Ethnic humor is alive and well on Babylon 5
How many Centauri does it take to screw in a light bulb? Only one. But, in the grand old days of the Republic, hundreds of servants would change thousands of light bulbs at our slightest whim!

Book recommendation
I was at the Dallas airport yesterday, looking for something to read on the plane home, when I found a copy of What Americans Really Believe, by Rodney Stark. This book is an in-depth bit of statistical research into the religious beliefs and practices of Americans; it comes from the Baylor Institute for the Study of Religion.

It's a fascinating view of American religion, and it refutes all the twaddle our liberal masters have been forcing upon us in textbooks and reporting for the last fifty years. It turns out that religious believers are the mainstream, and the liberal elites are the weirdos -- but then, we all knew that. This just demonstrates it in a statistically valid way.

It's a must read!
