Many apologies

I have to admit to a certain level of respect for those who blog regularly and are able to keep a daily, or nearly so, schedule of blogging. I've been wrapped up in just about everything that could wrap me up. If it wasn't work, it was the home life. If it wasn't home life, it was church life. And on and on. Here we are a couple of days away from the mid-terms and part of the goal of this blog is to relate politics to religion in an unbiased fashion so what do we see on this site? Two posts. Two. That's part of the reason I haven't actively publicized this site yet. I'm still getting my feet wet and my timing is horrible. So if you're looking for something substantive, I apologize. I'm working on it. Thankfully this blog has a life beyond just partisan politics and elections. So there will still be things to talk about after Tuesday. In fact, this subject picked up steam after the 2004 elections, so I expect the same this time around.

So if you're looking for something insightful, or witty, I'll give you a joke instead. There was once a very rich man on his death bed about to die. He had a vision of God and pleaded, "please let me bring my wealth with me! I've worked so hard to obtain it that it is all rightfully mine." God replied, "Ok, but you can only bring what you can fit in one suitcase." Grateful, the man packed his suitcase full of solid gold as it would have more value than paper money. Upon reaching the Pearly Gates, St. Peter stopped him and asked to see what was in his bag. Showing Peter the suitcase of gold, the man told him that God gave him permission to bring it with him. Peter confused said, "I believe you, but I just don't understand why you'd bring so much pavement."
