And, Ron Beasley of Middle Earth Journal on dealing with his Christian family during the holidaze. I empathize Ron, I surely do - we could have traded families and had the same thing happen.

I'm more likely to say: Mom is good, mom is great, let us thank her for this food.......hallelujah, dig in! And, even more significantly, I haven't had to enter a church since I worked the 2004 election and that was where the polling place was that I ran. That didn't turn out so good.
