Blogging: the classier way to fling feces
Did you ever hear somebody say, “If people evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?” It's meant to be clever, I think. Or one of those things like Steven Wright might have said. But it's just dumb. Nobody asks, “If jazz evolved from the blues, why is there still the blues?” Or, “If Christianity evolved from Judaism, why is there still Judaism?” “If American football evolved from rugby, why is there still rugby?” I could go on. I tend to do that. But look, if you don't like evolution, you should be perfectly happy with last year's flu shot.
