Often there are posts about the f'd up things that cops do.................

but this weekend coming back from DC, I ended up having to stay in central PA. On Saturday I picked up a newspaper,The Gazette Weekend (published continuously since 1805, One of the oldest newspapers in the US) in Bedford PA.

I read in the paper that the Bedford Police Department will drive anyone home from a Super Bowl party who has had too much to drink. All you have to do is call the Police Department and they will pick you up & take you home.

In my opinion, this is cool.

There is about 3000 people who live in Bedford.

House & Senate "chaplains" to speak at right wing event on Inauguration Day


Received this email today. It is beyond the pale, that these chaplains would appear at any event, where the intended audience is right wing, President Obama bashers, and those who don't know the truth.

"The official chaplains of the U.S. House and Senate are supposed to be nonpartisan pastors who offer spiritual support and guidance to our nation's elected leaders.

But on Inauguration Day, they're scheduled to speak at a right-wing event in Washington alongside some of the most hateful and racist figures on the Christian right.

Pat Robertson describes President Obama as a "socialist" with a Muslim "inclination." Joseph Farah runs WorldNetDaily, a conspiracy-theory website that continues to claim Obama was born in Kenya. Jonathan Cahn is a fringe "messianic rabbi" who sees signs of the apocalypse in Obama's speeches and writings.

We've only got a few days to stop House chaplain Patrick J. Conroy and Senate chaplain Barry Black from lending the prestige of their offices to this hateful exploitation of Christian faith.

Tell the House and Senate chaplains: Don't spend inauguration day praying with religious-right extremists."


Thanks!
