It is lunch time and I would like to send you over to a new blog:

Scott Ott writes the always insightful Scrapple Face, which you will find linked under “Razor’s Edge” on the right.  Well, that is not all he does.  Check out his blog at!

Today he is talking about the Eliot Spitzer debacle in NY.  Here is quote from his entry titled: “Eliot Spitzer and Me: The Difference Between Us”

There’s an interesting episode in the life of Jesus of Nazareth in which the people were amazed at his character, his integrity and his incredible accomplishments. But John’s gospel says, “Jesus on his part did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people…” (John 2:24)

It’s the same thing you know about yourself.

No matter what you may tell others (i.e. “I’m basically a good person.”), there is something at the core of your being that seems to stain even your best intentions. Like Gollum in the caves of Tolkien’s trilogy, it dwells within the heart and mind of all. Rarely does this beast reach full ferocity and manifest itself so publicly in some heinous act of cruelty or depravity. But it crouches at the doorstep for each of us, insinuating itself into our daily lives.
