    To quote one of my heroes Dr. Franklin Ruehl (now deceased):

    “You have achieved a small measure of fame, and that’s a lot better than a smack on the belly, with a wet trout.”

    A Jack Hyles search brought me here 5 or 6 years ago. (May have been longer, I’m getting old and forgetful.)

    Thanks for sharing those stats.

      I may have said before how immensely grateful I am, Bruce, for your blog. 5 years ago, filled with doubts about my fundy faith, I googled the story of Esther, looking for a new angle as I had to teach it in Sunday School. I discovered a post by Rachel Held Evans on her. I was amazed, I had no idea folk like her existed. I can’t recall how, but she led me to you and to Neil Carter and I was enthralled by your writings. Then I felt guilty and deleted you both from my favourites….satan must be tempting me..but I was hooked and re-instated you and you are a lifeline to me personally sometimes.
      I do wish you and your family a happy celebration of christmas and improved health for 2020. I also wish I had a magic carpet to fly you to one of THOSE countries. You know, those, like mine which have social medicine and are therefore on the verge of communism as PRsmith delusionally believes. Just imagine what we in ‘socialist’ countries take for granted, free treatment for all our ailments, and even, in my country, free prescriptions for as may pills as we need to keep us alive!
