Record floods, well 2' higher than record... We're still high and dry in our home, and have helped where we could, just a little stranded and unable to get to work.

My mind boggles at the damage and economic impact (micro & macro) of this calamity... :(

Pardon my levity in the face of ruin, but... ~shrugs~

Hope my affected pluskatonians are coping okay.

I really love when vocal Christians scream down statements of tolerance because "the Quran is filled with violence"...
Hellooooo. Bible much?

I just told someone who insisted the bible has no violence in it to take this quiz: http://www.alternet.org/30-most-violent-exhortations-bible-torah-and-quran
I typically ignore them, but, I hate when they repeat outright lies and no one calls them out on it.
Can't wait for the fallout.

~sighs~ they basically said it doesn't count in the bible because Jesus didn't say it. I was also told to examine my motives, whether I'm lifting others up or putting them down.

And yes, it was all said without the merest hint of irony.

All hail the no true Scotsman!

In fairness, on a nine day trip through the desert, seven of which were spent sunburnt, I think I'd have bigger things on my mind than coming up with a name for my horse.
