- I lived in South Africa for a year when I was 6 years old.
- I only drink coffee on ice (and some times it's not even fair trade!)
- I make my cats dance, but I think they like it.
- My first job out of High School was designing rave flyers.
- I want to retire in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
When I was growing up we learned about the Bible at Sunday School (actually it was called Hebrew school, but you get the idea). I am a firm believer in the separation between church and state and I think all this hoopla about a new textbook that will teach about the bible and its religious implications in school is not only unneeded but will alienate people who's religion is not based on the bible. From the AP article there is no mention of any other holy books like the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita, the Tao-te-ching, the Upanishads or the Veda. If I was a Hindu, Muslim, a Taoist or anything other than a Christian or a Jew I would feel pretty left out.
