An Oh-So Tired Christian

Dear Offended Christian, I’m terribly sorry that your feelings are hurt again. I feel bad about that. None of us likes to be criticized, so I totally get it.

Insta-asshole

I recently returned to Instagram. The world of social media just got bigger. Now I have websites inviting me to look at the perfectly photographed lives of everyone I’ve emailed in the last century.
