This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Roosevelt Was On TV????

"When the stock market crashed [in 1929], Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed, he said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"

     -  Joe Biden to Katie Couric in an interview this week.

I know this was probably just a brain-fart. He meant to say "radio," no doubt.  But if Bush, McCain, or Palin had made the gaffe, it would have been on every late night show, and the theme of front-page articles in dozens of major newspapers.  They would have been labeled "stupid," "old," or "ignorant." Biden, however, just said "television" when he meant to say "radio."

I'm wondering when SNL will do a skit on Joe Biden. They seem to be stuck on making fun of McCain/Palin.

Another Biden funny. Last week he was trying to acknowledge someone in the room and asked him to please stand up...the only problem...the guy was in a wheelchair.
