Serves me right for not running a Google search on Hamtramck.

i guess i always thought it was Polish. Damn you, lack of fact checking skills, but hey, at least someone's reading the blog.....

....maybe from beyond the grave, but someone's reading.

Anyway, i don't normally post on a daily basis but i just finished a new read.

i highly recommend it, but typically it's a "preaching to the choir" type book. i assume most liberals read it with a little chuckle and right-wingers look for holes to punch threw the rhetoric.

For me, it also brought a sense of what initially drove me away from organized religions, other than to experience and understand cultures different from my own upbringing.

While reading the book, i kept my Bible close to verify citations and context, and well....i find myself asking the question, asked many times on the book, although i don't believe the phrase was coined by the Author...

"Who would Jesus Bomb?"

Anyway, looks like i'll be running 24 miles this week; 5 today, 5 Wed (tempo), and 14 Saturday. Temps look to be near 40 this weekend. Maybe, i'll break out the shorts??? Maybe not...

Thanks for Reading

I'm sure you'll break out the shorts if the temps hover near 40 degrees. It would be unnatural if you didn't.
