Today is 666, and the minions of the Beast are on their usual rampage

The way things are going in Iraq and elsewhere, it looks as if War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death should have a great day -- especially as today they’re joined by another scourge.
Ann Coulter, the leggy blond scourge of all things leftish, is releasing her latest book, "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," on this supposedly demonic day. In it, she asserts, "Of course liberalism is a religion. It has its own cosmology, its own miracles, its own beliefs in the supernatural, its own churches, its own high priests, its own saints, its own total worldview, and its own explanation of the existence of the universe."
Meanwhile, things look a lot less apocalyptic here in Madison. We’re planning to nurse our hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia over a tall cool one while pondering the mystery of why the squares of the first seven prime numbers add up to 666 and watching the sun set on Lake Mendota from the Edgewater pier (666 Wisconsin Avenue).

Unless, of course, the Beast makes it rain cats and dogs. Or, worse, frogs.

UPDATE: No, not frogs -- tornadoes.

No smoking in Madison bars. Seems unGodly.

Enjoyed reading your post. Cool place, Madisaon. As to Ms Coulter, have heard of her but don't pay any
attention just as I don't to those waiting for the Second Coming. Hope it happens soon. I'll take my chances of
being with the "left behind". Just thinking of a world without the likes of G.W. Bushs and his core supporters (assuming that they will all ascend to heaven) makes me happy.
