May as well note this article about Israli ultra-Orthodox Jews and “technology”.  I’m more amused by the line of a subset of them who object to building Settlements or even a Jewish state, something that shouldn’t be happening “until the Messiah comes about”.  Interesting take, ain’t it?

Moving into the city of Aurora, a paroled former mass killer of something called the “Ripper Gang“.  I hasten to suppose that in the current era where letting inmates out and working against “mass incarceration” is a bi-partisan, if halting, issue that people convicted of taking part in multiple murders — even if they have turned to Christ in the meantime — will be a sore spot.  We are thinking more along the lines of drug possessions and the like, aren’t we?
