Critiquing the Ten Commandments
Via InstaPundit, I see that not everyone believes the Ten Commandments are all that spiffy. I'm actually quite surprised that MSNBC.com would publish such a brazenly hostile analysis. Even if it is tongue-in-cheek, and I don't know Christopher Hitchesn to know one way or the other, I would think too many people would find it offensive. Yet there it is.
I'm back
So it's been a month. What can I say? I've been busy. I got a new job in a new town in a different state, the whole process had to be handled very quickly, and it took some time for things to settle down. That, and I've been unable to pull myself away from playing Knights of the Old Republic on my XBox [ah, the truth emerges!].

And so events have placed my family and me in a town we hadn't heard of until four weeks ago in a region of Missouri we have yet to learn anything about. I began working almost immediately after arriving here, and so far we have spent our weekends straightening up the house and such, having taken no time to explore our new environment beyond finding a good place to eat. It seems there's a local ordinance stating I must purchase some sort of water craft, as every other house has a boat of some sort parked in the vicinity. Apparently there are some nice lakes within reasonable driving distance, but again, we have yet to look for them ourselves.

Now that we are settled in, more or less, I should be able to resume posting on a regular basis. I apologize for the interruption.
