In response to a comment to a previous post -- about "Intelligent Design" -- I'd like to make my position clear:
1. I do not know if there is a God.
2. I hope that there is.
3. I believe that "intelligent design" is a back-door way to introduce "creationism" into the classroom, where it DOES NOT belong.
6. This country is being hijacked by the Religious Right.
7. The only difference between Richard Nixon and Saint John F. Kennedy of Brookline is that Nixon got caught. Kennedy was a liar, a crook, a drug-addict, and a womanizer. He stole the 1960 election from Nixon with help from the Mafia. But -- he saved us all from nuclear war during the Cuban Missle Crisis, so you can't help but love the guy for that.
