* Mocking Creation and BC Tours: Last night ABC's Nightline did a smear job reporting on our friends at Biblically Correct Tours. Call Rusty Carter, who joined Bob on today's show, and Bill Jack of BC Tours at 303 978-9615 for a great guided tour of DEMONS (Denver Museum Of Nature & Science).

* Horton Movie Mocks Homeschool Moms: (post-show note) The producers, Twentieth Century Fox and their Blue Sky Productions (Ice Age, etc.) and writer Jeff Siergey and others, created the character of a homeschool mom for the movie who is the rotten character in the movie. From iMDb:

The kangaroo is a homeschool mom who is the main villain in Horton Hears a Who! She's controlling and narrow-minded and wants to destroy Horton and his new found friends because she views them as a threat to their jungle society. The kangaroo's son asks sadly from her pouch, "Mom, why can't I play with the other kids?" and in criticizing the way Horton teaches children, she explains to the other moms, "That's why my little Rudy is pouch-schooled," a characterization that does not appear in the book by Dr. Seuss. She repeatedly tells her son to "go to his room" as she shoves his head down into her pouch. Kangaroo goes to a vulture named Vlad Vladikoff to have Horton and his little world of friends destroyed and when discussing payment, the vulture wants to take the kangaroo's son in exchange for the job. The son is frightened and looks to his mom for protection when she shuts him up and tells him, "I'm thinking about it..." In the end Kangaroo is isolated and Horton warmly extends friendship to her.

* Horton and ABC Nooze: (post-show note) ABC News reporter Marcus Baram, for the lead to their report titled Horton's Who: The Unborn, wrote this cute poem:

What is it about this children's book
That fills Dr. Seuss fans with such scorn?
Anti-abortion groups took a look
At Horton and they saw the unborn.

And assuming this ABC News/Huffington Post editor supports the intentional dismemberment and killing of unborn children, well...

Written by a creepy ole' killer,
ABC needed some filler,
But no matter how small,
Kids are kids just not tall,
So the reporter's in hell for a thriller.

* Michigan US Rep. John Dingelberry: wants to increase gas prices with an additional 50 cent "Curtis JJ III" tax per gallon.
