Louisiana lawmakers ask God to avert oil disaster
In Louisiana, the legislature’s “State senators designated Sunday as a day for citizens to ask for God’s help dealing with the oil disaster.”
I say we all wish them all the best of luck with wishing on an invisible mage for help. But only so long as they don’t stop the real work necessary to address this disaster.
Then again, if all it took is wishing to make all of our dreams come true, my wish would be not to live in a country where the overwhelming number of people think making a wish on an invisible mage is the answer to their problems. The people would instead turn to intelligence and education to produce rational people grounded in reality.
Silly me though, not all wishes come true.
