little 14 year old Timmy to read me iff he wants tewe.

said New York City street worker Jessica Pena as she swept a midtown
Manhattan street at around 8: 15 a.m. The temperature already was

places there. “It’s just carazy. … It’s Hot its rally rally HOT,
said a hobo near the interstate as she swept a downtown Las Vegas street

And perhaps the end of all things Nagpur, June 7 (Reuters) Select
edible oils today continued to rise in Vidarbha region
of Western Maharashtra on good demand from local traders amid short supply
from local crushing plants. Healthy rise in American soya digam
prices & Malaysian palm oil prices and upward trend
on Madhya Pradesh oil market also helped to push up prices.
Reported demand from South and North-based traders also helped
to push up prices, sources said Saturday. New York City
Under the Red Chief Devil This part is from the actual story.
And off I go impersonating Jesus again-and this Guardian article,
by Ian McKay I think his name was, went on and on about how
American evangelicals championed the Apocalypse
and how it even affected our politicians, every one of them
claiming to believe in this form of doomsday Christianity-
-come on, Ian, you mean to tell me most British Christians
don't believe in this rapture shit or this Armageddon tale? -
-I quit reading Ian-it became too pedantic after a while.
I mean who was Ian writing to in that article? Fellow Brits?
We Americans? Take these evangelicals's tax-free money
away from them and they will disappear overnight-
-all these goons collect buckets of free moolah-
-tax-free buckets of twenties and hundreds, all the greasy,
wrinkled, hard-earned bucks from out of the pockets of the trailer trash,
the white trash, the white hopeless, the always-present Southern blacks,
and the Asians, always the Asians are the most believing Christians
in the world-to the point a lot of them truly believe
Jesus had a brother who moved to Asia and that Jesus visited him in Japan,
I assume, I've only heard the story from some Korean women,
and that Jesus died while he was in Japan
and is buried there and the crucifixion was staged
and the empty tomb was because Jesus was in Tokyo!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
