Things have been a little off in my world lately, but I’ve recently come to the conclusion that Barbara Walters has done a great service to the world – she’s shown just how low the state of education in this country has fallen.
Case in point, Sherry Shepherd . . . .
Ms. Shepherd’s recent observations that Christianity predates even Greek and early Roman civilization and quite possibly man and dinosaurs is a great relief to me. I was wondering just how stupid that American society has become, and Shepherd has graciously provided a quantifiable benchmark to measure that stupidity.
I almost forgot about this . . . make me wanna jump back and kiss mahself . . . HAH!
Rain’s covered the Godfather of Soul’s moves. Now here’s Eddie Murphy with the guide to understanding James Brown.
Reminds me of the time I suggested to a chamber of commerce director that they could enliven their fall festival by holding a James Brown Road Rally. Each participant would bring their own four-door Cadillac, a handgun, a selection of prescription pills and liquors. The winner would be the one who had the greatest number of different law enforcement agencies pursuing them back through town.
Goodgod . . . . . HAH!
Thanks to Bagel, I get another midday reminder of how enlightened some of our God-fearing Christians really are:
Wasn’t this already done as “The Stepford Wives”?
From the Author (via Amazon.com)
My name is Leah Kelley. Though I am the author of several stories, novellas, and novels, I am first and foremost a stay-at-home wife and mother. As far as my writing goes, romance is my passion. I grew up in the late 70’s and early 80’s with Kathleen Woodiweiss, Johanna Lindsey, Amanda Scott, all those authors who used to write the best books with alpha-male heroes. Unfortunately the romance genre has decided to “reform” itself to look better in the public eyes (more politically correct), so you no longer find those good old-fashioned romance stories. As a matter of fact, I rarely find a book on the shelf I want to read anymore. It’s so disappointing.
So I write, as I have done since I was thirteen years old. I love to create stories with strong heroes teaching and leading their feminine heroines as set up in the Bible. Men were never meant to be the wimps the world and the church have taught them to be. They were meant to lead their families, not be a joke to them. They were given authority over all in their families and with that comes the right to back up that authority. Nowhere in the Bible is authority given without the means to back it up. The Bible even says the person in authority has to give account for the ones under his authority. Do you think it would be fair to expect a husband to answer for his wife if he has no control over her actions? I don’t. That’s why I believe he has the right to spank his wife if need be.
In my stories I try to strike a balance between love and discipline. The hero has that “edge” but it is tempered with the knowledge that he loves the heroine and wants only what is best for her. To date I have completed three novels, two novellas, and a host of short stories with many more works in progress. I hope you will enjoy them.

Thanks to Kelly for reminding me of my agnostic duty . . .
I’m putting odds on Pat Robertson as the best pick to follow Jerry Falwell to the biggest surprise of their afterlife.
I’m guessing that Pat will a) be crushed while doing one of his famous 2-ton leg presses; b) die from Red Chinese-poisoned wheat gluten in his Heavenly Protein Shake, or; c) suffer a massive embolism when he sees two or more Regent University graduates under Congressional immunity instead of God’s protection.
Place yer bets – the wheel is spinning!
I’ll admit rather readily that I’m an agnostic. I do believe that there is some central phenomenon that dictates how the world goes ’round, so to speak, but I’m not ready to accept that the Bible – such as it is – or the Torah or the Koran or the Book of Mormon or whatever ‘holy’ book you choose is the explanation of it all. I certainly don’t accept baptism, transubstantiation, or any other religious or mystical rite as anything more than tradition, and I’ve seen religion cause more hate and discontent in my time than any single other cause.
Do you need a fairy tale to justify being a good, decent person?
