T. GAMBLE: Noah's ark park takes water in tax-break fight

OPINION: Kentucky tax officials nix tax breaks over requirement park employees believe ark was real

I’m no Sherlock Holmes, but if you tell me you are opening a Noah’s ark theme park, naming it Ark Encounter, and your company is Answers in Genesis, I imagine I’d at least have an inkling your employees planned to talk about Noah’s ark and it is doubtful they intend to say it is all a farce.

T. GAMBLE: Promise of man being eaten by snake a crushing disappointment

OPINION: Rabid Discovery Channel viewers express anger when snake-eats-man episode does not deliver

Viewers expressed outrage that the lead-up indicated the man would be swallowed, but, instead, he was only almost crushed to death. Until this event, I did not realize Discovery Channel viewers were such a violent lot.
