Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmm

Item 1: This week’s Time magazine, an advertisement for Crash, "a Starz original series"

“In this city, you’re either a roadblock or a shortcut. And if you’re not using someone, then someone’s using you. In L.A. there are no accidents.”

What a grim place (if that were, in fact, true) !

And what a wonderful credo for free market fundamentalism!

Item 2: Seen on a bumper sticker:

I Support the Separation of Church and Hate.


The Rev. Harry Scott Coverston, J.D., Ph.D.

Member, Florida Bar (inactive status)
Priest, Episcopal Church (Dio. of El Camino Real, CA)
Instructor: Humanities, Religion, Philosophy of Law
University of Central Florida, Orlando

If the unexamined life is not worth living, surely an unexamined belief system, be it religious or political, is not worth holding.

Most things of value do not lend themselves to production in sound bytes.
