Well, yeah, but IIRC she just tears the pages out rather than "editing" per se.  Editing with a pen would've required a little more lucidity than River usually tended to have all in one place, I think.

I vaguely recall a pen to be involved in the scene.  I could be wrong.

Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson foresees war soon in Mideast

Oh, gods.  I read that as "war soon in the Midwest" the first time though, for some reason.  I can just see it now:  age-old rivalries between Indiana and Kentucky finally erupt into violence when a Kentuckian shoots the Hoosier governor...

...because the Kentuckian failed to kill him and we're still stuck with Mitch.  *runs away very fast*

(Disclaimer:  I don't actually wish anyone dead.  I'm just tired of "my man" Mitch.)

Damn, I thought not mentioning him by name would prevent him from opening his mouth.  Although he said nothing about the economy.

My favorite quote from the article:

Quote
"I guess he believes he has a direct pipeline to God," Boston added. "Given the number of false predictions he's given, I might question who's at the other end of that pipeline."

This reminds me of something that the comedian Wanda Sykes said on the Tonight Show a while ago in reference to Robertson's off the wall statements.  To paraphrase: "I think it's important to know what the Lord says, but why is he doing it through an old, senile man?  I think God is playing a twisted game of telephone.  He's saying something and seeing what comes out at the other end."

Have you ever seen Firefly?  This reminds me of a scene where one character decides to 'fix' the Bible.

Seen it?  I own the box set.  Wink  And yeah, you're right.  Though I didn't remember it before.

Ah, a big war.  Maybe after the election, depending upon who wins.

A replay of the Lebanon War though has been predicted for Oct for a couple of months.

You know, St. Columbanus DID turn water into beer for the Christians, and beer into water for the fornicating Pagans. I suppose Jesus could have done too. Wink

So did the christian start fornicated and the pagan suddenly calm down and become 'respectable'?

Apparently the Christians had a very respectable, non-fornicatory party. It's only pagans who can't be trusted with teh booze. Wink

Oh dear, maybe I should forgo that beer tonight.  Might make me do something I'd (probably not) regret.

Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson foresees war soon in Mideast

From the article: 'Robertson tied his warning to biblical prophesy. His letter, which starts out describing his concerns about Russian aggression in Georgia, predicted that Russia would also enter the war, though the United States wouldn't. "However, we may not be spared nuclear strikes against coastal cities" in America, he wrote.'

That's the loopiest nonsense I've heard in a long time. That there will be another war in the middle east is a fairly safe bet as there is generally one ready to flare up at any time.  That Russia will enter the war militarily is a real stretch. I can't see this happening unless Israel nukes a real Russian ally. That the US stays out of the war but US coastal cities get nuked -- by the Russians, I guess as no one else in the area has missiles capable of reaching US coastal cities -- seems just plain silly as it assumes the Russians are lead by people who think like Robertson. Fortunately, while Putin and friends have a lot of problems from a US POV, they all think much differently and much more clearly than Pat does.

All valid points.

And one should also take in consideration that Robertson lives not only on a coastal city, but also in an area that also happens to have one of the largest military communities and harbors on the East Coast.  I know if I had some revelation that coastal cities would be nuked I would head to an inland state that has no importance whatsoever.  Unless, of course, God is sparing the Hampton Roads area because that's where his chief prophet lives Undecided

If you ever survive a nuclear war for real, you'll envy the ones who died instantly.

Sometimes I wonder which one of the Deathless Ones enjoys making Pat Robertson look like such an ass, by whispering this stuff into his ear. Doubtless it provides great amusement to the Gods everlasting.

That does sound like something he would do, but given the sheer number of gods with warped senses of humor there probably are out there, it could be anyone Cheesy
