~~~~~~~ WIT and WISDOM - February 22, 1999
"The greatest power a person possesses is the power to choose." - Author Unknown
(E-zine: WEEKEND ENCOUNTER http://www.gospelcom.net/actsi/weekly/)
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
"Sanctification means being made one with Jesus so that the disposition that ruled Him will rule us . . . . It will cost everything that is not of God in us." Oswald Chambers.
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:
Do not let them bury those people whose pictures you showed in Sunday's obituaries! Most of them look like they are still alive!
CATHOLIC FUMBLES, STUMBLES IN PLAYOFFS - By Neil H. Greenberger
Catholic fumbles? I cannot believe your sportswriters are allowed to single out for criticism persons of certain faiths. Everyone errs occasionally, not just Catholics. I guess Mr. Greenberger feels Jews never drop the ball, but I'm here to tell you I found one who did, in this awful article.
PALESTINIANS SAY ISRAELIS VIOLATED ACCORD
So now they're blaming the Jews for every car that's broken into?
MARYLAND AGREES TO TOBACCO SETTLEMENT
Well, that's just great. Just what we need - an entire settlement of people devoted to their cancer sticks. What's next, a drunk-driving commune?
BISHOP LIFTS KANSAS STATE OVER MISSOURI
A Roman Catholic miracle, and The Post buries it in Sports? This is
typical of your godlessness. I'm sure if it was some Vatican scandal, we
would see it on Page 1 above the fold.
BISHOP LEADS WILDCATS PAST MISSOURI
I find it commendable that the clergy are attempting, like Saint Patrick in Ireland, to rid the land of dangerous animals. However, your story irresponsibly fails to tell us where the good bishop is taking these creatures. Is he bringing them to the D.C. area? Show a little civic responsibility, please, and inform the public.
D.C. UNITED SE UNE HOY A CAMPANA SOLIDARIA PRO CENTROAMERICA
I was disgusted with the sloppy spelling for the article on D.C. United. There were so many typos I couldn't understand a word.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A lawyer was reading out the Will of a rich man to the people mentioned in the Will:
"To my loving wife Rose, who stood by me in the rough times, as well as the good, the house and $2 million.
"To my daughter Jessica, who looked after me in illness and kept the business going, the yacht, the business and $1 million.
"And to my cousin Dan, who hated me, argued with me and thought I would not remember him in my Will, you were wrong: Hello Dan!"
~~~ ~~~~ TRIVIA:
The ears, paws, and tails of Siamese cats are darker than the rest of their bodies, but the animals are not born that way. They are usually born pure white, then later they get the dark tips. Why?
When they are born, the kittens come from an environment (the mother cat's uterus) which is the same temperature everywhere. But once they are out in the world, the tips of their ears, paws, and tail become cooler.
Since the enzymes (catalytic proteins) that make hair pigment in Siamese cats work better at a cooler temperature, their extremities turn dark while the rest of the body stays light. In a cold climate, the whole cat may become dark.
Here's a cool tutorial about cat genetics (requires Shockwave):
