This just in: the pope lives in rome.



I remember in the early '70s, my grandmother, who was and is a huge Jesus freak, had an album by some ex-green beret who got like 3 of his limbs blown off in Vietnam and became a gospel singer.



I'm not sure if the religion came before the singer/serviceman's devastating loss or after. Either way, Seeing some guy in a wheelchair in his decorated dress greens with a prominent shiny metal hook for a hand singing about the goodness of god is a freaky thing for a 4 year old boy to deal with. I think I remember asking my grandmother around that time if jesus would give me (Yes, me. I really internalized the imagery.) a new hand if I prayed for one.


Remember those "touch the face of god" US military air superiority propaganda spiels they would play at broadcast TV sign off time? Do they still play those?
