Scott DeLong commented on Joan Denoo's blog post Isn’t it time to save the the U.S.A. from the South?
"Unfortunately the South is an intellectual desert and will stay like that, until there is greater funding for education in our schools. That is when things in the South will likely change for the better."

Autism, Asperger's and Atheism

It's a language barrier and social barrier that's rough enough to work through without the added ick of religious platitudes. Whether you have it, know someone who does, or are just interested in knowing more, all are welcome!

Hello Scott, I am happy to share a friendship with you and learn more about you. Although I share an aversion for the same people and their types as you, I have, perhaps, a more optimistic view on humankind and life in general. I have a great interest in politics, economics, humanism, and love to garden, read non-fiction books, especially history. I foresee some interesting discussions with you, although I am not a philosopher.
