This week contains multitudes

  1. Note to new citizens – names of cherished institutions may change at the whim of cabinet ministers.

  2. And the only one we should be promoting the hell out of is National Science and Technology Week….so naturally we have it announced by an evangelical

    • Yes, those evangelicals are contemptible, aren’t they Emily? They should be made to wear yellow crosses, or some such prominent identifying marker, in public, and should be prevented from holding certain public offices.

      • Pretty low yourself OB.

        • Pretty low of Emily to suggest that Christians are somehow unfit to hold certain public offices or jobs.

          • Gosh, people say that about Muslims on here all the time, Bean….you think Evanjellyrolls are better? Sounds racist to me.

          • That too, if it’s what she meant.

  3. Nice use of Whitman poem if that’s what u doing, Wherry.

    Song of Myself

    Do I contradict myself?
    Very well then I contradict myself,
    (I am large, I contain multitudes.)

  4. I don’t understand. There was ample opportunity there for a reference to a job killing carbon tax.

  5. it’s an omnibus week.
