Cletus says he is thinking about going to see the new Al Gore movie which he hears is much more exciting than the old Al Gore. Bubba says he really enjoys reading about climate change. The articles always remind him of something he read so many years ago that he is unable to give proper credit. Anyway it went something like this:

"It is very dangerous to interpret a single data point as a trend." Bubba says he realizes that "data" is plural but "datum" just doesn't sound right in that last sentence.

He says that human collected data on the Earth's climate are of such short duration on the existence scale as to be a mere point.

Elroy says we should have just stuck to non-blogging.
