God may work in mysterious ways, but a simple computer program may explain how religion evolved
By distilling religious belief into a genetic predisposition to pass along unverifiable information, the program predicts that religion will flourish. However, religion only takes hold if non-believers help believers out – perhaps because they are impressed by their devotion.
Oil reached more record highs last week. Hopefully, that gave pause to the folks who drive to their jobs at the U.S. Commerce Department, where they are enjoined to ignore the spiraling price of gas when calculating inflation.

The Senate Environment and public works committee had a meeting this week.
This quote is from the Senate minority communications director.
Everyone seems lining up in favor of the intermodal. The silence coming from City Council and the Mayor's office is quite deafening. When will Toledo's leaders take proactive action and begin to pave the way for this? They sure took action to say they did not want the State to take money away from the Turnpike.

Man, is he even going to be able to make it to the general election? (link)
