because I’ve had constant access to multiple tvs lately, I’ve been watching quite a bit of cnn. amazing. actually, I’m not sure I’m supposed to be laughing so much when watching the news. no, I never really thought about “what jesus would REALLY do” when it comes to buying. the commercials about christian persecution in communist countries are great: “they beat my feet until I was treading in the path of my own blood.” and it was educational to see a dramatization of a gun threat over the phone. but the best is how cnn’s seasonal theme song is a threatening version of “carol of the bells.” if it ain’t entertaining, it ain’t news.
