"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."

It might have been more witty for "Skeptic Tank" to have called my state "Alabama with beavers" if Alabama didn't have beavers, only I guess he's too much of a sci-guy to have looked it up to find it out, first. I forget, is he from New York? That great, sophisticated state that gave the nation Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani and Peter King? Not to mention dozens of others who could be mentioned. Eschaton is the Kentucky of lefties, intellectual inbreeds without much in the way of mind power but with a parochial attitude they think makes up for it. I don't think anyone over there is more critical of my state than I am, the difference is I know what I'm talking about when I do it. Update: Jeesh, you guys are so friggin' stupid.
