Somehow, I think that the Bible and all the old classic movies about the life of Jesus got it all wrong. The Gospels of Mark and Luke tell us that darkness fell over the whole land from the sixth hour to the ninth hour on Good Friday, and those wonderful 1950s film epics (case in point: Ben-Hur) often depict violent thunderstorms and rain during Jesus’ crucifixion. Nobody anywhere seems to have said anything about 8” (20 cm) of snow on Good Friday.
Thankfully, that has just come to an end here in much of southeast Michigan within the last hour or so. I spent almost two hours stuck in various places with the truck this past night, and used nearly 100 lbs. (45 kg) of salt extricating myself from those jams. Even two loads, rather than the usual three, still took me 10 hours — when I can usually get three done in somewhere between 10 and 11 hours in good weather.
This being a night in the middle of my work week, I really don’t have a ton of time to write here. However, I did want to make it known that I am collecting facts and working on a major exposé about a well-known figure in the world of “fundamentalist ‘Christian’” anti-gay bigotry. Suffice it to say for now that this exposé, when published, will forever put to rest the “fundamentalist” canard about a supposed “well-funded homosexual lobby.” I will show what kind of money these so-called “Christians” are really raking in from the donations they solicit on the pretense of “combatting the ‘homosexual agenda’,” and where those donations are going.
Until then, my friends, try to stay clear of the heavy snow here in Michigan, the flooding in the lower Midwest and Mississippi Valley, and the nasty high winds about to hit the Pacific Northwest … ah fuck it. Just go some place nice like Hawaii.
