Not emails, but text messages. Apparently, the prior user of my number was an Obama supporter. They don't even have the decency to quit after being sent a stop message. So I'm currently going round with the national Do Not Call registry about the issue.

If you notice, Mormons all read the King James Bible to this day, so the Book of Mormon will look more like the way they think God is supposed to speak, without stopping to think that the King James Bible was translated into the common language of the day, and that language does shift over time. If he had been doing a straight up translation, it should have looked more like the works of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Nathaniel Hawthorne, or Edgar Allan Poe, keeping in mind that he would have doing a direct translation. However, back then, King James was the most common edition of the Bible, so that may have been what most people expected scripture to look like.

Or they might simply not answer. When my brother called 911 to report a burglary where he worked, he was on hold for over 45 minutes before anybody even answered the phone. My personal opinion is that if they're going to take that long to answer the emergency hotline number, then they might as well not even bother coming over, since the house has burned down, the person has died, and the crime has been committed several times.
Some school districts have banned children bringing lunches from home. They want all children to be forced to consume the same thing, regardless of the fact that their prescribed diet will not meet the needs of all the kids, nor does it take into account that some children are very picky eaters, especially when you start getting into some of the special needs children, such as those with autism.
I think that one of the "family" members already has been.

The problem with that approach, is that it's far too rational. Especially for those who deem feelings and impulses to be all-important, and the proper means of (not) governing one's self.

I've always thought that the same principle applies here as in the high school locker room when someone is bragging about various exploits.

My sister in law grew up in Communist Poland, and watching it spread here frightens and infuriates her.
