Two quick and fun things worth mentioning

(1) SpongeBob is uneqivocally welcome at the United Church of Christ. Story, with picture, here. Favorite bit:
Joining the animated fray, the United Church of Christ today (Jan. 24) said that Jesus' message of extravagant welcome extends to all, including SpongeBob Squarepants - the cartoon character that has come under fire for allegedly holding hands with a starfish.
(2) President Bush was short on cash last Friday:
Even President Bush himself - champion of the wealthy that he is - comes up a little short sometimes. At Friday's National Prayer Service, Bush was left red-faced when the collection came his way and he didn't have any cash on him, according to Sky News. Dubya declined Vice President Cheney's offer to spot him a bill, and instead asked his dad, ex-Prez George H. W. Bush for a loan. How's that for taking money from the elderly.
Savannah put it best: "You wouldn't think someone could sum up his entire life so neatly in one moment."

1 comment:

  1. I think his life would have been summed up better if his father became Pope, W. became a cardinal. His father was then ousted after a failed a crusade, but the christian world liked him enough to replace him with his son, who then decreed that passing the collection plate was not necessary and unholy so that he would never be in that situation again.

    oh, and then W. carries on his father's crusade and tries to convert a few other neighboring countries just for good measure.
