A few years ago it was quite popular to wear clothing, particularly wrist bands, containing the inscription, "W.W.J.D.", which stood for "What Would Jesus Do?" The idea was that the world would be a better place if we would ponder how Jesus would behave before we did something (stupid).

My first question is, "what do the tendencies of an Hispanic day laborer have to do with how I conduct my life?"

I think a better thing to consider, especially for men involved in relationships, is "What Would Lorena Do?" Yes, Lorena. As in Lorena Bobbitt, the woman who cut of her husband's... ahem... manhood while he slept.

You see, we all have to sleep sometime. And don't we all have sharp knives in our kitchens? Don't you think that the possibility of losing our best friend would have a, shall we say, moderating influence on our behavior?

So do I.

Now if only cafepress sold wrist bands.

A few days ago, I passed along an email asking for volunteers at WWJH. Those of us nearby and in the know immediately translated that to Westwood Junior High. However, some folks didn't ack the morf, and assumed it mean "What Would Jesus __?__"

Being outside the circle of those currently employed, I suspected it meant "Who Would Jesus Hire?" but there are other interpretations, any of which would subject my domicile to conflagration from one of those Right Wing Death Squads that will be in power for the next 4 years.

Hence, I shall remain silent, per dictate.
