Michael Newdow, speaking of things with a long shelf life, as I was in the Twinkie post below, has leaped back into the public eye and this time as a singer-songwriter. Newdow is the atheist who sued to have the words "under God" removed from the Pledge of Allegiance and who made an attempt to keep prayers and preachers from the January Inauguration.
So what's he up to now? He has been "overwhelmed by the abundance of words beginning with the letter C that are used to describe the United States' history. OOOOOOkay. These C words include: Colonial era, Continental Congress, Articles of Confederation as well as Connecticut and Carolina. Maybe he will work his way through the alphabet and become besotted with M words associated with our early history: Minutemen, muskets, Montepelier, Massachusetts...Good use of his time, at least for the rest of us.
He has become a songwriter as well as watching those C words pretty closely. In some ways this story makes me happy. He's doesn't come off as so all fired smart after all and I can think of another C word to slot into a description of him. Via Ann Althouse
