Monkeys being monkeys, again.
I'm trying to work up the right amount of anger about all of the silliness I've seen today, but for some reason I just can't. It's just a bunch of monkeys, anyway. Homo sapiens. Don't take the "sapiens" part too seriously.

Pagans holding a ritual at a public park in North Carolina were harassed by Christian demonstrators, one of whom shouted Bible passages during the entire hour-long event. Leaders for the Coven plan to contact legal counsel as to whether or not police officers properly discharged their duties under a state law that prevents the disturbance of religious events.

"I don't remember more than a couple accidental demolitions a year." So said city attorney Jeffrey Eichner, who is defending the city of Rochester, New York, against the second claim this year that the city razed the wrong building by mistake. The city has promised to buy accurate property maps and distribute them to contract demolition teams in the future. Now there's a thought.

The Montana Family Coalition has started a new campaign to "not surrender the last frontier of the culture war," namely gays on television. It seems that Queer Eye has outraged quite a few "conservatives." You just know the reporter of that piece was metaphorically rubbing his hands with glee over a quote like, "A really good reality show for gay people would be five gay men dying of AIDS."

Homo moronis, perhaps? Although my Latin might not be correct--I'll have to check with my resident Classics scholar on that one.
