The End is Near
All of a sudden family and friends are sending good links.
Kris sent this link, which is a performance of the Hallelujah Chorus that is very clever. I think the introduction is overlong; you may disagree. I also didn't like the St. Francis of Sissies thing. What is that about? Are they saying something about monks, St. Francis, gays, or Roman Catholics? But if you can get past that, the performance itself is clever.
Brother Ted (a sibling, not a monk) sent this video of Congressman Shimkus from my former Congressional District in Southern Illinois, explaining why global warming couldn't be happening.
Lord, help us.
I try to be respectful of other people's beliefs, but if they're going to be spouting blather like that, they deserve to be challenged. Actually, Shimkus is a perfect representative for Southern Illinois. Unfortunately, he has a vote in Congress.
Do you ever have the feeling that you're living in a science fiction novel, where the decisions are made by people who don't believe in history or science, but instead worship strange idols that are not subject to any sort of empirical test, and that that leads to the destruction of human life? I have that feeling all the time now.
