commented on It Just Makes Sense
@3 About 3/4 of the books I buy are digital-only because I don't want to store them for all eternity, just put the words in my brain. However, the books I do want to store for all eternity, I also want digital copies of for free. So the Bryson proposal saves trees.
commented on Get Ready for the Coming Pledge of Allegiance Outrage
I said the Pledge of Allegiance every day - even in high school - and when I was an atheist I did not say "Under God". But that's not a solution, it's an accommodation to a situation where it was pointed out to me every day that I did not belong in America. Just imagine that it said "One Nation, Of Straight People".
