  • I received an email from a reader of mine who doesn’t like “my brand of religion” and who said, “If there is a God, and he is a loving, merciful one, how could he possibly want you [me] as his spokesperson?”
    The reader claims I am selling sin and damnation and says I am depressing others. I would like to address all of these concerns.
    I do not consider myself to have a brand of religion, even though I am Baptist. I consider the Bible to be the inspired word of God and it is all I rely on to write my column.

    Before he knew what was happening, a skunk ran out from under Dale’s feet, took a foot-hold about 10 feet away and atomized him from head to foot with a poor man’s Chanel No. 5.
    The anesthetized hunter, his enthusiasm watered down considerably, peeled off and discarded his clothes, took his watch, billfold and gun and headed back to the car and home for a soapcloroxspicnspanmrclean bath.
