"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

And in other news.....

Local control, ironically, means the locals decide who controls.
And that doesn't mean people from Arizona decide for people in Oregon.

I had a lot of elaboration around this.  Then I decided this entire story comes down to this picture,  posted to Twitter by an Oregon reporter.



That's the "supply room" for Bundy & Co.  To fully appreciate it, you need to know what Bundy says about this "siege."

"The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds," Ammon Bundy said.
"We're planning on staying here for years, absolutely," he added. "This is not a decision we've made at the last minute."

I'm guessin' somebody's planning to go into town for supplies before the week is over.

This isn't sedition; this is just silly.
