Every time I take note of a friend mentioning some event or activity associated with their church... mosque... synagogue...  whatever... I just wince inside. It passes quickly because I repeat the mental mantra "To each their own, and may they draw strength..." and then tell myself to remember that their "church" etc.... is just a community centre with a cute hat.
But I remain... utterly flummoxed about how so many people can so willingly turn over their minds to people so undeserving of the privilege to shape and hold.
Why do otherwise intelligent people elect to support organizations so desperately bent on domination, abuse, control and power.
And don't talk to me about faith and believing in higher things.
You can do all that without supporting the nut jobs that run the religious organizations in the world.
"But corto... just because a lot of bad people do bad things in HIS name... it doesn't have to mean HE is bad..."
"Excuse me? who the hell are you talking about? Do you hear yourself talking? Brainwashed much?"
I'll take my community association without the guilt thanks.

Ya ever notice how raw pumpkin juice can tighten up your skin?
No really? Forget botox... just drip a few drops of pumpkin juice on your wrinkles...

I bought a FX12 lumix camera...  Costco has a sixty day no-questions asked return policy so... we'll see how this goes. :)
It looks nice... feels nice... great features... relatively low price...
Now to see if it actually takes nice pictures. :)
