God, she *be* looking over you. So remember – a big, Black lesbian has “got your back.” In the words of my friend LeMay (another member of the God as BBL Church), “Don’t make me come down there!’)

Jim Wallis: There he goes again – this time Rev. Falwell compares Sen. Clinton to Lucifer
The nation is weary of the vitriolic and divisive political rhetoric that still comes from some on the Religious Right. In particular, the country is tired, truly tired, of Rev. Jerry Falwell. At the Religious Right’s Values Voter Summit, Rev. Falwell said that Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency would energize the Right’s base more than Lucifer. This is also the man who said the terrorist attacks on 9/11 were God’s judgment on America and he specifically blamed feminists, homosexuals and the ACLU. Agreement or disagreement with Senator Clinton’s politics is not the issue. Personally demonizing public figures is the issue. Such political poison isn’t just bad for the Body Politic and the more civil discourse we so desperately need. It also simply isn’t Christian.?
Can I just vent a little here?
Ahhhh That’s better…. Thank you.
We are all brothers and sisters, if not in the same faith, then in the same world. All but the most recalcitrant who have embraced evil as a way of life deserve respect. I do not appreciate, nor do I have any particular fondness for G Bush, but he is a human being and our President. He deserves the respect any human being would deserve. Unles he is one of the recalcitrant who have embraced evil as a way of life – but I seriously doubt that, secret prisons and sexual torture of enemy combatants notwithstanding.
OK, so this is the “State” part of FugueStateKnits. OH well.
vivid. The client is doing well, so it was a
pleasant trip. You can see from the remaining pictures how flat the Eastern Shore really is – in fact the only area of hills seemed to be around Cambridge, halfway between Easton and Salisbury!
Last night I got very little knitting done, but did join in on the Mason-Dixon KAL – a terrific group and a very interesting book that make knitting look so easy – yeah right!
Today as soon as Ruby’s Mommy comes to get her after her training session, we’ll probably do lunch and then I’m headed for visits, 1st meeting of Prayer Shaw Ministry and EFM this evening. Then home to prep for tomorrow and Friday’s hearings.
If you read my ravings about the brief I worked on with LawyerMd, just a quick note of interest: In my e-mail box yesterday was a “BizQuote” that, wonder of wonders was from Dr. Seuss himself and I thought I’d end this entry with that quote:
That’s why my belief is the briefer the brief is, the greater the sigh of the reader’s relief is. Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904-1991) American writer and illustrator
Hi – I’m Joan and new to this blog – have already done 1 M-D knitting project – the ever famous ballband warshrag. It was easy and turned out rather well. Will post a pic when I’m able – Am now working on a log cabin afghan -and what a lot of fun it is turning out to be! Here’s how it’s looking so far (please excuse the quality of the photo). I’m enjoying the process as there’s very little counting that needs to be done – other than rows. If anyone has suggestions for additional colors, I’m all ears!
On my way to work, but will post later. Thanks, Cristina and hope to see everyone’s work. It’s a terrific book and the projects are real things we can all use:)
Have a terrific day, everyone:)
