Tangentially related...

One of the things that has always made me truly admire my father are his views on "illegals." My father is HIGHLY conservative, and often pushes my buttons for laughs. However, he hasn't ever understood why so many people are up-in-arms about immigrants. In fact, he went on a 20 minute rant wherein he made fun of the minutemen, exploded over the "they're taking our jobs and money" argument and set in on how we, as a country, have failed to live up to the "spirit in which we were started."
I think he would have probably written an amazingly snarky response to that letter, just because he has time and is grumpy like that.

Anyhow. This just reminded me of him for some reason.
Also, you may find this link interesting: http://www.therebelution.com/modestysurvey/
It was a survey put on to educate young Christian women about how their "Brothers in Christ" view issues of modesty. There are a few particularly hilarious responses. This link also doesn't fit with the original post, but it seemed like something you might appreciate (in that, I'm-oddly-fascinated/amused/off-put way).

I see what you mean about your dad. I mean, there was a time when working hard and getting rewarded for that hard work was supposed to be the point of the American Dream.

The link is great!
