This is just a quick post since I have dirty dishes and laundry backed up and I'm too tired to think, anyway. I want to reprint something from Patriot Boy that I thought was hilarious:

Alabama Development Office
Dear Mr. Wade,
Have you read what Toyota President Katsuaki Watanabe said recently while visiting the French in Ontario? Here it is in case you missed it:
[Watanabe] said Nissan and Honda have encountered difficulties getting new plants up to full production in recent years in Mississippi and Alabama due to an untrained - and often illiterate - workforce. In Alabama, trainers had to use "pictorials" to teach some illiterate workers how to use high-tech plant equipment.
We have to do something about that. No, I'm not saying that we should raise taxes to fund public schools--I hate communism. Homeschooling and Christian schools are giving our children a fine Christ-based education. We don't need any fancy ciphering or reading knowledge beyond what's required to read the Bible and neither does Toyota. We just need to educate a few CEOs.
Perhaps the Alabama Development Office could pilot a demonstration Intelligent Design automobile manufacturing plant. Just bring in a few raw materials, say a prayer, and wait for God to put it all together.Please consider it. By investing now in faith-based manufacturing, Alabama could become the leader in implementing modern conservative values.
Heterosexually yours,Gen. JC Christian, patriot
I thought it was funny. I was also amused to see that after my last post my sitemeter went crazy and started registering 25 hits per hour. I think it might have been the phrase "wonder of a naked man" in the first few lines. Unfortunatley none of those people hung around long enough to learn about the school funding crisis.
