Temperamental Tuesday

Some people reach the top of the ladder of success only to find it is leaning against the wrong wall.

The thing that bugs me about some Evangelical Christians is when they think if you aren’t living as righteously as they are, you aren’t much of a Christian. Isn’t that what is called living self-righteously? Isn’t it written somewhere that my Christianity is between me and God, not me and some foolish man on Earth with the opinion he was ordained to judge others?

A thinly disguised “Mr. Smithy” decided to take exception to this blog, claiming to be “shocked” by its content. Poor thing; empty life, small mind. And that’s all I have to say about that.

I hate nosey forms. That’s why when completing one recently I listed my occupation as “Male Stripper.” I thought it might help explain what I reported for annual income - $25.

The vast amount of news coverage and intense public interest in the Anna Nicole Smith death is a sad testimony about our values and intellect these days. It also causes me to think one should have to pass a test on the U.S. Constitution, American History and Economics before being handed a voter registration card.

We don’t all have to agree, we don’t even have to get along. But we all should leave one another alone.

The unfortunate thing about grandiosity is the grandiose too often believe their own tales even after they have gone far beyond the point of believability and verification. How do you spot these people? Easy – look for those who are estranged from the people who know them best.

So, we'll have to visit the B&N here in Macon and move that book up to #77 at least! BTW, did you see my comment following L-----'s sperm donor's comment on the AJC blog? Good work, Greg. Greetings to your valentine too; me and mine are doing swell.
Your old Mercer bud,
