Just finished reading Murray Smith's espionage novel, "Devil's Juggler". Was his first book, published in 1993. Absolutely horrifying, the story he wrote. Left me feeling as though I'd been hit with a mental baseball bat. Stunned to a full stop. A rare experience.
So finally come over here and there in my email is a piece J sent, written by Joe Bageant, entitled "Finding Jesus At the Cracker Barrel". As I read it, I realize that here is the explanation for just how fundamentalist religion seeped into the nation and began to take over and stain everything in sight with its bloody dark beliefs. Don't know where J found it. Could probably Google and find out.
That does it for me tonight. I'm hitting the sack.
