, apparently, you have very little familiarity.

    I agree. What I would do if I had the data to do so is to plot the positions of the various observers and who said what. That might go far in revealing exactly what you say may have happened.
