  1. Religious insanity is still running deep in America and abroad. Sure am glad I am old.

    1. Jono -- Fortunately, many more people are rejecting religious insanity, which makes me hopeful about the future.

  2. I read about the Idaho Falls man. Sad sad story! Right in my backyard...
    Also- I thought this was VERY interesting. http://www.localnews8.com/news/boy-scout-council-buys-former-melaleuca-building/34170856
    The Boy Scouts bought the old melaleuca building, owned by FrankVandersloot who is very LDS, before the vote lifting the ban on gay adults. I'm wondering what will happen now...

    1. Heather -- Until there is statute of limitations reform, childhood abuse victims will have to be creative in their pursuit of justice.

      From what I'm hearing, the LDS was not amused by the Boy Scout's decision. We'll see what happens.
