Hi,

When the news reported Madalyn Murray O'Hair had won her "no school prayer" case in front of SCOTUS ('63) I recall my mother becoming livid and saying something to the effect of "It's all over now" or similar, predicting the downfall of society as we knew it coming as a result of the case.

I find it somewhat interesting that Ms. O'Hair's case began in Baltimore. I wonder how many folks who lived in B-more at the time could have believed what their City would become in the next 40-50 years. An avowed atheist, I also wonder how many times she might have changed her mind in her last moments and invoked God's help as she, her son and granddaughter were being murdered and mutilated. Just thinking of the old adage "There are no atheists in foxholes" as it might apply in this scenario.

The people who used those drugs weren't gun owners. I'm thinking of all these "medications" that are touted as such quick and easy solutions to serious problems.

I saw something the other day that said that the problem isn't guns. The problem is men love darkness more than light.

I am aware of what it came from. I didn't see it there the other day though Bob. It does sum up the problem pretty well though.
