From Lark, who currently resides in the big city of Washington, D.C.:

I had to relate this story. It made me giggle. Alot. Alotalot.
So I was just downstairs smoking a cigarette on my lunch break and I notice this crazy lady ranting and raving at the corner. Can’t really understand her until she gets closer. In her own words:
I’m not a fucking conservative Protestant, so stop trying to make me into one. I don’t want to wear the cross around my neck anymore Daniel, get it off. You’re not going to turn me, you’re not. I don’t want to ever be a conservative Protestant
She turns to me and goes:
You tell Danial that I will NEVER be a conservative Protestant again. You tell him!!!

So, I figured it was my duty. Stop trying to make the lady be a conservative Protestant if she doesn’t want to be, geez. I knew your preaching was going to get you in trouble some day.

ALS Walk

Good friend Christie Martin is once again participating in the ALS walk, this is a copy of the email she sent out requesting sponsors/donations. Given my step-dad’s recent death due to the disease and the fact that Christie has dedicated this years walk to him, I felt inclined to post this and to encourage everyone to donate if they can.

Dear Friends,

The ALS Association – Jim “Catfish” Hunter Chapter is
kicking off its annual Down East Walk to D’Feet ALS in
Greenville,NC on September 30. I am walking this year
and I am asking you to join me in the fight against
Lou Gehrig’s disease by making a contribution in
support of my Team.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal,
neuromuscular disease, which attacks the motor neurons
making even the simplest movements of walking,
speaking and gesturing impossible. Ultimately the body
becomes paralyzed, yet through it all, the mind
remains sharp for most.

I am walking this year in memory of Professor Gay
Wilentz and Les Fisher, two friends of mine who passed
away this year from ALS.

The ALS Association helps families in their day-to-day
struggle with ALS. They offer many crucial patient
service programs, as well as fund cutting-edge
research worldwide. Funds raised from the Walk will
support those programs.

Every ninety minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS.
Please help by making a donation – large or small – to
fight ALS. You may make a check payable to The ALS
Association and mail your check to me:

(Drop me an email, for her address…

didn’t want to publish it on the website)

or donate online now by making a secure credit card
donation at, or by using the
link to my personal page below.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Together for a Cure,
Christie Martin
