The Good Captain



None of my women have tears in their eyes
You can ask 'em about me I swear
'n they'll tell you
That's one man I swear
Yeah that's a man

RIP

Just the kids? A friend's 14 year old daughter notes that her RE teacher is unable to spell "atheist".

Why do you think being able to spell 'atheist' is a mark of anything other than that someone hasn't spelled 'atheist' in the standard way? What makes you think that spelling signifies something anything more significant than itself? It's a complete fallacy.

Labour did just the opposite of one-size-fits-all. They encouraged academies, faith schools and specialist schools.
