News of the weird, my friends. Our “politics-and-religion-mixing President has declared, on this the national day of prayer, that the U.S. is a nation of prayer”:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060504/ap_on_go_pr_wh/bush_prayer;_ylt=Auh2YG3m0lrz_xYEcS4QLD6s0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTA3OXIzMDMzBHNlYwM3MDM-. I wonder if, on the national day of reason, he’ll declare the U.S. a nation of reason? Oh, right, we don’t have that national day. Yikes.
Thinking back to that recent study on prayer [TAOMPH245], it is now clear to me why the U.S. is split down the middle politically. If you have a 50% chance of suffering complications after heart bypass surgery whether people pray for you or not, I guess a nation of prayer has a 50% chance of being Republican or Democrat. Double yikes.
