Guess Who's Got Friends?

Just a quick note: I've got TWO outside folks posting comments on my blog. One goes by the name "Blah, blah, blah." The other is a real live Jehovah's Witness by the name of Tomsheepandgoats -- who has an interesting blog about his faith right here (Sorry to disappoint, but the comments you may have seen on my blog written by someone named "Q" is really my good friend from school who I bugged to leave messages -- there, the wizard of oz is revealed).

Oh yeah, and the JW's that visit my house -- they've read my blog, too. They thought it was funny; which is . . . funny, I guess. I don't know what kind of reaction I wanted from them but "liking it" wasn't the one I thought of first. However, my wife has thus informed me that while they were very interested to read the blog about my trip to their Kingdom Hall, after they read it, they stopped asking about the blog altogether. I'm not sure how to take that.

Anyway, I hope Tomsheepandgoats will be my unofficial guide into the JW faith. You know how White folks ask their Black friends all the race questions that have been bugging them ("do you really think O.J. is innocent?")? Now I have someone to pepper with minutia ("Do you guys claim the Jacksons or are they the Black sheep [beige sheep] of the JW family?).

All that to say, people are reading my blog which feels like a big success considering that I have not done one iota of marketing or hyping. So read on and enjoy the sweet, sweet blasphemy.

Michael Jackson left the faith many years ago....disassociated is the term in his case. But maybe he'll come back some day. I'd like that. He never really had a childhood. I always thought the child molestation charges against him unlikely. I mean, when you're going to court, you lead off with your most credible witness. The government used a kid whose family had made false allegations in the past, shaking people down for money.

Prince is our guy too, who played at the Superbowl. Also, they say, are Venus and Salina Williams. And Mickey Spillane (recently deceased)

But in general there's not too many famous JWs. Our people tend to be low-key.
