Fortune Cookie Blog: Clerical Error

`

Blanket Statement: Thou shalt not make light of, or
worse yet, badmouth righteous, organized religion;
righteous being the kicker. To kick that statement’s
blanket off, there’s nothing righteous about an ego-
centric cleric or, worse yet, self-proclaimed prophet
who seizes the pulpit to profit personally/financially;
OR to proselytize/fund-raise on behalf of wannabes,
who, once elected, will gut society of human rights,
morality, liberty, etc; OR to trot out “sermons” that’ll
incite his cultish disciples to hijack commercial jets;
to kamikaze them into a nation’s iconic architecture;
or, via the coup, desecrate its citadels of democracy.

Fortune Cookie Blog: Window Shopping?

`

A scant stint of www window shopping led to a stunning revelation.
The MSRP for pretty stained glass windows can cost a pretty penny;
125K and, perhaps, even higher; and that particular lovely was used.
Let us pray we speaketh of a merchant / altruist who’s liquidating an
out of touch cathedral’s trappings; will redirect these proceedings to
homeless shelters/soup kitchens that nurture/nourish the estimated
154 million, tossed into the streets, Josephs and Marys, worldwide!!!

Fortune Cookie Blog: Goldilocks Zone

`

Goldilocks and the Three Bears can help
divine the happy medium of Devoutness.
Too cold and too soft leads to Irrelevance.
Too hot and too hard leads to Intolerance.
Just Right leads to Peaceful Coexistence!

Fortune Cookie Blog: Wonderment

`

The grandest stars humanity can ever encounter, seldom ap-
pear on the big silver screen. To meet them, find time to trek
far from modernity’s lumenosity, cacophony and monstrosity.
Escape the cityscapes to discover the truly dark skies, where
contemplation of life’s big picture-grand scheme comes easily.
As songsmiths Carole King and Gerry Goffin so melodiously &
insightfully remind, At night the stars put on a show for free!*

Fortune Cookie Blog: Responsibility

`

A reality check is long overdue. We must end the useless whining
and hand wringing about wearing masks publicly; conscientiously!
Never forget the Global Pandemic is far from over; that the deadly
Coronavirus’ main transmission mode is airborne! Be we Vaxxed
or UnVaxxed, the mere spoken word can spread infected droplets
to condemn members of our Human Family to their Early Graves!
The simple act of covering our mouths and noses protects billions
of immunocompromised & yet-to-be vaccinated souls, worldwide!
Stated less delicately: Shut Up, Listen Up, Grow Up and Mask Up!

Fortune Cookie Blog: UnClean Coal

`

Ironic how the climate change deniers can get all hot and bothered
about saving the never endangered Christmas, YET, fail to work up
a sweat re saving our endangered, overheated, burning down world.
Santa Claus should stuff lumps of coal in their Christmas stockings.
Nope, bad idea. Such firebrands would burn them in their fireplaces.

Fortune Cookie Blog: Pitfall

`

When compassionate souls extend unexpected, complimentary words:
The good response from the beneficiary is the rapid show of gratitude.
The best response: ensure benefactors feel no pressure to praise anew.
In other words, do all you can to avoid the bottomless pit of need pitfall!

Fortune Cookie Blog: To Serve Man*

`

Bad News: Global pandemic analysts’ reports warn us of TWO sickening
variants decidedly deadlier than CoronavirusClassic; even CoronaDelta!
[1] Headless losers, who flat-out refuse to heed mask-up / vax-up advice.
[2] Unkind humankind’s unwillingness to unite against a common enemy.
Good News: Carnivorous extraterrestrial spacefarers have yet to find us?
