A Quickie

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," taking steps to usher in Armageddon by supporting Barack Obama! Yes, apparently he's the Antichrist (see post below).

But just remember, re Armageddon. When the busy god clears out his praise and worship team, it'll be a greener, less crowded globe for the rest of us. And so many empty churches to put to good uses we won't be able to think of enough uses! So bring it on, Barack.

We at "The Gods Are Bored" will be off the air for a few days, preparing a graduation party for daughters The Heir and The Spare. The Heir is graduating high school, National Honor Society, National Art Honor Society. The Spare is limping out of Middle School with grades barely intact. But who among us, I ask you, did better than limp out of Middle School with grades barely intact?

I've got to go clean my house. The cats, Alpha and Beta, won't do it. Nor will Decibel the Parrot. Mr. Johnson says he'll help, but talk is cheap. I'm sure Heir and Spare will pitch in, but not until the 11th hour, and I'm a control freak. Gotta do it now.

If you're looking for a good read in my absence, click on Will Bunch in my sidebar, and scroll down to his post on how Rush Limbaugh called him a Stalinist. Will's blog is a hoot, because he posts the most reasonable stuff, and then every troll from the Hall of the Mountain King leaves comments that curl your hair.

See you Sunday! Or, if you're in the neighborhood Saturday, drop by for a hoagie and a piece of cake. And make that graduation check payable to Heir Johnson. She's off to college in the fall.

Congrats to the heir, the spare, and to you Anne for shepherding them along. I've read Will Bunch's column a few times before, and he's one of the good ones. Any time you're on Rush "the pill junkie" Limbaugh's bad side, you know you're doing okay.
