Friday Fluff

"The only moral abortion is MY abortion":
"I've had several cases over the years in which the anti-abortion patient had rationalized in one way or another that her case was the only exception, but the one that really made an impression was the college senior who was the president of her campus Right-to-Life organization, meaning that she had worked very hard in that organization for several years. As I was completing her procedure, I asked what she planned to do about her high office in the RTL organization. Her response was a wide-eyed, 'You're not going to tell them, are you!?' When assured that I was not, she breathed a sigh of relief, explaining how important that position was to her and how she wouldn't want this to interfere with it.' (Physician, Texas)"
Bill Moyers: 'A time for heresy':
"Many Baptists are fundamentalists; they believe in the absolute inerrancy of the Bible and the divine right of preachers to tell you what it means. They also believe in the separation of church and state only if they cannot control both. The only way to cooperate with fundamentalists, it has been said, is to obey them. "
Science News Article:
"OSLO (Reuters) - Humans are responsible for the worst spate of extinctions since the dinosaurs and must make unprecedented extra efforts to reach a goal of slowing losses by 2010, a U.N. report said on Monday.

Habitats ranging from coral reefs to tropical rainforests face mounting threats, the Secretariat of the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity said in the report, issued at the start of a March 20-31 U.N. meeting in Curitiba, Brazil.

'In effect, we are currently responsible for the sixth major extinction event in the history of earth, and the greatest since the dinosaurs disappeared, 65 million years ago,' said the 92-page Global Biodiversity Outlook 2 report."
Be your own coach
"Sometimes I think we keep going for the Coach CEO or the Coach President not so much because we think we have found our true leader but because we don't trust ourselves to make the hard decisions, and accept ultimate accountability. It's easier to support the guy who promises to turn the company around or lead the country to victory - and then to fire him when he fails - than it is to take the job of being your own coach. That means taking the responsibility of whipping yourself into shape, making a game plan and sending yourself out to do your personal best, win or lose."
