At the 1998 commencement for Andrews University, a school associated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, [Ben} Carson also dismissed the notion that aliens were somehow involved in the construction of the pyramids.
“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain,” Carson said. “Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don’t think it’d just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain.”
Some readers may know that our two children are mid-career philosophers who teach at the university level. Hillary Leonard, the wife of a philosopher, explains how to talk to philosophers. I wish I’d had some this advice 20 years ago.

The city of Middleboro, Massachusetts, has imposed a $20.00 fine on “cussing.”
From the Patriot Ledger,
MIDDLEBORO – Town meeting took longer to pass a $20 cussing fine Monday night than it did to pass a $72 million budget.
The budget passed without an argument, but the fines for cussing, smoking pot in public and shoveling snow in the street drew lengthy debate from the 297 residents who attended town meeting under the glare of a pack of television news cameras.
If this comes to my town, I’ll either have to ask Shirley for a cussing allowance to cover my fines or give up reading German, using books with endnotes, and trimming our bougainvillea.
Actually, I wonder if this ordinance is actually legal. I actually hope it isn’t. Not that I practically like “cussing” but that I hate restrictions on speech. I particularly dislike the idea that the decision as to what is cussing is at “the discretion of the police officer.” There is more than a little room for abuse.
Should Pomona adopt such an ordinance, I hope the officers who come after me have experience with German compounds, books with endnotes, and have recently trimmed their bougainvilleas.
The municipality of Zile in the northern province of Tokat has announced the acquisition of the Turkish patent license for the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar’s famous saying “Veni Vidi Vici” which is believed to have been uttered in district’s 4,000-year-old castle [Hurriyet]

This comment was in response to yesterday’s post announcing Dietrich and Loretz‘ paper on the Tiryns alphabetic inscription. Does this commenter know something about the function of the cylindrical ivory thingy with the alphabetic inscription that I don’t know or is he commenting on Dietrich or Loretz?
