    I liked the children’s book lessons, the annoy-your-local-conservative list, and the last one about the effectiveness of hell in controlling behaviors. The comments there were good too. Sad that the only thing keeping some people from lives of unchecked criminality is a fear that they will go to hell. And very scary.
