A study in contrasts

The front page headline in our local paper the other day reminded me why we moved from the city to the country. It read:

Pony, cow killed in drive-by shootings

While I do feel appropriately sorry for the random killing of innocent animals, it is quite a contrast from the type of drive-by shootings we used to hear about when I lived in the city.

So, paying over 2 dollars a gallon for gas and driving sometimes 2 hours to work is looking more and more worth it.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
