commented on Two Nights Ago, My Dead Mother Came to Me in a Dream
Charles, this was great.
I'm glad you get to see your mother sometimes, even though it is confusing. Her visit comes just days after the anniversary of her death, so I can only assume she's been on your mind. Your waking thoughts have summoned her into existence in the dream world. By waking hours we are limited to the constraints of reality; the hours in which we sleep know no boundaries, and it is there we can be flying creatures, creatures who can breath under water, or even necromancers.

commented on Want to Protect Police Officers? Close Gun Sale Loopholes, Group Says
@1 Agreed. Hearing that shit from someone with real pull when it comes to policing policies makes me shudder.
"Rapists are going to commit rape anyway, so why even bother trying to stop them or enforce existing laws?"
"People are going to rob stores anyway, why even use a safe?"
"People are going to break into houses anyway, why even use locks or security systems?"
Gee, I don't know, Ron Smith, you useless cunt, maybe because we need to use every reasonable tool at our disposal, and if there's evidence to suggest that background checks will prevent SOME crime, then we should fucking do it.

commented on RIP, Slogger Rhett Oracle
This is really sad. I also never met Fred. But I do recall reading his witty and and sometimes embarrassing-dad-like comments.
It's easy to forget that the people posting on here are regular people in our community. And that their sudden departure from their online presence isn't always a lack of caring about posting anymore; that they can become sick, move away, or even pass away.
I make very few contributions to SLOG, but I read almost everything posted, every day, including the comments. RIP Fred. Thank you Dominic, for posting this.

commented on The Morning News: Mars Hill Church Is Shrinking, But Boeing Is Growing
The 100 Worst White men originally had a description about an editor quitting. When I came back to question the connection it had been edited. What's up with the editor quitting story? Is it juicy?
Also, glad to see The Morning News return. It was a sad, boring weekend without it. Who dropped the ball?

commented on Youth Pastor Watch: A Den of Wolves
SB is starting to sound more and more like Gollum.
I guess years of being a cave-dwelling troglodyte take their toll on the psyche. It must be lonely and painful in the dark cave of ignorance and hate that *it* crawled into.
