"Take some time and put the Bible on your summer reading list. Try and stick with it cover to cover. Not because it teaches history; we've shown you it doesn't. Read it because you'll see for yourself what the Bible is all about. It sure isn't great literature. If it were published as fiction, no reviewer would give it a passing grade. There are some vivid scenes and some quotable phrases, but there's no plot, no structure, there's a tremendous amount of filler, and the characters are painfully one-dimensional. Whatever you do, don't read the Bible for a moral code: it advocates prejudice, cruelty, superstition, and murder. Read it because: we need more atheists — and nothin' will get you there faster than readin' the damn Bible."

"The Bible: Fact or Fiction?", Penn & Teller: Bullshit!, season 2 episode 6, Showtime, 6 May 2004

“To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Steph, sorry for not answering your question about my cat plans.  After studying on the subject and thinking about it more, I decided not to get a cat, because although I'm sure I would enjoy a cat a great deal, I'm sure the negatives would outweigh the positives.  

Chris (Plinius) ask me also, and I didn't answer her either because I didn't want to disappoint you guys.

For one thing, I figured it would cost me about $500 a year to properly care for one, and that's a lot of money for me. 

Another thing is the guilt factor.  I'm sure I would feel guilty if it cried when I left it alone in the house.  

I would feel guilty if I had to lock it out of my bedroom to sleep, because I don't sleep well, and I think it would disrupt my sleep even more.

I also think I would sometimes resent needing to take care of the litter box.

I would worry excessively if it looked like it was sick.

There's a few other factors, but suffice it to say, with my personality, I don't think I could handle it, even though I would love a cat for many reasons.
