Today's links


  1. Re: playas vs. sluts

    If true, then the human race is doomed.

  2. Without the Cross, of course the human race is doomed. But we knew that until we stopped taking Genesis seriously.

    Shame Walt's look had to go as I'm sure they're not going to retain the original setup after such an extensive renovation (perhaps 'rebuilding' would better describe it since by the looks of the photos it's been taken down to bare-bones structure).
    My hope is that they will also trash the schlocky and contrived pseudo-fifties plastic Coke decorations they added in recent years to give it a retro look (!?). Only figurines of a leather jacketed Henry Winkler on the curio shelves or a poster of bobby soxer in a poodle skirt at a malt shop with her guy could have looked worse.

    Only the real stuff from the immediate post WWII era passes. It can't be copied or improved on, as in the case of Walt's "embellishment". And when it's gone, it's gone for good.

    I stepped into "Nifty Fifties" only once, almost 20 years ago. I asked about the strings of tiny plastic Union Jacks that decorated the place. The kid serving the counter as a soda jerk told me it was the for the current theme which was celebrating the British invasion.

    I never went back.

    You are very kind, sir, to keep linking to me despite that first time when all the ladies got their panties in a twist.

    @ Flambeaux
    Yes, we must read Genesis, but also Deuteronomy 22:13-29 and Ephesians 5:22-33. Our God took the sins of the playas and sluts very seriously. Christians today? Meh, not so much.
