Sarah, if you believe that the cell is the unit of life ( and it is not )and you would, given our Darwinian basis of education, then you see bacteria as another catastrophe worthy of govt intervention. But if you do not and believe in homeopathy and its ramifications. , then this is just another probem that can be solved with an energetic solution.

This really is an important issue. We should not all be using anti-bacterial soaps in our homes, that has contributed tot he problem. Good old fashion soap and water works just fine.

Prayer in the schools is the answer, that and making this country a truly Christian nation once again. (Well, it seems to be the answer to an awful lot of Observer commentators of late.)

Christopher gets it wrong. Unions are the answer. they make you dumb. Christopher hates anything exept unions. I bet the bacteria Sarah is talking about comes from poor sanitation, lack of latrines. This kills more than AIDS folks. But the dems pander to the aids victims. Christopher, you do not know of the rich knowledge hidden in the bible and other ancient writings. You confirm what I say about union dunderheads. They make fools out of themselves almost evertime they open their mouths. I see you have been listening to rush or reading something for your worker article. Funny how unions were left out.Teaching Darwin in our schoos makes for vast dumbness in the population.Funny Paul, i read these posts and i do not see prayer posted often. Mostly it is liberal stuff.

Damned, Steiner, I truly love you. No matter what, you always make me feel a LOT better about myself.
