Partisanship, Evolution, and Airlines

Stay tuned over the next couple of days as we celebrate Partisanship Weekend at SwanBlog. I am going to address some problems with the definition of "partisan" that is being used in connection with some recent news stories. There will be a series of posts on this topic.

After that, we will have Evolution Week at SwanBlog.

In other news, after my flight was delayed three hours, I sat next to a guy on a DC-9 who had two days worth of body odor stored up. It was not to the point where one starts to smell like urine, but getting close. That little air nozzle in the ceiling was absolutely essential for me to actually breathe.

A few years ago a fully booked flight required that a young lady sit between two guys she didn't know. I was one of them.

It was a delightful flight all around. That it is extremely unusual, at least in coach class, is disturbing.

The seemingly feminist practice of sexual apartheid aloft isn't far removed from Islam's shuttering females away for males.

PC and Islam on the same page. Imagine that.
