Buried Treasure

Mike at InedibleInk sent me this link this morning:

Baptist student finds $30,000 amid debris in New Orleans home while cleaning up.

The student, being a great Christian representative, made sure the authorities were notified and the homeowner given the hidden cash. It's a great story.

My two trips to the Gulf Coast, of course, yielded no such financial results. But we almost made the news. If you count CBN as the news. CBN. Maybe some other post I'll talk about the not-so-forthcoming nature of Christian based media.

Leave it to Mac to turn a gesture of good will and Christian values into...well...that

i'll email you my cbn story later, em. it's enough here to say that i found them to be pretty much just as manipulative and slippery as their secular counterparts, but they just don't pay as well. (no, i didn't work for them.)

I was making a little funny there, but you see, Peter, I was making fun of the people cleaning up the place. they have jobs, so obviously they aren't thieves.

now, if it was the police, or somebody from the city council...they'd be telling the world how impoverished they are driving around in their new car.
