Oh God, Book II


Lest I be mistaken for a booster of religion-drenched politics, let me register precisely how creeped out I am by Dick "Elwood" Cheney's Christmas card. The centerpiece is a quotation from Benjamin Franklin:

And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?

Not especially freaky in the original conext, but disturbing as all get-out on the Cheney family stationery.
