Yipes 5

When you were watching the sad circus surrounding Terri Schaivo’s last days, did you occasionally wonder who these people were that were protesting outside the hospice?

I did. Now I come to find out I was in the same small dorm as one of them in college, as pointed out in an email from fellow dormmate Cooper.

I’m not entirely surprised by the fact that she was there, since she was heavily involved in my school’s super-conservative-evangelical Christian group, but still.

There’s super-conservative-evangelical, and there’s that. It’s kind of like my super-crunchy-granola friends vs. anarchists at the WTO convention.

The captions to the photos still leave unanswered my main question about that group: Do any of these people have full-time jobs?

    To answer your question: No, they don’t have jobs. According to NPR, the people wearing red tape over their mouths live together on a communal Christian farm in New England.

    Wow, they’ve moved so far to the right that they’ve come all the way around to the left, and are living like hippies…

    What do you suppose she was listening to on those headphones? Something that favored a culture of life, I bet.

    Maybe Fischerspooner’s “Emerge (DJ Bill Frist Persistent Vegetative State Mix)?
