Just received in email, forwarded from a "Robert Lawrence," along with a linked graphic.
Texas has declared the ICR Graduate School Science Education program unsuitable for Higher Education in the state! The following ad will be distributed through Texas newspapers on Sunday, May 4. Please pray with us that many will "see" and understand the significance of this action in "The Long War Against God." Thank you.

On general principles, anytime I get a communique from a stranger that has "friend" in the salutation, I instinctively want to reach for my wallet, my mind, and my gun — all at the same time.
Get the hell out of my email with your imaginary friend fantasies, you primitive moron.
But since I bothered to blog this, allow me to be charitable and offer a word of advice: when you go begging to the state (the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, in this case) for your "Certificate of Authority," you deserve everything you get.
I was fortunate to learn very early on (maybe first year HS or even before) the rule that but for a single exception, all punctuation always goes inside quotation marks — that sole exception being a question mark, when the sentence as a whole is a question but the quoted material is not, in itself.
I see this — "This is an example". — all the time and it drives me crazy. Please, people.
