I apologize for making this statement, but I don't apologize for holding this belief:
Isn't gluttony one of the seven deadly sins? That man was FAT!

So was greed, 4:49, and anyone who doubts the Revrund wasn't a poster pig for that must be blind.

Isn't it nice to see tolerant liberals and their enlightened musings, especially one weatherman who should stick to giving highs and lows...

Actually, Anon 5:34, these are pretty gentle comments compared to what others are saying.

Here's some good insights on what Falwell was really about: The Carpetbagger Report; Jerry Falwell Dies At Age 73.

I guess a person could take solace in the fact that people who could ill afford to support Falwell in a lavish lifestyle will no longer be obligated to do so.

Lots of mixed feelings on this one. I do hope he's in heaven today, surprised at who else is there with him!

It's rude to celebrate someone's death in the manner that's been done and it doesn't matter what side of the political spectrum they're on.
