    what happened after Mitt Romney met with Billy Graham.  Unwilling to discuss his role in the Mormon church, or his beliefs in public, Mitt Romney was still a skilled salesman and persuaded the Billy Graham organization to edit their website, to remove mention that Mormonism is a cult.

    So in private conversation Mitt Romney was able to woo support from someone who had ALL HIS LIFE opposed Mormonism as NOT Christianity. Somehow backing the GOP candidate was more important that sticking to life-long principles of what it means to "be a Christian."

      About the mowing. Some of them sure seem to be using grass killers too - which will not help getting new seeds to grow.  Meanwhile their turf is shrinking, a lot. ;)
