Tuesday night I was helping my nephew with his homework. I won’t go into the blatant environmental propaganda, but I did promise him that I’d address the logical fallacies in his assignment when he was older.
What prompted this post? Several spelling errors were pointed out during my review of his assignment. What was his response? He grabbed his iPod and started up a spelling app. My brother and I exchanged looks and then came up with the same answer. It’s no different than if he looked the words up in a dictionary. If anything, it was better because the app assisted in finding the right words.
Sometimes even I have to shove down my inner Luddite.

The latest one is very cool to me because the artist is a friend of mine, Ben McSweeny. (Click through to see the pic) Click here if you want to see more of Ben’s stuff. One thing Ben prides himself on is an accurate depiction of weapons.
Growing up, Real Genius was one of those movies I watched repeatedly. Enough times that my friends and I can repeat whole scenes from memory. It’s one of those movies that are part of the “required viewing” for our group in order to get some of the references.
Weakening the necessary laws leads to selective enforcement. Selective enforcement leads to disregard and disdain of the law. Three felonies a day. That’s what the average American commits as they go through their lives. How many of us even think about that until we have a prosecutor throwing every charge they can think of at us in order for us to plead down. Or we commit suicide.
