    Regarding the armed Bishop, I think the real question is: Will he allow his congregation to also be armed?

    After all this is a Bishop that’s also a cop.

    The “create happy memories” seem good and reasonable… except maybe for some of us hermits and introverts. But it is certainly something to think about. 🙂

    I had the same question about the armed bishop “cop,” Jim.

    The Anglican Bishop appears to be a “Pennsylvania State Constable,” which is an elected office. Anyway, here’s his Church, photo, and bio. Maybe he should have an ecumenical dialogue with this guy. Still doesn’t answer Jim’s “real question,” though.

    (For anyone who cares, and can’t keep their denominations straight, Anglican and Episcopalian aren’t especially synonymous these days.)

    Interesting, Dana. I had no idea that Episcopalian and Anglican were not longer just east and west versions of the same basic church — or that Anglican was yet another faith turning in the direction of historic orthodoxy.

    Happy memories? Upbeat friends and friendly acquaintances, for one. And doing stuff. Hunting, fishing, driving race cars. Flying spam cans. Beaucoup BS sessions with jokes and grins. My 50th birthday celebration was a 6,000 mile jaunt from Terlingua to Jasper with a lovely lady; back down the Pacific coast and home–a month-long case of the grins, with lots of photos along the way. Lordy, I could natter for hours! 😀

    Soros ain’t half as rich as I am.

    I’m amazed at how many readers thought this was just about one technology vs another, and how few thought it might have to do with keeping your face from being sold to fedgov.

    That was an interesting article about accusations being tossed about so flippantly these days. There is no risk to an accuser, and it means automatic harm to the accused, regardless of the veracity of the accusation. I don’t know why false accusers, even when caught, get away unscathed. What should be done is exactly as written in Deuteronomy 19:16-19: “If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong; Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother; so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.” Thus, Crystal Gail Mangum should have been spending years in prison, as well as Michael Nifong, after accusing three Duke LaCrosse players of rape when they knew the trio were innocent. Then Mangum would not have been free to attempt murder of her boyfriend Milton Walker a few years later, or to successfully murder another boyfriend Reginald Daye after that. If women who falsely accuse men of rape, and are caught and proven in the lie, end up spending the same amount of time in prison that they tried to have put upon the men, then we would see a lot fewer accusations. Why does the law not provide for that completely appropriate punishment of a proven false accuser?

    Doesn’t say they all have to be shared memories.

    For an introvert, even sharing memories doesn’t necessarily require leaving the hermitage. To wit: Claire’s Ongoing Continuing Home Renovation Saga.

    True, Larry, for sure. I’m not handy with a camera, for starters, and my life would be pretty boring to most folks, but I remember the incredible joy I felt when I saw my first wolf in the wild… right out my back door. He/she was so beautiful, and I could see that beauty while I appreciated how dangerous wolves really are. I’ve got a lot of other wonderful wildlife memories as well. Seeing tracks in the snow – where a mountain lion chased a deer right down my driveway… a red fox that ran across my yard one early morning… so many others.

    I hadn’t thought of it that way. 🙂

    One has to wonder if access to the NSA tools wasn’t made possible by one of Hillary’s dozen “lost” Blackberry cell phones. Or were they really ‘donated’? Anything for a buck!
