News and Notes – 5/8/2007

Man throws pie at preacher. Last week it was peanuts – this week it’s a pie. A man was arrested in Colorado Springs on Sunday for disrupting a worship service by throwing a pie at the pastor while he was preaching. The pastor was preaching on the subject of loving your enemies.

Extreme population control. Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, calls human beings a virus and recommends dropping the planet’s human population to fewer than one billion. Says Watson, “A virus kills its host and that is exactly what we are doing … We are killing our host the planet Earth.” So, who gets to stay, and who has to go? This is nuts.

Friendship fries. Remember the campaign back in 2003 to start calling French Fries, “Freedom Fries,” in protest of France’s refusal to help with the war against Iraq? Now that France has elected pro-American president, Nicolas Sarkozy, a new campaign has started to rename French Fries, “Friendship Fries.” I’ll just have a burger and fries with that please.

    Gives me an idea…… 🙂

    Hmmmm, looks like I might want to wear the old raincoat and galoshes to church on Sunday.

  3. Barrie says:

    It might be a good idea to put in writing what is your favorite pie. Being that I am not a preacher, I guess it would be safe to say that I really like a good Pecan pie.

  4. Ray Fowler says:

    Blueberry pie – freshly made, hot out of the oven, made with wild Maine blueberries, topped with Breyers real vanilla bean ice cream, along with an ice cold bottle of IBC root beer. It doesn’t get much better than that.

    Of course I would prefer to eat it than wear it if that could possibly be arranged.

    Loved reading the “pie” comments! As we live in Maine, I will try to supply you with your dream pie, next time you visit! (Definitely for you to eat, not to wear!) We are blessed to have wild blueberries growing in abundance, just five minutes walk from our house. We love Maine!
