"In the arms of the angels, fly away from here.
From this dark, cold [prison cell]
And the endlessness that you fear.

You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie.
You're in the arms of an angel.

May you find some comfort here."

- Sarah McLachlin


Is This Heaven?

by Mike Palecek


Just got back from looking outside.

This is Iowa.

How you doing?


Well.

Is this a great country?

Or what?

That is the question.

Looking for the truth about America. It's become a cottage industry these days.

Most of us are in the habit of believing things ┬ľ especially when they come from mainstream sources. We believe things mostly because we see them on TV, or because a "respected" expert or leader assures us they are true.

Geezuz, don't do that.
