Religion's not worth
When we were all young, innocent children, "religion"
was simple. Chances are your religion while growing up was identical to
that of your parents. If your parents were Catholic, you were Catholic.
If your parents were Muslim, you were Muslim. If your parents were not
religious, you probably werenit either. Things get complex when we become
capable of making the choice ourselves.
A letter to the 108th U. S. Congress
Dear members of the 108th U.S. Congress: My sincere congratulations
to you all on your success in what has been one of the ugliest mid-term
elections in living memory. I donit know how you folks do it, which is
precisely why Iill never, ever run for public office. Itis much easier
taking potshots from the relative safety of a newspaper column.
