"Maybe we could have a Blessing of the Atheists. Turn it into a National Event. Some weekend after Labor Day would be nice. Or a Blessing of the Heathens, Wiccans, Druids, Pagans whoever wants to come. Liven things up a bit. Give them free…"

"Probably a better hypothetical question to ask is whether those councilors who voted yes are going to be jet-setting about in a golf cart or ORV, courtesy of Cox or Quinn.  The sad thing is, our city officials and employees have been the only…"

"It is definitely a violation of ethics that Cox did not publicly reveal his connection to the proposed ORV and golf cart ordinance. Even though he has tried not to show his true colors he has proven a worthy bookend for the other slippery City…"

    Migration Update

    The elves of the Ludington Torch were hopeful that we could move from our current Ning 2.0 network to the Ning 3.0 network shortly after our five year anniversary, but we have got news from them back that they are not currently doing any new migrations to the higher platform at this time.  We surmise that there has been problems with the migrations of other Ning sites, because some things do not transfer very well or at all, including videos and group modules.

    Now go to the…
