8. The ignorance of so many people is truly appalling.
Some 80 years after the famous Scopes "Monkey Trial" in which a teacher was tried for teaching evolution in Tennessee, an event that was once widely criticized for its ignorance, once more we see denial of proven scientific fact being widely promoted by religious fundamentalists.

I don't see much real difference between some so-called "Christian" fundamentalists and the Islamic Jihadists. Both preach intolerance of those who disagree with their narrow view of the world and seek to impose their ignorance on the rest of us. No wonder that "Jesus wept."

However from a political point of view, this can only help Granholm win re-election as governor of Michigan.
