How To Separate Church and State in 3 Easy Steps

Posted 10/13/04 on DrHurd.com...

"The Ten Commandments case to be heard by the Supreme Court is easy to solve. Here are a few simple statements of principle:

Religious views expressed on private property? Nobody's business.

Religious views endored on government property? No Way.

The way to minimize if not eliminate these disputes? The more private property, the better.

It's really as easy as that!"

New Author of note

I'm taking a break from reading Fantasy and picked up "Booked to Die" by John Dunning, which I recommend to all who are looking for a new hero. Cliff Janeway is a cop turned Book Seller who is a reality based man of thought and deed. This story also takes place in one of my favorite cities, Denver Colorado.
This is the first book by Dunning I've ever read. In fact I never heard of him until I read a review of this book on another Objectivist's site.
There are remarkably few flaws in this story [although I'm only half-way through it, so the juries still out].
Here's a good passage I like from the book...
I walked through the store and only then did it hit me--what I had taken on, what I'd left behind, how drastically my life had changed in only one month. I took a deep breath. The place smelled of paint fumes and sawdust. It smelled like a new car, though the actual odor was nothing like that. It was real, it was alive, and it was mine. It was sweet and exciting. I had a sense of proprietorship, of direction. I had a lifetime of work ahead of me, and it was very good.

Columbus Day

I can't let this day go by without thanking Christopher Columbus, who brought with him the greatness, grandeur, nobility and respect for living on earth, that is Western Civilization. With no apology, I salute you sir.
