Famous Evangelist Shows Early Signs of Dementia
In an effort to prove he should had retired from preaching years ago, iconic evangelist, Billy Graham, continued to bring shame upon the gospel ministry by starting his farewell revival tour in New York City with inviting former President, Bill Clinton, and his adoring wife, Hillary, to share their testimonies. During the brief time, President Clinton reminisced about being a poor white boy from Hope, AR, who overcame countless odds to make the hour long trek to Little Rock to hear Rev. Graham preach. Rev. Graham ended the time by anointing Hillary as president elect for 2008.
We can only hope this farewell tour by Rev. Graham won't turn into one of those perpetual farewell tours put on yearly by the likes of the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, and KISS.

Movie Director, Steven Spielberg, Ponders Reasons for Decrease in UFO Sightings; Alien Encounters
While his new movie, War of the Worlds, opens with mixed reviews and marginal first week success, the blockbuster making director explains being baffled by the decrease in ET - human encounters. Mr. Spielberg stated that we live in a technological society with nearly every person able to access digital photography and the Internet. "You'd think there would be pictures of something," exclaimed the director.
Some possible reasons for a decrease in UFO sightings:
- The Aliens have become increasingly embarrassed by Tom Cruise.
- They don't care too much for that weirdo Art Bell and his gang of listeners.
- They have reached the limits of what they can learn from rectal probing
- They never existed in the first place, and only live in the fertile imaginations of a sci-fi culture driven by a hatred for their divine creator and who intentional believe life giving evolution can happen between inanimate, non-living matter and complex biological life.
Civil War Historian Dies.
Shelby Foote, the Memphis native historian who added personal character to the epic Ken Burn's documentary on the Civil War, died earlier this week. On top of providing one of the best 3 volume narratives to the Civil War, Foote made the PBS documentary come alive. He spoke as if he had truly been there as an eye witness. My favorite moment from the entire series is his re-telling the time he met a distant relative of the great, white trash general, Nathan Bedford Forrest who let him swing around his battle sword.
