The Smithsonian, National Parks, The National Mall, the Panda Cam, are all shut down today. How do you close the Grand Canyon? I can see locking the doors at the Smithson Castle but just how are they going to close the Mall? I understand how they can turn off the Panda Cam but how do they propose to close grass? The Vietnam Memorial? Hmph. Anyone out there in DC? One of my all time favorite citys ever (I lived there for a few years) How’s the traffic? And NASA. Granted, NASA hasn’t had a lot to do since this administration took over but I have a hard time equating the two. Maybe it’s just me. I guess it’s OK though because the ACA website is up……. Send every damn one of them home. We can not only do better we deserve better. Two words. Term Limits. Send ‘em home.

The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers. Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband, Phil, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed.. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him." You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagine the pain that poor Phil must have experienced. "Phil was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him terrible pain." We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Phil's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold it in place." Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Phil. "Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Phil is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely." All the men sighed with unified relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say.
A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium.
He said, "I'm Phil." The entire congregation held its breath. "I just want to tell my wife the word is sternum."
