Thoughts Not Tied Down

~I've often been told that a pastor doesn't hit his/her ministerial stride in a particular setting until somewhere in years 3-6. That gives me hope as I look back almost one year in, on everything I could have done better and hope I do better next time.

~This afternoon my wife and I got into an argument (well, a discussion during which I got increasingly defensive) about legalizing and regulating drugs. She seems to think that it would eliminate a lot of the Prohibition-esque problems we're facing with substances such as cocaine, heroin, and so on. I think it's a bunch of crap. My only problem is that I can't articulate an argument much better than that right now. But I'm working on it. I can't come up with anything other than moral outrage, and logic says you need more. However, considering the act of CD bootlegging is a start, I think. People do it because prices are high, not because it's illegal. If someone can get an ounce of crack on the corner for a cheaper price than whatever the FDA would charge for it, it's still gonna happen, and probably with murder and mass organization still behind it. So I'm working on that.

~I can only respect tradition so much before I find myself bowing down at its altar.

~I've been writing a lot on here since I came back from my little break. I have to do that more often. Just a heads up: I'm thinking about giving it up as a Lenten discipline. I know, I know, stock up on supplies in your bunker now.
