Never pass up a chance to sit down or relieve yourself.

This blog will be moving from Blogger to WordPress in a little while. Within a month, more or less. Google bought Blogger a few years ago and the service has gone downhill ever since. Maybe someday they will wake up and support the program again.
Apps sometimes just vanish, never to be seen again. Sometimes they restore the lost functionality, but they usually don't. And the old adage is true: you get what you pay for. Blogger is a free platform; WordPress is not.
We are lucky enough to be living in a country that not only guarantees the freedom to practice religion as we see fit, but also freedom FROM religious zealots who would persecute and prosecute and even physically harm those of us who do not believe as they do ... If you refuse to salute the flag and say God in your pledge, you're actually judged un-American. But that's not the way America is supposed to be. That's the way Iran is ... Predicating patriotism on a citizen's belief in God is as anti-American as judging him on the color of his skin. It is wrong. It is useless. It is unconstitutional.
