What would Jesus use?
Hey, real (and "real" - you decide!) churches in Freehold, Iowa and Glassport, Pennsylvania are asking this same question!
PS: Overheard at the beach intersection of AIA and Las Olas Boulevard (just across the street from the Elbo Room):
Cute Girl #1: Where in the fuck is Ester?
Cute Girl #2 : She said she went to get us some Bloody Marys.
Cute Girl #1: I don't trust that bitch. Let's 'cowboy' her!
Cute Girl #2: You are so FOX ... and so wrong.
PPS: One bunny settles down ... with no worries about either Ester or Easter:
This from my 'minder':

AN EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED WITH THESE PRELIMINARY PARAMETERS
ORIGIN TIME - 1610Z 28 MAR 2005
COORDINATES - 2.3 NORTH 97.1 EAST
LOCATION - NORTHERN SUMATERA INDONESIA
MAGNITUDE - 8.5
WARNING... THIS EARTHQUAKE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO GENERATE A WIDELY DESTRUCTIVE TSUNAMI IN THE OCEAN OR SEAS NEAR THE EARTHQUAKE. AUTHORITIES IN THOSE REGIONS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS POSSIBILITY AND TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION. THIS ACTION SHOULD INCLUDE EVACUATION OF COASTS WITHIN A THOUSAND KILOMETERS OF THE EPICENTER AND CLOSE MONITORING TO DETERMINE THE NEED FOR EVACUATION FURTHER AWAY.
THIS CENTER DOES NOT HAVE SEA LEVEL GAUGES OUTSIDE THE PACIFIC SO WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DETECT OR MEASURE A TSUNAMI IF ONE WAS GENERATED. AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME THE DANGER HAS PASSED IF NO TSUNAMI WAVES ARE OBSERVED IN THE REGION NEAR THE EPICENTER WITHIN THREE HOURS OF THE EARTHQUAKE.
The threat of a tsunami has apparently not interfered with the quest for 'suds and sun' with these Spring Breakers.
PS: The Reverend Timothy Weems (*) writes:
"It should not be lost on heathens, blasphemers, fornicators and those who refuse to grovel on reflex that the Great Earthquake of '04 took place on the day after Christmas ... and that today's Great Quake took place on the day after Easter. This clearly proves that God was not only pissed off over what was not in His X-Mas stocking ... He was also enraged that someone rained on His Easter Egg Hunt ... the one at the White House in Washington."

Further proof that anyone is only six degrees from anyone else on this earth:
Did you know that you are two degrees of separation away from the Michael Jackson case! All of the Ericksons and anyone who knows Ann Serrano! (*) Yes that is right ... Ann Serrano is Mrs. George Lopez (comedian). Ann and George were called to testify for the prosecution today. I happened to be watching CNN and got a glimpse of Ann as she walked into court today. She looks very LA!
(*) Ann Serrano was Annie's good friend when they were about 5 or 6 years old.
PS: THOCBDC's Reverend Timothy Weems advises us that Brother Harry was the inspiration for Brother Jerry ... or, was it the other way around?
Spring Break tapers down.
But some are still up for it.
