Oh dear. As is a habit I find hard to resist, I posted the following image to Facebook the other day. To which my nephew, the minister, couldn’t resist going off on a rant about.

I’ve mentioned, here and on other blogs, that I keep a Facebook account as a way to “loosely” stay in touch with family. I’ve also mentioned that I think one of the reasons for Facebook’s success is its ability to provide the “feel” of real social interaction without the messy “physical” components of real interaction…
I had originally planned to post something sick and twisted as a protest to the ongoing madness of our situation in the Middle East. It’s been far too long since I’ve spoken out, and the ever increasing lunacy is really feeding into my inner darkness. And you know that kind of darkness just has to…
