S&L Ed makes an evolution faux pas

On his blog, S&L Ed writes:

"I think it's because he knows that if he says that we are not descended from apes, he's killed his credibility because the evidence is so strongly in favor of that theory..."

Actually, evolutionary theory posits that apes and humans share a common ancestor, not that humans are descended from apes. Of course, this is hardly S&L Ed's first faux pas (nor will it be his last--he makes them just about every time he opines), but one would think an evolution advocate would get the theory straight.

Ed Brayton's "colleagues"

On his blog, usurer Ed Brayton writes:

"In the interests of full disclosure, let me say that Genie Scott is a friend and a colleague."

To which I reply:

Playing sycophant to scientists does not give you vicarious credentials.

Liberal "Math"

Excerpt from Mountain: Math curriculum doesn't add up

So then, after eliminating any potential mitigating factors, what could possibly account for the steady decline in the sixth-grade math MCAS scores?
The only logical and remaining explanation is change that occurred in the Newton math curriculum itself - the subject matter of what is taught and how, what is emphasized and what is not, what has been omitted and what is new. In short, what has changed in the elementary and middle school math curriculum to have affected such a dramatic decline in the MCAS scores?
Answer: the new math curriculum, otherwise known as anti-racist multicultural math.

ACLU gaff

On its web site, the ACLU claims the "freedom of speech is the first freedom mentioned in the First Amendment." However, the first freedom mentioned in the First Amendment is freedom of religion:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

The ACLU's use of ellipses is disingenuous.

(Thanks to my friend Richard for pointing this out)
