When Hell Freezes Over

To all the baseball fans who have asked me if this Cubs fan will root for the cross-town rival White Sox in the World Series, the answer is "of course not!" (This article says it all).

Go Astros (I guess).

Yeah, that's what I really believe too

"(The) impotence of 'systems' is a main reason why Jesus did not send his students out to start governments or even churches as we know them today, which always strongly convey some elements of a human system. They were, instead, to establish beachheads of his person, word, and power in the midst of a failing humanity. They were to bring the presence of the kingdom and its King into every corner of human life simply by fully living in the kingdom with him." -- Dallas Willard

it's like a good midwestern snowstorm when it rains here in vegas. streets get shut down and washed out, people drive their cars into disastrous situations, businesses close down (rebekah was turned away from the grocery store today because the power was out), and the television weathermen go into full disaster reporting mode. reminds me of childhood blizzards back in the heartland.
