'HTML Bible' Book Burning Cancelled

To everyone:

Just to let you know... I have changed my mind and I will NOT be burning a copy of the HTML Bible on national TV in front of our church tomorrow at 6pm. :) Instead, I will be in New York meeting with a leader of the W3 organization regarding their promise to REMOVE certain stupid, silly taglines from use in HTML altogether.

(sigh!) Kidding aside, I think I've heard about enough of the Reverend Jones guy from the Dove Outreach Church.

Unfortunately for us, we live within a mile from the church location. And it's VERY odd watching jets which used to fly over our house now diverted from their incoming flight paths so that they no longer fly over the airspace of the church. It's not normal to watch small jets make hard left turns into the airport such that their wings actually turn nearly straight up/down. And yet, it's not normal to see helicopters flying over the area repeatedly, all day, knowing that they're probably law enforcement-related.

The City at least HAS made it public that they do intend to actually bill this guy and his church for all of the extra security that this is costing them. I would hope that the County, the State, and the federal government would also do same.

This is definitely the dumbest thing I have ever seen occur here in Gainesville. :o( The second dumbest was watching what the local ham radio operators did to me a few years ago. :o(

Between Bundy, and Rollings, and the "Gainesville Student Murders"', Gainesville already has enough of a bad rap. We don't need any more stupidity to make the rest of the world feel assured that ALL we breed are stupid people. That being said, in all cases, the people who affected us were always people who CAME here from somewhere else, and then they stalked us. For Gainesvillians, it was Bundy and Rollings. For me personally, it was Capehart, Tipton, Leiberman, West, and the Royces. (...ALL of mine were ham radio operators - a scary breed of itself.)

What IS is with Gainesville attracting weird people like that, though? :(

(thinking) In times that are tough like this, it's easy to get angry, and to hate, and to want to do things irrational.

Kahlil Gibron once said, "I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers."

He also said...

"An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind."

I believe that to be true.
