Sort of Christian matzah, as they are both sold around the same time.

Hold The Sprouts

This says it was filed Friday at 5:38PM [EDT?] on MSNBC, Voluntary recall of sprouts

Amalgamated Produce, Inc. of Bridgeport [Connecticut] has announced a voluntary recall of sprouts because they have the potential to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

It affects Specialty Farms, Vermont Sprout House, Nature’s Promise and BroccoSprouts distributed by API in Bridgeport with sell-by date codes of March 31 through April 27, 2009.

They must use the same PR firm as the FDIC, as both seem to make their announcements after working hours on Friday.

They Just Aren’t That Into You…

Shannon Colavecchio, Times/Herald Tallahassee Bureau, says that the GOP agenda loses traction in Florida Senate. Given that the GOP has 65% of the Senate seats, and 65% of the seats in the Florida House, the reality is that this is the agenda of the Christianists, and the GOP has been stringing them along to maintain power. There is nothing preventing the Republicans from doing anything they want – they “own” the legislature and the governor’s chair, so if it isn’t getting done, the Republicans just don’t want to do it.

This is what the GOP doesn’t want to do:

Conservative legislation going nowhere

SB 2396: Evolution — Requires that public school instructors teach a “thorough presentation and critical analysis of the scientific theory of evolution.”

SB 1360/HB 533: Inspirational messages — Gives school districts authority to allow for an “inspirational message,” including prayer or invocation, at noncompulsory high school events as long as a majority of students participating request the message and select a student to deliver it.
