I won&#8217;t try to emend that now, but I will observe, as I did last year, that the anti-abortion-rights crowd in America is extreme, and would garner even less support if the woman and man in the street realized the extent of their views.</p> <p>Case in point: <a href="" target="links">Mike Huckabee supports banning hormonal contraception</a> (that includes, of course, not only the Pill, but the Patch, the Shot, the Ring, et c.)</p> <p>I&#8217;ve tried writing one or two more sentences after that, and I&#8217;m afraid it can only turn into pages and pages. Look: the Culture War is not a shooting war. I know and love people who disagree with me on abortion rights. I don&#8217;t think those people want to take away the tools that allow women (and men) to start a family when they want to, when they&#8217;re ready; that stabilize hormonal imbalances and have many other health benefits, <a href="" target="links">some of which are only now becoming clear</a>. Get this information out there, including, however delicate the topic might be, to your anti-abortion-rights family and friends. This guy is an extremist. Don&#8217;t vote for him.</p> Public Service Announcement: Think of the Children 2008-01-02T16:08:55+00:00 2008-05-25T20:11:35+00:00 <p>Do you have a child, grandchild, niece or nephew that you care about? You want to do the right thing by them, don&#8217;t you? That&#8217;s why you need to talk to them before it&#8217;s too late. <b>Talk to them about dinosaurs before they learn about them on the street.</b></p> <p>Don&#8217;t let your child grow up thinking <em>Tyrannosaurus</em> has three claws. Don&#8217;t let something like this happen in your home:</P> <p><center><img src="img/cartoondino.gif" alt="Not a pretty picture" /></center></p> Another reason not to drink Coffea robusta 2007-06-06T19:10:51+00:00 2008-06-08T11:57:51+00:00 <p>It tastes like rancid carrots <em>and</em> some of it is <a href="">being illegally grown in an Indonesian national park</a>? What next, it kicks puppies?</p>
