Quote of the Moment

News from the home town, actually:

“I know God is in control,” she said. “And that in everything we’re to give thanks to Him. I don’t know why our house is sinking but there’s a reason so we’re trying to be thankful.”

Personally, I think God is just a little peeved that somebody named a suburban subdivision “Cambridge at Heritage Plantation.”

  1. Hey, my news item email engendered a blog entry. I still say this sounds like something straight out of “Carrie” (and I can’t help it you haven’t seen the movie). I also see my very eloquent assessment of the Stata center was quoted (I’m sure I’m the first to say it). Thank you for not making mention of the fact that I always fall asleep during “Connections” (there’s something about that man’s voice). So, are you coming “home” for Christmas . . . we can take a field trip to Cambridge at Heritage Plantation to see the house of doom.

  2. Perhaps I’m just an evil atheist, but I keep imagining a gas main exploding under her house right as she finishes her quote.

    *BOOM* “Well…I guess we should be thankful for that, too.”

    Good call on the subdivision name, too.

    Michael: What do you think of when you hear the word Sudden Valley?

    George Michael: Salad dressing, I think. But for some reason, I don’t want to eat it.

  3. Isaac Asimov once observed that a Christian Scientist church across the street from him installed air conditioning. This is the sect that believes they can pray away disease, but a whole church full of them can’t pray away discomfort?

    And am I the only one who is offended when some idiot says “I thank God for saving my baby” after some disaster, when God apparently didn’t see fit to save a bunch of other people’s babies?
