Catching up

One of the problems of being away from the office is coming back, especiallly after being gone for 2 weeks. I have a stack of mail--both e-mail and snail mail--to wade through, plus all the stuff to follow up on from ETS & AAR/SBL. It is better now that I have a laptop, but the snail mail is still stacked up.

Begin idle musing:

But, I also missed some good stuff on some blogs, for example this one about pacifism on Jesus Creed. At the risk of incurring the wrath of "gun-toting" Joe Cathey, who said some nice thing about me here, I must say I agree with Scot. As Christians, our highest allegiance must always be to God, not the state. But, Scot says it so much better than I do. As one of my theology professors used to say, "You owe it to yourself to read this."

By the way, I am tempted to take Joe up on his challenge about no firearms in the house, but as I explained to him, it would be unfair. We live next door to one of the police officers in town, and everyone knows it. So, I might not have firearms, but Terry has enough for a small army :)

End idle musing

The true test of my sign theory would be to do it in downtown Dallas or some other crime infested metroplex. If this could be done two things would become apparent. 1. All of your possessions would vanish almost overnight. 2. Most likely you and your family would be forced out of your nice house at gunpoint - the crack heads would have need of it doncha know. However, you would not have to worry - you could just give me a jingle and I would help you rectify the situation!

Take care and have fun in the snow for Nancy, Natalie, and myself. By the way I am thinking of taking up biking this year.
