Apocryphal Tales and Long-Term Results — Mmm, oaken starships. Wait, John McLoughlin already wrote that one.

A message for Washington on schools: Don't mess with Texas — Ah, local control. This reminds me of my Mennonite cousins, whose college-eductaed parents (mid-life converts) stopped their children's education at 9th grade because they didn't need more. Best way to keep your kids in ignorance is to raise them ignorant. That's why liberal-progressives value education so highly. I want my daughter to have choices, even ones I might not agree with.

I think that any time a person shies away from knowledge, that's a bad sign.

Being afraid of the truth, that's a bad sign.

Fear of knowledge is fear that power will be taken from you. That's a sign, I suspect, of undeserved authority.

I'm currently, erm, pinioned by said book.

Oh I'll read Pinion but maybe I can get the author to read a passage to me too. I think I know that guy.
