I'm from Missouri

This site is named for the famous statement of US Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver from Missouri : "I`m from Missouri -- you'll have to show me." This site is dedicated to skepticism of official dogma in all subjects. Just-so stories are not accepted here. This is a site where controversial subjects such as evolution theory and the Holocaust may be freely debated.

My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

Thanks for the link Larry,

I was able to listen to some of the testimony live! I heard some good testimonies in favor of strengths and weakness. I missed the opposing views but oh well...I seen plenty of it in writing...

You might try the same link tomorrow and maybe Friday -- the board will probably have some discussions before taking votes.

Also, if you have broadband, you can go to the meetings' archived audio files after they are posted here.

With my dial-up modem connection, I am unable to listen to the archived audio files continuously.

Also, you might want to check out the above websites that live-blogged the Wednesday meeting.

As I said, I prefer "strengths and criticisms" to "strengths and weaknesses."
