Can I just say, and it's my blog so I can, that I am not always trying to start a row. When I quoted that line from the West Wing it wasn't a political statement about the New Labour Government (I think they have done reasonably well) but a well crafted line from a great dialogue writer - Aaron Sorkin and his team are fantastic.
I like to post something most days and as I'm working quite hard on a couple of deadlines and also trying to write a detailed 'What's scientific about my faith?' essay.
Don't take me too seriously. Read for the twinkle. You haven't seen it for a bit. Or ever.
By the way I don't mind the discussions and comments; I'm just amazed how trivial a matter seems to have started a serious one.
