Just As I Thought

And Evian spelled backwards is Naive

Oh, boy — this is just one to laugh at, and you know how much I love to laugh at rightwingers. This one has everything: the delightful king-maker Katherine Harris, superstition and bunkum religion, Florida, and lots of wasted cash.

Four years ago, as the state labored to eradicate citrus canker by destroying trees, officials rejected other disease-fighting techniques, saying unproven methods would waste precious time and resources.

But for more than six months, the state, at the behest of then-Secretary of State Katherine Harris, did pursue one alternative method — a very alternative method.

Researchers worked with a rabbi and a cardiologist to test “Celestial Drops,” promoted as a canker inhibitor because of its “improved fractal design,” “infinite levels of order” and “high energy and low entropy.”

But the cure proved useless against canker. That’s because it was water — possibly, mystically blessed water.
