The weekend is here!

Though having two snow days off in the week makes it feel like two weekends...

Ken Blackwell has a new job.

Amanda Marcotte comes clean as to why she left the Edwarsd campaign.

Apparently, the Jews are responsible for evolution...
A Jewish organization is demanding an apology from a Georgia lawmaker after a memo using his name claims that evolution was a myth propagated by an ancient Jewish sect.

The Anti-Defamation League, an organization that battles anti-Semitism, sent a letter to state Representative Ben Bridges on Thursday chastising him for writing the highly offensive memo, which attributes the Big Bang theory to writings in the Kabbalah, a Jewish text.

Bridges has denied writing the memo, although one of his closest political allies, Marshall Hall, said the legislator gave him the approval to draft it.

The memo asks readers to challenge the evolution monopoly in the schools by logging onto Hall's anti-evolution Web site,

Hall, a 76-year-old former high school teacher whose wife ran Bridges' election campaign, said neither the site nor the memo is anti-Semitic. I think they tar people with that brush a little too readily, he said.

The Jewish group, however, is unconvinced and asked Bridges to immediately apologize.
Apparently, there are more Jews in America than originally thought.

Have a good weekend.
