Why the Swiss Scorn the Superrich

Texas school board approves all but one science text bookThe exception is authored by someone who testified against Intelligent Design. This is actually progress. Though I am mortally tired of educational policy being dictated by willful idiots who think The Flintstones was a documentary.

How Republicans are sabotaging the ACA, hurting the poor, and driving up costs for the middle classThere's literally no one who is helped by Republican actions. […] This is simply spite, cruelty and take-no-prisoners social darwinism write large. It's sociopathy codified into public policy. And it's mainstream Republican lawmaking in 2013.

Your subject line: One thing I've always wanted/wondered about was if you could untangle the "Canticle" part of "Scarborough Fair/Canticle" from the song. I mean, there's definitely a Scarborough Fair song. So is there a Canticle, that Simon and Garfunkle blended in? Or is it just random lines.

And yep, definitely blazing in scarlet battalions, as the generals order their soldiers to kill.
