  1. I love Vi. We need more leaders like her in my state.

  2. I just got back to this post and read the piece on Ken Ham. Here, he is quoted as saying that the dinosaurs on the ark were teens. Back when I heard him speak at a megachurch (2001 or 2002) he said that Noah and company carried dino eggs onto the ark. I guess he's encountered newer, better information about this issue.

  3. Michelle -- Eh, it's all mythology to me.

  4. Oh, it is to me, too. I just think that egg-harboring makes a better beginning for a great sci-fi story. ;)
