"It appeals to you because it's 'come as you are,'" said Chris Maddox, who attends the Cowboy Church of Ellis County. "You don't feel judged based on how you're dressed, how you talk, how you look. We're not asking somebody to be something they're not."Call me crazy, but I remember, when I was a kid, having to dress up for church: collared shirt, khakis at a minimum, no sneakers of sandals. You'd get turned away in jeans. Nowadays, people attend church in t-shirts and shorts. So what is he talking about "come as you are?" How much more lazy can church attire get? I'm thinking the dress-code for cowboy church is undershirts and sweatpants...and if they're stain-free even better, y'all!
Some Baptist leaders say their cowboy churches have grown so quickly because they offer an alternative for those who associate churches with long sermons and pressure to donate or accept Jesus as their savior.What's the point of going to mass again? My bad, I thought it was accepting God into your life through teachings, but it's hogtying calfs. Seriously, do people really need more of an incentive to attend church? If you're too lazy to go, than maybe you're not dedicated enough to go. And if someone is bored in a mass, why the need for rodeo entertainment? Again, I would think this would be distracting from the...I don't know...the religious lessons being taught?
Churchgoers wear cowboy hats and jeans, sing hymns accompanied by a country band and get baptized in horse troughs.Whooooaaa, hold up a sec. Baptisms in horse troughs? I'm sold. I'll start up my own cowboy church to see that shit!
"The search for causes is closely connected to the question of how to avoid a future depression, and so the political and policy viewpoints of scholars are mixed into the analysis of historic events eight decades ago. The even larger question is whether it was largely a failure on the part of free markets or largely a failure on the part of governments to curtail widespread bank failures, the resulting panics, and reduction in the money supply."
My sense of the entire situation was that whoever the new owner of the Cubs would be, it was in the Sox best interest for things to stay business as usual. Published TV ratings and other published measures showed that the Cubs were more popular than the Sox, yet before I even started looking at the Cubs, I knew from my discussions with people in the NBA that the Cubs and Sox were treated as equals in their business dealings. That was great for the Sox, not so good for the Cubs. I'm guessing the people in the Sox organization knew, that if I bought the team, particularly at the price point that was being suggested in the papers, there was no way I would just accept parity in future business dealings. I was going to have to try to negotiate the very best deals possible for the Cubs, even if it was at the expense of the White Sox.
Down with the White Sux!!!
I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope. It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be.First off, how hard is it to read quotes from Palin without her stupid accent running through your head? I can't not do it! Secondly, does her sentence make grammatical sense? I can't follow it and I've read it three times. I think she's saying she was scrutinized pre-election because she's of a lower class than Caroline Kennedy. I mean, no one's arguing she's lower class, but maybe the fact that Kennedy isn't a famewhore seeking attention, means she's less scrutinized? Oh, and the fact that she has chosen to do charity work for her entire adult life, which is indicative of her caring for people other than herself.
I did see that Tina Fey was named entertainer of the year and Katie Couric’s ratings have risen. And I know that a lot of people are capitalizing on, oh I don’t know, perhaps some exploiting that was done via me, my family, my administration. That’s a little bit perplexing, but it also says a great deal about our society.One of my pet peeves? When people say "I don't know," yet you know they know exactly what they're saying and/or thinking. I hate that. If Palin is so upset with Fey doing her impressions, why did she go on SNL with her? Why did she say she went as Tina Fey for Halloween? Why has she said multiple times she thought it was funny? Now that the election's over, not so funny. Katie Couric's rating went up not because she took advantage of Palin. She just happened to get lucky enough to capture this moment:
The Cubs have apparently found their left-handed bat for the middle of the order.
Switch-hitter Milton Bradley is expected in Chicago later this week to undergo a physical, and if all goes well, will sign a three-year, $30 million contract with the Cubs. Bradley, 30, led the American League in on-base percentage last year while batting .321 with 22 homers for Texas.
The Cubs have been searching for a way to break up the overload of right-handed hitters in Alfonso Soriano, Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez and Geovany Soto, and on New Year's Eve, dealt another right-handed hitter, Mark DeRosa, to the Indians.
With the addition of two switch-hitters in Bradley and Aaron Miles, acquired last week, plus lefty bats Kosuke Fukudome, Joey Gathright and Mike Fontenot, the Cubs appear to have the potential for a much more balanced lineup in '09.
This will be Bradley's seventh team and fifth in the past five seasons. He can be a force on the field but also has had run-ins with managers and fans in the past.
