Superfreak

Those Irish bogs are wacky things - but come on - this is surreal:

Irish archaeologists Tuesday heralded the discovery of an ancient book of psalms by a construction worker while driving the shovel of his backhoe into a bog.

OK - I can accept that. THIS defies reasoning, in light of current events:

"The book was found open to a page describing, in Latin script, Psalm 83, in which God hears complaints of other nations' attempts to wipe out the name of Israel."

Are those hoofbeats?

************UPDATE**************

Those weren't hoofbeats after all. Apparently, the numbering of the Psalms changed when King James I took it upon himself to rewrite the Bible and the book in question was open to the modern Psalm 84 which does not reference the destruction of Israel.

Whew. What a relief. I was startin'to wonder if I needed to prepare for the Rapture. Glad to know I have a few more days of drinking.

You have a great website and it is great for the community. You should join the disscusions here as well:

New Orleans community blog

Please join in the discussions there and link people back to your blog. There are already a lot of people participating daily. It is a great place to poll the communitie and see how people realy feel about the issues. This should serve to strengthen the new orleans community and NO online commlunity as a whole.

My belief is that to get real transparency in our government and in our planning process we need to get the young folks involved and up to speed on the new paradigms. Teaching only civics in school and not smart growth and new urbanism concepts is like teaching our kids to count to ten without teaching them arithmetic, algebra and calculus and then expecting them to make it in this world.

Help us get those concepts out there! Create an account on live journal and help build a community, an educated community.

Thanks,
