Smith enters rehab, therapy

Monday, December 17th, 2007

An ailing Rev. Smith checked himself into rehab this week, and scheduled regular meetings with a therapist after finding himself unable to continue working at the computer without moderate pain and chronic wrist soreness. “I’m at the end of my rope,” stated a melodramatic Smith, “I have hit rock bottom.” Smith has been diagnosed by his primary care physician with Repetitive Strain Injury and will be taking several weeks off from The Brick Testament to attend physical therapy at a local hand rehabilitation clinic. Smith says he is “on the road to recovery”, and says to expect new illustrated Bible stories in January 2008.

Crack open a can of eggnog and get your ass in the holiday spirit, the hard way.

Americans no longer shocked by mass shootings

Monday, December 10th, 2007

The two mass shootings this week at a Nebraska shopping mall and a Colorado church caused terrible grief and confusion for those directly affected, but failed to trigger a sense of shock and dismay among the American public. Experts believe the regularity of such tragedies has caused a collective numbing. “It’s like the way most Americans today feel nothing as they read in the local newspaper about fatal car accidents from the previous 24 hours,” says psychologist Mort Donovan. “People now are more surprised if six months pass without a young middle class American male shooting a semi-random selection of 5 to 25 people.”
