    not that that means anything to most people, unless you break out google maps.
    ok, map of the respective cities (towns/villages, etc)

    and apparently you can check out some stuff he said, since the church recorded his messages.
    i may have to peruse them

    Lady in my lab said that a gunman would never be able to get to her pastor.. they have ushers all up ins her church.

    I just thought to myself.. "What.. are they all Green Berets with some crazy Matrix bullet-dodging powers thrown in for good measure?"

    The Post-Dispatch devoted 2 pages to the shooting while 32 people blown up in Baghdad is on page A12 in a paragraph blurb. :| One of those desensitizing things that happens in the news biz I suppose.

    the closer something is to home, the more important it is, to a degree.

    Sure, there's a higher body count, but this has more drama simply due to the proximity and the surprise of the location.

    how dare you link Digg and Fark here

    how dare you

    He's introducing some light into a dark situation. You can't cry all the time, sometimes, to get through hard times, you have to laugh. Sucks but it's true.

    It's a pretty crap situation, and he decided to try and see a brighter side

    ...(even if it did mean linking digg and fark...)

    blame green eyes

    somehow he missed the fact that we were making jokes all throughout this thread and therefore found it necessary to necropost that cent supposedly needs to lighten up

    (but seriously cent, go easy on the fried foods)

    God steered the bullet towards the Bible.

    He would have for the next four but I dunno, he ran out of mana or something.
