More than Christine O'Donnell, for sure

During America’s Great Migration, six million people left their homes in the South to escape Jim Crow. Today, more blacks live in Chicago than the entire state of Mississippi.

A tree may grow in Brooklyn, but in the Minneapolis suburbs, a new Walgreens or CVS sprouts every 30 days. Old folks.

The curious Minneapolis weather nerd, Paul Douglas, cites the curious claim that more Americans are killed by deer every year than tornadoes or hurricanes. Not in Lubbock.

Another curious claim: a new study claims atheists and agnostics know more about religion than do the faithful. Some skeptics think the survey proves only that atheists and agnostics have more sex. “Oh, God. Oh, God. Oh, God.”

I carry a deer whistle, still in the original package in the trunk of my car, waiting to be installed on a front bumper. My husband thinks it's a crock, but I point out to him that, since I bought the damn thing, I haven't hit a deer.
