Saturday

Quote of the Week:

"It's a shame. You take away the guys and the booze and she'd take on Saddam Hussein himself." - Deanna Allen's grandmother, defending the young soldier from charges of flashing and mud wrestling in Iraq.

For those of you who've read "Under the Banner of Heaven," Jon Krakauer's book on the history of violence and polygamy in the Mormon church, check out this little snipet from Chuck Shepherd's News of the Weird":
The renegade Mormon splinter group headed by Warren Jeffs and holed up mostly in a few small towns in Utah and Arizona was largely responsible for the collapse of the Bank of Ephraim, according to Utah regulators interviewed for a December Associated Press report. Church officials had taken a secret oath to borrow, furiously, as much money as they could, because according to Jeffs, the world was about to end anyway, and they wouldn't have to pay it back. [Associated Press, 12-6-04]
Sounds good to me!

If you haven't read "UTBOH," Warren Jeffs is basically the "king" of Colorado City, AZ and Hildale, UT, which is, in a sense, a giant polygamist between St. George and Lake Powell. Population: 10,000.

Besides ordering his citizens to borrow loads of cash, "Uncle Warren" gets to pick what you do and who you marry.
A solid plan if you have zero ability to think for yourself.

"i like it!"

More later...
