…or so prophecies by a correspondent who mailed a letter to me at the Milepoint.com business address would seem to suggest.

Dear Gary,

I saw the newspaper article you were quoted in and wanted to write you a letter.

As you know the economy has had its up and down’s which causes many to wonder what the future holds out for them and who really controls the world.

Interestingly, the Bible explains why conditions in the world have gone from bad to worse and also explains what we can look forward to which is a world free of economic hardships, pain, suffering, injustice and war…

The enclosed tract explains the above in more detail. It only takes a few minutes to read and is well worth your time.

The old saying in aviation decades ago was “whether you’re going to heaven or hell, you’ll still have to connect in Atlanta.”

Nonetheless, and contra what this correspondent may think, I’m quite confident that it’s occupants of Willis Tower in Chicago that make United’s valuation decisions.

    The world is actually a far “safer” and “better” place than it’s been in any time in human history.

  2. Victor said,

    Hilarious. Maybe not United/Star Alliance but…..? To twist an old sunday school song, “He’s got the ‘One-World’ in his hand.” Ba Da Bump!

  3. Dave said,

    …..proving you have a wide and differing readership..

  4. David G said,

    Uh oh, you’re going straight to HEL next. :)

    People really need to stop informing their world view with a poorly written book from 2000 years ago.

  6. James K. said,

    Hmmmmm, what did the Protocols of the Elders of Zion have to say about points and miles?

  7. TF said,

    What planet is that in the picture… Kolob? It certainly isn’t the Earth! Those landmasses are as fictional as the contents of that pamphlet…

  8. Tom said,

    No true Christian would be interested in points and miles, and no true mileage runner can be a Christian. Let’s make fun of ‘em.

  9. Tom said,

    Can we make fun of Islam, the Koran, and Muhammad here too? Is that okay? It’d be fun.

  10. Elaine said,

    Oy vay!

  11. FlyingBear said,

    That’s Jehowah’s Witnesses, not just a generic Christian… Seems like lots of you got lucky with being targeted.

  12. mrredskin said,

    i’ll pray for you, nathan

  13. Al said,

    I’ve read that one. It’s a great tract.

  14. John said,

    Beware, beware! Some religious zealots have no sense of humor and will burn you on the cross, or wherever.
    A thought: Has a war ever been started by atheists?
