Jerry Falwell Dead

Jerry Falwell, the firebrand Evangelical, was found dead in his office today. Pardon me if I don't cry.

This is the guy who claimed that 911 was caused by 'gays, lesbians, feminists and liberals'. Guess which party he was registered under? He's also the one who warned "look out Orlando, God is sending a Hurricane your way' because Disney was having 'Gay Days' at the Park. I thought Christianity was about loving, forgiveness and coming together, not about finger pointing rabble rosuing. I wonder who'll be giving the eulogy at his service - Ann Coulter?

Thank God he isn't a Catholic. He can't be canonized by the Pope.

So, along with Tony Blair, George Bush loses another ally all in the span of a week.

Another sign the Bush Era is ending before he does - '24' is also coming apart at the seams. Two more weeks and this painful season comes to a close.

There is the website Fark.com which is basically a forum driven website where people submit news stories with their own headlines and then people comment on them.
It's mostly humor but there are plenty of arguments about things.
There were about 10 threads about Falwell's death that each amassed 500-1000 comments a piece. Your typical story gets about 40, your controversial stories get between 100-250.
I didn't read any of them, but I always thought Falwell was an idiot.
