Read Anything Dumb Today?

I have. From the Star's Prime Buzz blog:

Worried about a push to take the religious references out of time, a state senator has filed a bill that would mandate the use of B.C. (Before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini or “Year of our Lord”). Many historians and textbook publishers have switched to B.C.E. (Before Common Era) and C.E. (Common Era) as a nod toward non-Christians.

Good to see one of our fine state senators following the lead of the Kentucky school board who:

"under pressure from religious groups, reversed a two-month old policy to also use B.C.E. and C.E. in schools. Education officials there said the policy was designed to prepare students taking college placement tests for the terminology."

What those education officials failed to understand was that college is for heathen liberals anyway, so it doesn't matter whether or not students do well on college entrance exams.

I'm glad we're getting on board with that.
