Alma 32

I just thought I'd toot Jenny's horn and bring to everyone's attention one of her new projects. She is participating in an e-seminar with several other mormon academics- a few philosophy professors, a few economics, classics and various other professors and grad students. The subject of the e-seminar is Alma 32. Every week they discuss about 5 verses, and its been very interesting to follow. Here is the link.

I wouldn't have done it if I had known people would find out about it...."

So Al Franken is is running for the senate. Apparently, as a writer for Saturday Night Live, he wrote some naughty things that offend people. In response to Frankengate, as I like to call it, his campaign manager said:

"At the time he didn't realize how it would affect him later in life. He wouldn't do it again today."

Let me get this straight. Your candidate wrote offensive things several years ago, and now that he is running for office he suddenly has an epiphany and realizes that what he wrote might adversely affect voters' opinion of him, so now he regrets it? I know- all politicians try to distance themselves from previous statements, even His Holiness Saint Barack of Obama, but... wow, I've never heard one say it so bluntly: "I would have never said it had I realized I would one day run for the Senate..." I can just imagine his future press releases as a senator:

"I would have never accepted that bribe if I knew people would find out about it."

"I thought that woman was my secretary, not a female escort..."

"I would have never made fun of that retarded person if I knew he could understand what I was saying."

Lucy woke up from her nap today crying. After about 5 minutes of sobbing in mommy's arms, she stops, looks around and says "Hey! Where did the chicken go?"

I'd love to be a fly on the wall in some of those dreams of hers.
