Barclays Eagle On Endangered Species List

barclayseagle.gifIntent on making its bid for ABN Amro a success, Barclays is claiming to be seriously considering dropping its eagle logo, over concerns by ABN Amro that the large bird of prey may remind clients of the Nazi regime. The insignia, dating back 300 years, has been redesigned several times, to what some people believe now resembles the German eagle holding a swastika used as a symbol by the Nazis, two people close to both banks (Senior Anti-Anti-Semitism/Swag Correspondents) told the Times. The British bank would apparently switch to ABN Amro’s green and yellow shield, when/if the attempted acquisition is successful. (If it’s not, Heil Hitler, and viva that eagle).

    reports that saw the light of day in . Here’s an .The spin on those reports is that abnsetince-only is is a failure, but the facts show that it has the same effectiveness as birth control-based sex ed. So either they’re both failures or they’re both successes.If Palin had been in favor of birth control-based sex ed and her 17 year old daughter had gotten pregnant would that have been proof that that approach doesn’t work or it would have been an example of the fact that kids sometimes make mistakes when it comes to sex?The kicker is I’m not even in favor of abnsetince-only education for my own kids, but I can look at the case and see the flaws in the argument of my side.
