Don't Touch My Junk et al

What some SBC state conventions are saying to the GCRTF: “Don’t touch my junk”, the new anthem of the modern man (Krauthammer), although in SBC life protecting your revenue stream is nothing new.

Patsy of patsies: Nearby Georgia State University is in its inaugural year of college football, the in-town Atlanta school never having had a football team until now. They agree to a game with powerhouse Alabama for a few hundred thousand dollars and get slaughtered 62-7, Alabama being merciful. It’s all about the money, of course.

Big science news: Scientists have trapped an “anti-atom” and have been able to study the elusive particle…for about 1/10th of a second. Wonder what they learned? Most SBC pastors need only about that amount of time to form not one but several opinions about any subject.

Our fair city has a new business, a tattoo parlor, the first such establishment locally. I don’t get it about tattoos.

One in five Americans, and almost one of every four women, had some form of mental illness last year, so sez one interest group. While the diagnoses can be extremely fuzzy, I wouldn’t challenge the figures. Johnny Hunt acknowledged depression and anxiety among other things after returning from 11 weeks off. Good for him. Sadly, most SBC pastors would receive an unlimited amount of weeks off if they broke the taboo of acknowledging some form of mental illness.

A family in St. Petersburg, FL is already camping out in front of a store to get Black Friday deals…that’s nine days early. Get a life.

Lamar Wadsworth had a kind word about Bryant Wright at State Convention Roundup at SBC Trends of
And he shared some concerns about Druid Hills as well.
I think it was a mistake for Bill Curry to schedule Bama, but I admire his Moxie. John Pierce did a good job in his recent Baps Today interview of Curry.
And Curry did a fantastic job on Kenny Chesney's Boys of Fall.
Leroy Jordan and Bear Bryant Jr. showed their derrierre when they moved Curry out at Bama.

No comment on women and mental illness, not today.
