Your statement about North Puget sound being as large as New England is silly. The square area of the state of Washington is 71,300 sq miles. The square area of all of New England is 71,991 sq miles. Being that the ENTIRE state of Washington is not even as large as the entire square area of New England, therefore, North Puget sound cannot be as large as New England.

Pedantry is awesome!

A follow up. I just received an email from Oak Harbor. I will be giving the invocation on Feb. 4th at 6 PM.


Can you post links to your bumper and theme music? The original is cool, but I’d REALLY like to be able to hear all of the polka and theramin versions.




With regard to Peter Popov and other “faith healers”, they often display all the crutches, walkers and other equipment of that type of the people they have “helped/cured” as you walk into their chapels. Notice there is not a single glass eye or prosthetic limb among them.

Also, they will often approach someone in a walker or on crutches who is semi-ambulatory and offer them a wheelchair, so it will seem more miraculous when they later stand and walk.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
