Mama!, Monkey Business, -and- Dress Code

Mama! - Web site saves baby
Monkey Business - failure to prove evolution cancels professor's grant
Dress Code - 10-year-old girl demands right to wear miniskirt to school

POSER: (Answer will appear on Monday.)
Q: What do you call a serial gratuity leaver?

Last summer, a federal judge in Chicago ruled unconstitutional the old tradition of holding Boy Scout Jamborees at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia every four years. Yesterday, oral arguments commenced in Chicago at the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. If the decision is upheld, the military will be barred from providing Jamboree campsites at Fort A.P. Hill to the Scouts.

The Boy Scout Jamboree has been held at Fort A.P. Hill since 1981, and the military has provided support and resources for every Boy Scout Jamboree since the first one in 1937. Some 40,000 Scouts and adult leaders attend the Jamboree, and no president has turned down an invitation to speak at the gatherings except for Bill Clinton.

This is simply an attempt by the the American Civil Liberties Union to rid the public square of boys in uniforms who swear to serve God and country! This is counter to the very moral ethic upon which our nation is built!

Yesterday's beautiful weather appears to have departed. It is overcast and breezy. The birds are not singing. It could, however, certainly be worse! Click to enlarge.
