Another female teacher has sex with a student and gets off easy. Am I the only one who has noticed that female teachers raping children is OK, but a male teacher doing the same thing would get the book thrown at them? Oh, and men certainly never would be allowed to marry to their student victims. Just saying.

Intelligent design advocates claim that they do not know who or what might be the hidden creator of life. (This is a blatant lie, of course, as they are conservative Christians who surreptitiously admit and publicly allude to the designer being the Judaeo-Christian god.) If they truly support the premise that the designer is unknown, then we must teach that the creator can as easily be the Flying Spaghetti Monster. If ID is to be treated like a true scientific theory, this is as likely as any other explanation. Now, anyone care to admit that ID is really just creationism? Or shall we have the textbooks updated to include mention of the Flying Spaghetti Monster as a possible designer? [link via Jenny]
Remember Sony using spyware to enforce their intellectual property rights? Remember that Sony stripped PCs of web security in order to remove their own spyware? Well, now Sony's getting sued from several different directions. What a shame.
Don't worry. Your cell phone records are available to anyone willing to pay the right price.
The University of Kansas wants no part of its home state's decision to push religion into science classrooms. Paul Mirecki, chairman of the university's religious studies department, said, "Creationism is mythology. Intelligent design is mythology. It's not science. They try to make it sound like science. It clearly is not." I see there is at least one smart and honest person left in Kansas.
