I just finished rereading The Handmaid's Tale for my book discussion group, and in light of Sen. Santorum's recent comments, it suddenly didn't seem quite as improbable. Now Julie has sent me this piece ofcharming news, which just reinforces my sense that the freaky, religious nuts are closing in. The South Carolina Legislature wants to erect a 6 foot tall statue of an unborn child as an anti-abortion memorial. Of course, they're having to cut the funding for schools and other critical state expenditures, but it's good to see that they're focusing on what's really important. Jeez - how do these freaks get elected?
