Home schooling works out very well, so is there some way we can run it all the way through college? (Just kidding, of course, but maybe there is something favorable about online education in that we don't have Socialist/Marxist professors using our institutions of higher education to suppress free speech and swell the ranks of the Democrat Party.)

Losing Your Best Friend

Pets are so special and so hard to part with. Our white Persian, Fluff, left us after seventeen years. But that was way back in 1990, and we've never had another since. The parting was just too painful. We still mourn for her.
First of all, let me confess that I don't waste my money on movies, so I will not be going to see Noah. However, from tone of the postings I've read below and in the other Noah column in this TH by McCullough, I'd say that the film has achieved a great deal. It has gotten some people to actually read The Bible, possibly for the first time in years. It has also sparked a lot of debate and thinking, something that many of us have become lax about lately. And it has revealed that Christians have a lot of differing perceptions as to what their religion is really all about. We truly don't all move in lock step, but who is to say that my practice of religion is better than yours? Let's face it. Hollywood has at least inspired many of us to some self-examination, and that ain't all that bad.

Why NOAH Matters!

Having read the posts written so far in response to the column, it is evident that we aren't getting Mr. McCuillough's message. All historical movies are loosely based on fact with some fiction thrown in for dramatic effect (and to sell tickets). Noah is like that, too, but it does get the debate started, and some people will actually go back and re-read The Bible to compare fact and fiction, which isn't at all bad. For some, it might be the first time they've open that book in years.

I hope that you actually went to see the movie before you became so critical of it, but i have a deep suspicion that you, like I, watched the movie trailers on TV and drew your conclusions from that. That is so dishonest, and it is exactly what this column addresses.

No, this is what people DO NOT learn in public school, where they're supposed to learn it, and then carry over into journalism. Spelling, grammar and punctuation really don't count anymore, especially in this age of "texting," so get used to having to wade through and parse every sentence for meaning.
Hey, Moonbat, where did you learn to spell like that? Twenty-four words and six of them misspelled ... that's amazing! I'm still trying to parse what the heck 'acclleating' means in the context of that illiterate sentence.

Incredible, Shrinking Obamacare

Not only have the three networks failed to report adequately, but the stories they did air were on the first few days of the year; NBC on January 1, ABC and CBS on January 2, and CBS again on February 8 (The low audience Saturday news). Once it looked like Obamacare was going to be a disaster, the networks quit reporting on it. 31 minutes, with 90% of it on the first two days, is not reporting the news -- it is covering up the crime scene stain on the carpet.

Traitorbill, a double negative equals a positive, so you must have meant to write, "...and we have seen everything now." Where Obamacare is concerned, we are going to see a lot more bullying. If it ever makes it to the one-payer system that it is designed to achieve, it won't be worth the cost of education and experience to become a doctor anymore, and the medical field will suffer extreme drought. Maybe barbers can become our medicos once again.
