So Cigarette Smoking Panhandlers Don't Deserve Some Help?

I was fascinated by a blog of sorts whereby the blogger pretty much lambasted a woman he saw as she was begging for money while smoking a cig.

Tenebrae – Service of Shadows

I had never experienced this before, a service of shadows. It is a service performed in remembrance of Jesus’ crucifixion.

That thought popped into my head today while shopping in the local very crowded, extremely busy, ultra huge monster grocery store.

Sell YOUR Atheist Soul on Ebay and Make MONEY!

Do YOU Ever Think These Thoughts?

Before hopping over to Blogit, I was reading through the online obituaries of my local paper, something I remember to do about three days/week.
