    then it's hate. Just sayin'.

      their death. Maybe you just love their (former) victims.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

    •  Let me put it this way. (0+ / 0-)

      Do I hate Paul Crouch? Well, maybe a little.

      I mostly hate what he did - making billions of dollars by bilking little old ladies out of their Social Security checks, so yeah. I clicked New Diary and wrote some unkind things about him to mark his death.

      So, maybe some of it is hate, though I wouldn't describe myself as obsessing. I wrote my diary and I'm moving on.

      Perhaps it's also getting the word out about the scam that is televangelism, that has survived Crouch's demise. The TBN is big business. Every corner of the country has at least half a dozen Jesus channels spewing TBN garbage and inviting you to get out your credit card and call that toll-free number, thanks to Crouch.

      But some people the world is better off without.

      I may not celebrate his death but I won't waste any tears either.

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
