View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Not to beat a dead horse

The following story is running on the AP wire:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ Groups from around the Capital Region are expected to turn out today to protest Wal-Mart.

The week of protesting was organized by the national watchdog group Wal-Mart Watch.

The group staged more than a thousand events around the country to protest the retailer's labor and environmental practices.

Capital Region groups like Save Rotterdam will join the protests. Save Rotterdam fought against a Wal-Mart supercenter in Rotterdam. The protest is expected to draw more than 100 people from around the Capital Region.

Maybe they should wish Wal-Mart shoppers and workers, "Merry Christmas!"
