As Bruce Fein wrote yesterday, a nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.

So, be a seagull once in a while.

UPDATE: I'm starting to think this day should become "National Be A Seagull Day". Here's a lovely little dropping satirizing the clown prince of Florida and the hateful little imbeciles who constitute his flock:

Anyway, it got me thinking about book-burning as a symbolic protest and I decided to hold a little protest of my own: I spent a couple hours reading the Koran.

I've always viewed reading religious texts as a colossal waste of time, but putting that objection aside, it sounds like a good idea. If you don't want to go to the trouble of obtaining your own copy, this site features a searchable and browsable version of the Koran. For folks whose taste in religion runs similar to mine, there's the Skeptic's Annotated Koran, the perfect companion to the Skeptic's Annotated Bible.

One way or another, we'll learn ya some of that old time religion.
