I understand the fear of some to have religion mix with classroom teaching, but why do some teachers so go out of their way to demonize it?

There is a saying that everything should be done in moderation with the thought process that things done in excess lose their impact. Words are the same way. Use or misuse a word over and over and it's meaning is diminished. The government is good at this with it's overuse of words like," Crisis" an...

Has anyone seen this commercial of Mary Landrieu with Moon? First off, I think it comes of as desperate that she has to try and use old Dad's coattails to gain votes. Second, it's kind of disingenuous for her to let her dad talk bad about Cassidy and pretend it's all his words alone!
