I was reading on a site about the graves of famous people, and I came across this, which has to be the weirdest thing I've ever read:

In January of 897, in what was called the Cadaver Synod the corpse of
Pope Formosus was dragged from his tomb on the orders of Pope Stephen
VII. The body was placed on trial on charges of perjury, coveting the
Papal office, and violating church laws. A number of local clergy were
compelled to watch under the threat of violence as Stephen screamed at
Formosus. The synod found Formosus guilty. His vestments were stripped
from his body, three fingers of his right hand were chopped off, and
he was buried in a pauper's grave. A few days later his body was
exhumed and tossed in the Tiber. Stephen was deposed and eventually
strangled in prison. Formosus was recovered, and reburied in his
original tomb at St. Peter's Basilica. Later Popes reversed the
verdict of the Cadaver Synod, declared his ordinations valid, and
forbade any further such trials.

Truly Strange!

An Amazing Rescue!

It was a total stroke of luck that those 2 boys in Missouri were rescued last week! You gotta tip your hats to the cops who investigated the kidnappings. Not only did they find the boy who disappeared last week, but they also found another who had been kidnapped by the same slimeball almost 5 years ago! That guy must have did same major brainwashing to keep the one boy for that long. Let's just hope that he can adjust to being back with his family after all the years, and hope that the jerk who took him gets prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!

The Iron Man Gets His Due

Congrats to Cal Ripken Jr., formerly of my Baltimore Orioles, who today was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on the First Ballot in his first year of eligibility! His games played record may never be broke. Although he didn't always have flashy stats, he came to play every day for close to 20 years.

Virgil, you're no Goode!

It appalls me to see how dumb some of our politicians are! Take for instance, Rep. Virgil Goode, a Republican from my home state of Virginia. He is putting up a fuss that Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, will be taking his Oath of office on the Quoran. Mr. Goode says that this is a result of tolerance towards Muslims, and that it's an example of why we need immgration reforms. Virgil, before you stick your foot in your mouth any further, let me point a couple of things out to you:

1: Mr. Ellison was born and raised in Detroit, and converted to Islam in college.
2: As a 6 term member of Congress, youshould know that taking the oath on a book weather it be the Bible, Quoran, Torah, or whatever, is just a photo op, the official oath is taken en mass, on the floor of the house.

3: Have you not read the First Amendment to the Constitution that you swear to defend?

4: You are an embarrassment to both me and the rest of the State of Virginia!
