I think the fact that the despicable Westboro congregation is allowed to do what they do, is one of the major things that separates us from other countries. It wouldn't make me feel sad at all if the Westboro group was rounded up and systematically executed. I say that to make it clear I stand against them with every fiber of my being.

But think of what would happen if the Supreme Court silenced this group. Who knows who the next group to be silenced would be, using that Supreme Court decision as justification. Maybe the next ones are a Tea Party group protesting at an Occupy Wall Street gathering. It's best to allow freedom of assembly and freedom of speech, even at the cost of allowing these Westboro thugs to anger people like they do.

I heard that Robin Williams' daughter was tweeted over and over by horrible people photo-shopping pictures of him hanging from a rope. What is wrong with people? Such brazen, unmitigated evil is so prevalent in society today. Were so many people decades ago, just as twisted but stayed in the shadows because they didn't have an outlet like Twitter and the internet? Or is evil growing. Stuff like these twitter people is no different to me than sociopaths who set cats on fire.

There's nothing in the constitution that prohibits them to do this crap. If you don't agree, then we need to amend it to prohibit purposeful desecration at funerals.

But if they ever got within shouting distance with a funeral I attend, they are in for it. It would be over for them.

A rather noncommittal answer... wouldn't you say?

I'm glad you're doing ok. I was actually a little worried about you.

I've been thinking about you off and on for about a month now. Are you ok?

My marriage is stronger than ever, I just got a new used car, I have published a poem, and I may be a bit closer to an idea regarding a TOE.

Yes, doing fine. My wife and I finally got ourselves a house after years of squaring away finances and saving. We are having fun improving it and making it our perfect home.

Fantastic! Susie? Really? I think that is just great!!!!! I'm very happy for you. And the poem, it's about time you got published. You've got serious talent! What is TOE?
