I have a prediction to lay upon y'all (all 1 of my readers, including myself).
I predict that some time in the first few month of 2009:
someone will forget to use the new year on a personal check,
someone will lose their keys.
someone will be unable to find the gift receipt to return the horrible thing that was given to them for the holidays,
someone will state that the commercials during the Super Bowl were the best part of the game,
And someone will sue the state of Louisiana with an establishment clause violation.
Governor Jindal, LA, signed into law the "academic freedom" bill, covered in the Times Picayune. Oft attempted by other states, including my current home of Florida (which died due to lack of time, not interest), these bills are nothing more that an attempt by the Religious Wrong to insert their faith into the public school system. When some misguided teacher attempts to "teach the controversy" about the "strengths and weaknesses" of the theory of evolution, there will be a court battle. The state will lose. They may win initially, depending on the specifics of how the case is set up but eventually they will find out that their legislation in this area is unconstitutional. It will cost them mucho dinero.
The crystal ball grows fuzzy...
