The Soonerdaughter is off her liquid diet as of yesterday! She’s so pleased. And today, we are…fitting her for braces.
Now that the Satanist temple in New York is pushing hard–they raised $20,000 in five days–to put their monument on the state Capitol grounds near the ten commandments monument, other groups, some of them actual religions, like a Hindu group, have submitted designs to the state for their proposed monuments. I’m designing a monument to Bill-and-Tedism, myself. It will be a phone booth with the inscriptions “Be excellent to each other” and “party on, dudes” on the base. Demands to remove the ten commandments are coming from some interesting quarters, as well. A VERY devout friend of mine has been calling the offices of his state Senator and Assemblyman and the Governor to register his displeasure. Since it’s been pointed out that the state is going to spend a lot of money to lose in court and have to remove it anyway, a lot of people are asking that it be removed. Of course, this being Oklahoma, more people are demanding that the state fight this thing. I’m buying extra popcorn.
