George Will: still America's sexiest bowtie wearer 

George Will can piss me off from time to time, but he is thoughtful and frequently makes some good points. In today's column, he says something that I have been trying to argue to my parents for months: Christians ARE NOT persecuted in this country.

"[Christians'] persecution complex is unbecoming because it is unrealistic".

Some honesty about this would be nice. I think that if modern Christians were to simply study what life was like under Emperor Nero, they would realize how good they have it. No Lions. No Crucifictions. No being covered in pitch, put on a stake, and set on fire to light a garden party. Living in a state that will only sanction and pay for some religious activities is not the same thing. This whore of babylon is drunk on different blood.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
