"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Hurricane Preparations

Odds are, you need to be from Texas, or appreciate that peculiar form of humor known as the "Aggie Joke," to get this.

But I am assured it is an unretouched photo of the bookstore at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, readied for the hurricane last week that wasn't.

And the fact it wasn't, isn't the joke.

UPDATE: I have been advised that this is, in fact, the "off-campus" bookstore at TAMU.

Obviously the proprietors are graduates of the University's fine School College of Architecture.
