You know, I used to get so depressed every time I was driving down the 10 toward Palm Springs and passed by the Cabazon dinosaurs, blocked as they were now with chain restaurants. We used to joke about freeing the poor dinos from their Corporate Captors.
Now, after reading today’s Column One in the Times, that depression is turning into anger: creationists have bought out the dinosaurs and gift shop and are selling toys with labels like: ‘Don’t swallow it! The fossil record does not support evolution.’
No, I am not kidding.
