JFK Sucks

The airport, that is, not the president. We're in the middle of a five-hour layover in an airport best described by the words "hot," "dingy," and "stale." Still three hours until boarding...

Prepare to believe: The Creation Museum is open for business. Where else can you spend $21.95 ($16.95 for seniors and $11.95 for kids) and leave your brain at the door? Unfortunately, the gift shop is pretty dull. No "Prepare to believe" t-shirts or coffee mugs, for example. I mean, who could resist one of those? You can get a DVD that exposes global warming for the hoax it is. But I have to ask: Why is the museum open on Sunday? Well, I suppose that God's work is never done...

"White privilege is when you can call yourself a "f----in' redneck," like Bristol Palin's boyfriend does, and talk about how if anyone messes with you, you'll "kick their fu---in' ass," and talk about how you like to "shoot shit" for fun, and still be viewed as a responsible, all-American boy (and a great son-in-law to be) rather than a thug." It's a lot more things, too...

I think most airports are a friggin' mess -- I won't go so far as to use Bristol Palin's boyfriends language -- well, not here in print anyway. They're just one of the dozens of things in our country today that need fixing. Hey, your vacation is off to a great start, huh?

it's unclear, did you actually go to the creation museum? or just (I hope) check out their website (only because I don't want to think you chucked over a penny to the 'cause')

thanks for posting the link to tim's great piece on white privilege - I think I sent it to everyone in my address book!

a five hour layover sounds like another trip across the pond! if so, just call me kermie!!

and if so have fun! and safe travels.

You're traveling again? Lucky you! Enjoy.

A thought: I wonder if racists ever stopped to realize that white people have been in power for 200+ years now and they've sure made a mess of things, eh?

Next time you're in Fort Worth we can go to the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose. It was here first and they have "proof" that man walked alongside dinosaurs.
The Creationists are really coming up short in the merchandising area though, but I do like this "fossilized human finger" replica. I know what I want for Christmas!
