Intelligent Design

What’s all this about people trying to banish intelligent design from our schools? Frankly, I think that we could all use a lot more intelligent design. For example:

Why do approaches to airports always offer you a choice between “arrivals” and “departures” (I know, I know, there’s a classic bit in Big Trouble about this) — why don’t the signs say “Pick Up” and “Drop Off”? The arrival and departure signs at Midway are way too small, and they’re positioned so that you have to play chicken with a concrete barrier as you peer forward and decide which sign applies to you, and aligns with which fork of the road. That’s certainly not intelligent design.
