Go to: Prayer at a working lunch?

kidchicago's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by kidchicago

I think you showed a great deal of class and politeness in your restraint, as did he for initially soliciting your approval of the idea. Ordinary common contextual sense dictates that a constructive business lunch is not the proper venue for much else than talk of the business at hand, or at most, some trivial non-business stuff. That's why here in the USA, you can still deduct 50% of the cost of a business lunch, even if you are self-employed!!!

That being said, however, I'd probably have been tempted to wink at his request, and say "Go ahead--My family's views aren't very religious----but my wife is such a bad cook, we pray AFTER we eat!!!"

(A little humor can go a long way sometimes!!!!!!)

Go to: O'Reilly vs. Richard Dawkins

kidchicago's Avatar Jump to comment 22 by kidchicago

The Tide goes in, and the Tide goes out, but the snarled,crusted cobwebs in O'Reilly's brain remain. Maybe a change to bleach, borax, and brighteners would have a material effect.The man is utterly pathetic.

Why Richard lowers himself to the level of this stooge for some marginal incremental book revenue is totally beyond me.

Richard, perhaps you would entertain an explanation for us??????

Go to: Cardinal Bagnasco attacks Italy elite over scandals

As my fine Italian- American Chicagoland cement contractor, Rocco ( who's a contractor-friend of yet another great Italian American Chicagoland liquor distributor of the 1920's with the towel monogram "A.C." ) would say:

               "Dem who shouldn't be a-playin da game, shouldn't be a-makin da rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

(my apologies to the moderator on my prior incomplete, inadvertant, transmission--my fingers

As my good friend, Rocco, an Italian-American Chicagoland cement contractor who claims to have done "jobs"for another fine,upstanding Italian-American Chicago liquor distributor of the glorious 1920's with the initials "A. C." puts it,

"dem who shouldn't be a-playin da game, shouldn't be a-makin da rules"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, my non-believer colleagues, between this article and today's John Gray article, which wins the award for the best daily drivel?????
