As the Good Lord says, "Give a little, get a whole lot more back!"

EasternPA, I'm still working on an SBA loan to start my healing ministry. I decided that if I can't whoop 'em, I'll join 'em. I'll stand behind the curtain of OZ and trick the common people just like the rest of the ministers do.

Rev. Crow,

I hereby apply for Bishop of the Diocese of Eastern PA of the Church of Holier Healers. Please let me know how I can remit my $19.95. I don't want to loose out on this limited time offer.

I've got to go out to the country today. I am invited out by a group of grits eating hillbillys to heal a child of scrofulous. What the child needs is a good scrubbing with medicated soap in the baptismal tank and a visit to the doctor, but the crowd will expect me to pray over him and cause him to faint from the intoxication of the Holy Spirit. The hillbillys consider soap and doctors to be man's science and evil. You don't need a doctor if you have the Spirit.

The hillbillys don't care where I went to minister school but I do have to swear that I don't watch PBS. By swear I mean to swear on the Bible.

Yes, the CRT does allow Romney to "take advantage of the tax exempt status" of the church, but when the trust was set up, the 8% payout might have been expected to leave the church with a chunk of principal at Romney's death.

Most charities are very happy to be part of a CRT.

Have a great time voting today, everyone. Vote early, vote often!

Whoever wins, congratulations to us on another nonviolent transfer of power.

It's rainy and a little chilly down here; sort of a miserable day. I think a lot of people have voted early so hopefully the lines at the polls won't be too intolerable. From what I am seeing from the polls I think the national election is going to be a squeaker, but you never know.

Hopefully my girl Jill will bring it home.
