Do You Know How To Hovind?

Everyone knows that you can Google. Did you know that you can also Hovind? Notorious charlatan and tax evader Kent Hovind is fairly well known.

Maybe it should be the other way around…

My friend John Weightman wrote this in a comment on Facebook: In the UK I have noticed that there appears to be a tendency for some people to want to 'roll back the state' when it involves being generous to the disadvantaged or the sick, but to want a bigger state when it comes to [Read More...]
