ESPN has the story- and it bespeaks a genuinely evil misogyny.
John Gresham Machen (1923):
“An outstanding fact of recent Church history is the appalling growth of ignorance in the Church. Various causes, no doubt, can be assigned for this lamentable development. The development is due partly to the general decline of education—at least so far as literature and history are concerned. The schools of the present day are being ruined by the absurd notion that education should follow the line of least resistance, and that something can be ‘drawn out’ of the mind before anything is put in”.
That was true in the early 1920’s – and the situation is worse today.

Conferencing? That’s, to be sure, what he would have you to believe. But the truth is, he has been spending time in seclusion, weeping in the wake of the tat he got whilst a tad sauced a few weeks back which features the intentional poor spelling of a Manchester City tat artist (who is clearly no fan of Sir Alex Ferguson). See if you can spot the blunder- and then send James a consolatory epistle.
‘The youth are our future’ folk say all the time. So, America, take a look at your future:
A SUV full of teenagers crashed in Idaho after one of the passengers lit the driver’s armpit hair on fire with a lighter, authorities said Wednesday. All five young people in the Ford Bronco were hurt in the crash Sunday and received medical treatment, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office said. Two of the passengers, ages 15 and 16, were thrown from the vehicle, but none of the five suffered life-threatening injuries. The sheriff’s department said the rollover occurred after a 16-year-old boy was goofing off in the front seat and lit 18-year-old Tristian Myers’ armpit hair on fire while Myers was driving. The crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. in southeast Boise.
The future’s looking bright… ish (and by that I mean dark).
