    I subscribe to various fundie and fascist e-mail alerts, so I received the AFA's alarmist e-mail on Tuesday. My favorite part of the message:

    The e-mail header was "American Girl teams with pro-abortion, pro-lesb--n group." The dashes are theirs, not mine. Perhaps they had to edit their own e-mail alert for fear of risking getting caught in my Norton anti-spam filter. (They also sell their own e-mail filter, which certainly would have kicked it out with the word [gasp] LESBIAN in the message header.) Or perhaps, as scared as they are of abortions, the thought of--you know, those...those...[whispered] L-word girls just sent their typing fingers all atwitter.

    There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. --Benjamin Disraeli, cited by Mark Twain

    •  Maybe it's a tribute to "The L-word," (none)
      secretly their all-time favorite show?  Or a sign of reverence, the same way some people write the name of the Almighty as "G-d"?

      Anyway-- pretty hilarious.
